Day 4 of walking the Cleveland way but any extra walking to this restaurant from the B&B was well worth it. Fab wine list and a truly excellent menu. All the fish dishes we tried were superb. Friendly & efficient service, no hesitation in recommending.

Small restaurant run by the owners. Nice ambiance and a service efficient and friendly, they certainly made you feel welcome. They do a fairly small meat menu supplemented with fish specials on a board depending on presumably what fish is available. We had a very nice meal. I choose Black Pudding starter and a Lemon Sole main which was excellent... More

From entry to leaving, this was quite simply one of the best meals I have ever had. Service was prompt, the owners were welcoming and attentive and actually talk to guests, expressing passion and a genuine love of their restaurant and the food which they cook and serve. Great night, great food.

Very friendly personal service from the owner and his wife, lovely ambience and delicious food, It is at the higher end of the price range in Great Ayton, but well worth it especially for that special occasion or celebration We have been going for many years and have never been disappointed

This small bespoke restaurant on the outskirts of Great Ayton is a real bonus to this village. It must offer and then produce some of the best fish dishes found in the North of England. They have a small set menu covering the normal usual dishes; but then they have a specials board with a variety of sea food cooked... More

I recently visited Joplins with my husband, although he had eaten here in the past it was my first time … it was superb! I loved the intimate atmosphere, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the wine was delicious and our meals were to die for – we both opted for fish dishes for the main course and agreed...
