My wife and I visited Joplins for a weekday evening dinner. We were very well looked after by Martin and Gill. The quality of the food and the service were excellent. The sea bass in Pernod is an old favourite and was as good as...ever.More

Thankyou so much Martin ( also known as Richard 🤣) and Gill for your faultless hospitality again . Lovely relaxed night with super fish courses and friendly staff , despite our rather “ enthusiastic “ presence ! Many apologies Martin for renaming you with my...husbands name , I blame the wine !

The feeling upon entering is a little bit like stepping back in time as we remarked that this reminded us of having dinner out in the 80s The food however was very 'of the moment' with beautifully presented mussels for starter and halibut for main...course. I Ioved the fact that we had the table for the entire evening so nothing is rushed. I would have liked a Pinot Grigio on the wine list, it is a very popular wine so i was a bit surprised this wasn't an option Service was great too.More

Ate here with friends on the last evening of our holiday last week. Saved the best for last! The food was amazing and the service was perfect. Couldn’t fault anything. Will definitely be going back when we return.

Have visited Joplin’s on several occasions in the past 20 years and the food has never failed to impress. Some of the best seafood we have eaten in the UK. Service is efficient and unobtrusive. It is quite pricey but food of this quality is...certainly worth it. A quick drink in the bar while we looked through the menu and when the food was ready we were shown to our table. For starter we had mussels which are delicious and a seafood pancake, excellent. The Sea Bass cooked with Pernod, Monk fish cooked with Scallops and a Malibu sauce can most definitely recommend.More

Only one word for this gem of a restaurant, superb. We were made to feel welcome from the second we came through the door (Gill even opened the door early for us). Martin and Gill are excellent hosts and the food is outstanding. Sadly, it...is too far to visit on a regular basis but we will definitely return the next time we are in the area.More

It’s been a few years since I was last here but the food is as good as always and the staff are friendly and accommodating. They specialise in fish but there is usually at least one meat option if a member of your party isn’t...keen on seafood.More

Joplin’s is not at the centre of some great metropolis, but it most definitely is at the core of what dining out is all about. A small intimate environment where you are not made to feel like a number, a sensibly sized menu that ensures...nothing ever gets close to a microwave and above all, really really well cooked food prepared by hosts who clearly have a passion for their business. My wife and I were first time visitors to the restaurant, which sadly is just a tad too far to visit from home for a night out, but it is definitely a “must return” when in the area. You will regret not trying it if you do get the chanceMore
