WOW. If I could give this place 6, I would! Had lunch with my wife as a last minute decision. I'm so pleased I did. We were greeted by the manager John who I must say is quite possibly the best crack ever, friendly, proffesional and a true gent. All staff were amazing and friendly and the food was heavenly....

On arrival we were greeted with a smile, good beer and taken to a table. The menu was comprehensive and the produce sourced locally. We were advised to try the mixed meat platter between us to start with - FANTASTIC - the venison sausages in particular were sensational. The fish and chips were probably the best that I have ever...

Stopped here for dinner on the way back to Yorkshire, wasn't disappointed. Nice atmosphere, well presented. The food was great, I had the giant fish and chips, my partner the venison sausages, both very good. Will be back.

Myself and my partner stayed at The Joiners Arms a few days ago and we loved the whole experience, the room was amazing (Silver Beach), the staff were lovely, polite and very helpful and the food was outstanding, the Chowder certainly lived up to its reputation. The room was sumptuous and the view from the Juliet balcony was lovely, open... More

We had Sunday lunch which was our best ever followed by Dinner on Monday which was outstanding. Great staff, food to die for . We will return again and again. Shame about parking problems and the real ale choice could have been broader. Having said that....just go there.
