“Food and service phenomenal”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

This place is a must!!! We went on a Sunday evening (2030) after having all good intentions of going for a Sunday Lunch earlier on in the day. We went for the fish and chips which was delightful, great size portion and considering it was probably their last serving of the day, the quality was not by any stretch affected. The place was also heaving, which on a Sunday evening, is just another reflection of this fabulous place. The ambience, decor and general feel is fantastic. The staff were really friendly, efficient and ... Dogs are allowed :)

I will definitely be visiting again. Thank you Joiners Arms

“Great Food”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

We arrived here early just as well as it is very popular. The décor was nice and there was plenty room between the tables. The staff made us very welcome with quick service and still made time to speak to you. The menu had a good choice to select from, we had the fish which was brilliant with nice dry chips (one of the best we have had) and all the other meals we saw being served looked just as good. We will be back !!

“Lovely atmosphere, great food”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Friends of ours had eaten here some time ago so while we were staying nearby we thought we'd give it a go. We weren't disappointed.
It was Friday night so we'd booked. It's always good when the staff take the time to chat with you, which all of them did. Our order was taken within a short while of us being seated, and as all of the food is freshly cooked to order, the short wait for it to be served was not a problem. I had fishcakes as a main, which were flavour-some and packed with fish, which I could taste. The accompanying chips were cooked in beef dripping (seems to be a theme in this part of the world) and were good. My wife had the burger, which she said was well cooked and tender. She also enjoyed her chips! There is of course more on the menu than these, ranging from plates to share to puddings; all seemed to be reasonably priced
The place was busy and everyone we saw received good service from the staff (of which there were plenty). Thank you to all the staff for a nice night.
The Joiners Arms has been added to our list of places to eat if we are ever in the vicinity.
