We had checked out wine & food menu before booking here and were impressed with the fizz prices online, unfortunately Prices are incorrect and we're £4 extra in the pub then they advertise ?! Nice menu, there were 8 of us. We all had starters, pate, sharing platters and were impressed! For main I and three others had the lamb... More

I met up with an old mate and we decided to have a few quiet beers in The Joiners. Excellent pint of Razor Back, and I was informed the Thatchers Gold was excellent as well. Very tidy establishment with attentive staff. A great place for a mid-week beer.

came with 5 guests from the Netherlands at 6.10 tonight to be told we could not have a table upstairs because they don't want to join tables there, we could sit in the restaurant instead which (so we were told" would take a while to warm up having just been opened and has poor wifi signal") The sweet wine was...

Unfortunately the circumstance of being there was not great (wake). The staff were very friendly, the food was lovely (has a savory buffet) We were allowed to play music of our choice and take cakes. The whole process from booking to the day ran smoothly. Thank you to the team at the joiners arms.

Met up with friends for an evening meal. Beautiful building. Very accommodating as one of us was in a wheelchair. Offered to move us to a different area or open the fire escape up so we could eat in the lower restaurant which we chose to do. Steak was cooked very well and pudding was lovely. Would visit again.

Whilst staying locally for a long weekend we changed upon this pub/restaurant and we were really pleased with the food, the service and the price. All of the food had the feel of home cooked and was really tasty and I would recommend the Vanilla cheese cake. There is a garden outside and whilst we didn't sit outside there were... More

I was reading through other reviews of this place and wondered if they referred to a different restaurant - then I found a reviewer back in February who had a similar experience. Went today (a Monday, perhaps that's the worst day?)expecting a reasonable,cheerful eating experience. We were shown to a room with 3 tables, whereby our table was very close... More
