    Food still brilliant, cannot fault it, top quality and all delicious. Great vibes and busy happy place. We’ve been coming for ten years and always recommend it. But the service this year was truly terrible, like, really terrible which is such a shame as it now makes us think twice about making the 150 miles round trip for a weekend trip.

    The food was really lovely, however, when I went online to book over a week before our meal, I was only offered 3.30 pm or 8.30 pm (Saturday) as options. 8.30 was too late so we opted for the earlier booking. When we arrived we were informed there was a reduced menu between 3.00-5.00, only offering around 5 choices, which was a disappointing. We were the only ones in the restaurant, very strange as there was only 3.30 available, for most of the time so there wasn’t much of an atmosphere. We booked a table for 6 but they weren’t ready for us and had to push tables together. Something which didn’t make sense was when people started turning up around 4.30 they were offered the full menu. The food was nice but we travelled for 45 minutes, on recommendation, to get there, so overall we would have to say that we won’t be visiting again as we can get food just as nice a lot nearer to home.

    Ambience good, drinks are good, staff are really friendly, mangeress very good. However the food was lacking in taste, seasoning, and quality. Expected higher quality of ingredients and more seasoning and tasteful dishes. Lacking in taste - will be back for drinks but won’t be eating there again.

    We had an enjoyable evening Service was friendly however there were inefficiencies and errors with our order - particularly our drinks. Which spoilt it for us.

    Thank you to everyone at The Joiners Arms for providing a great choice of dishes on the menu. As a vegetarian I appreciate having a choice and I thought the vegan Poke Bowl was delicious! My husband enjoyed the choice of a number of fish dishes, so something for everyone! There's always a warm welcome at The Joiners Arms. It was busy and noise levels were high. We had a great time out.
