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.

Went here for Sunday lunch after rave reviews from friends. Didn't live up to the hype. Bar area far too hot (what's with the giant spotlights beaming down on your head?!?!) . Food not great, beef chewy, fatty and full of gristle, left a lot of it on the plate as it was inedible. Maybe we picked a bad day... More

Been to the Joiners a few time previously and always had good food. This visit saw a new choice on the menu, and the Piri Piri Beercan Chicken was awesome. Tasty, spicy and big enough for Two people. A great range of drinks and excellent service makes the Joiners a must !
