Visited twice in past week and very busy both times. Quality food with good choice and at a fair price. Very friendly staff with prompt and attentive service. Highly recommended - great for a meal before or after a walk along the beach at Low Newton.

Every time we have been for a lunch or dinner the service and food was excellent, The sharing seafood platter was more than enough for 2 and cooked to perfection So was all the meals we had . Would recommend to anyone The only downside is the limited parking

We booked a table at the Joiners fairly last minute for NYE. We were not disappointed. Shared the seafood platter for sharer which was amazing & followed that by the chicken & the lamb main. Very cosy and welcoming inside & excellent service. Would definitely return.
