Where to start?? So many places around Teesside to eat...... (But only a few I'd recommend) Well this is one of them, Joplins in Great Ayton is a no brainer and I'm over the moon to say this has maintained its high standards over the...last 30 plus years on every level, the service being second to none, the individual dishes are to die for and the ambiance remains the same. Simply brilliant.More

We went for dinner with some friends that were made very welcome by our hosts Martin and Jill and Connor the waiter There is a tremendous selection of seafood available and I enjoyed a lovely fresh Cromer crab followed by a large plaice Halibut and...some monkfish are also on the menu and there was a tremendous selection of puddings Martin recommended various wines to us all of which were as a decent price The atmosphere is fantastic and the restaurants only seats about 22 so personal service is guaranteed It has been 40 years since I last days her but we will definitely be returning very soon Thank you for a wonderful eveningMore

Celebrated my husband’s birthday here. It is a restaurant we enjoy going to for special occasions. As always we received a lovely welcome. The food and wine were good - the seafood towers for starters and halibut main course were delicious. We love the atmosphere...of this small cosy restaurant and are made to feel special by Gill and Martin, the owners.More

I had been wanting to visit this restaurant for many years, but had never got around to it what a shame! Because it is second to none. I had the seafood pancake which was just delicious, my partner had the seafood tower, equally as good....To follow I had the monkfish in malibu which was excellent. The vegetables all delicious and cooked well The whole evening was amazing from walking through the door, a warm welcome, lovely ambience. Would highly recommend going. Not many places around which serve seafood as good as this.More

Four of us visited Joplins on November 29 to celebrate our son's birthday. We hadn't been there for some time and wondered if it would be as good as it used to be but we needn't have worried as it was excellent. The food was...superb, the restaurant itself has a great feel to it and the staff are friendly and attentive. Altogether a very enjoyable evening.More

We visited Joplins for the first time last night. I had the crab starter and halibut main course followed by a lemon tart and my partner had the seafood tower, fillet steak and sunken chocolate cake. All of our courses were beautifully cooked and we...thoroughly enjoyed our choices, in addition to great food and a nice bottle of wine we received a great service from all of the staff. We’re already looking forward to returning!More

I took my partner here for his birthday. We had passed the place many times but never seemed to get around to visiting. We certainly weren't disappointed. We were met with a warm greeting on arrival into a lovely little bar area, the restaurant is...small but perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed our seafood starters, followed by a perfectly cooked fillet steak. Highly recommended for that special occasionMore
