Perfect for a special night out

Lovely cosy atmosphere, very attentive staff, superb food (with regularly changing "specials"). The front of house staff and the chef make a point of asking you if everything is cooked correctly for you. Excellent wine list that isn't ridiculously expensive. Try to leave room for pudding! They do... read more

Lovely cosy atmosphere, very attentive staff, superb food (with regularly changing "specials"). The front of house staff and the chef make a point of asking you if everything is cooked correctly for you. Excellent wine list that isn't ridiculously expensive. Try to leave room for pudding! They do mid week themed nights too.

We really love this restaurant - the food is to die for, and I would recommend to anyone who enjoys creative and interesting food. A special place. Unfortunately not able to get there too often but when the opportunity arises we take it. My very, very favourite place to eat.

We were attending a festival at Stanford Hall and via tripadvisor discovered this restaurant. My friend has a gluten allergy which the restaurant accommodated without any drama. Starters and main fish dishes were perfectly cooked and lovingly presented. Deserts were absolutely amazing one was fabulous liquorice with berries the other chocolate pave with Turkish delight ice cream. We had never... More

Like another recent reviewer we had not been to the Joiner's for many years following some appalling front of house service but looking for somewhere local (we live 4 miles away) to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and having seen some good reviews on Tripadvisor we decided to book for lunch. And what an excellent decision that was. The front... More

Having only recently discovered this restaurant I have to say I'm blown away. The quality of food and service is exceptional especially for the price. Probably the best dining in the south of Leicestershire and far better than others of a similar ilk. Recommended.

First time we have visited the Joiners Arms for about eight years. We were not disappointed. The service was prompt and attentive, the food was excellent although I was not so keen on my mushrooms with breadcrumbs on top...found it dry and dont think it really works. However the rest of the food was great and value for money

What a team and what a result! Space in this old pub is at a premium but somehow everybody is seated and served reasonably quickly with excellent food from a varied menu made up of a good regular selection of dishes and as many dishes again on the specials board. There's a good but not too extensive selection wines and... More

Wanted somewhere special to dine for a 'date night' with my wife (25 years married) and found some good reviews and dined here last night. What a find - great ambience, friendly and professional and friendly staff, and nice surroundings. The food was frankly superb - my wife commented that the food was in the same class as we got...

While up in the Lutterworth area on business, my wife & myself wanted a decent lunchtime meal before heading back to Surrey. Having meandered aroung the lovely countryside, & not having seen a hostelry that fitted the bill, I asked a dog walker just outside Bruntingthorpe if there was a pub with decent grub nearby. His reply was that there... More

We just had a lovely lunch here, nicely unusual menu, great service, great cooking. Not our first visit, probably about the fourth and certainly not the last. My one and only criticism was that the batter on the tempura haddock was not a proper tempura batter and was therefore somewhat greasy but perfectly nice apart from that. It was such... More
