Joplings is a small restaurant where there appears to be real focus on quality and attention to detail, which applies to the whole dining experience. The restaurant itself is very cosy and the atmosphere friendly. The choice of dishes is very good and the food we had beautifully thought through and cooked, the portions were just right too. It was a nice touch, so often lacking these days, that water, bread and butter are provided at the table. It is perhaps a little more expensive than the average local restaurant but for a treat or occassion I would certainly go back. My only criticism would be that as a vegetarian nothing suitable appeared on the menu - however on asking we were given a choice of 2 dishes that are available. My choice was lovely, I just wish these choices would be printed on the menu as I shouldnt really have to ask specially, some people may be put off if they thought there were no options. I will recommend Joplings to friends -the dessert (honey and pear tart with clotted cream) was a particular highlight!

Lots of seafood to choose from, from the main menu and the specials board. Dishes were cooked to perfection, however may have been a little too salty.
Staff were friendly and helpful
The restaurant is small but provided a cosy atmosphere.

Went to Joplins for the first time on Friday with hubby to celebrate my birthday. Can't believe we haven't been before! From the moment we walked through the door, we had the most fantastic evening. I am not a fish lover, but both my starter and main course were fish! Crab salad was the most wonderful thing ever and my husband's mussels were to die for. We both went for the King Prawn and Monkfish in Malibu sauce which was to die for. Superb service, lovely and quiet, unintrusive, table cloths and clean, sparkling glasses! All on my top 10 of necessities in a restaurant. We booked for our anniversary before leaving. Can't wait!
