On our weeks stay nearby we had a list of pubs to visit, this is the only one we visited twice. The food was great and the welcome friendly. We will be back on our next holiday in Northumberland!

The beef melted in your mouth and as well as roast and mashed potatoes there were 8 other types of vegetables which were all beautifully cooked. The service was very good and the staff very friendly and helpful. Will... More

We recently stayed overnight for my husbands birthday. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was lovely with little extras to make our evening enjoyable....cocktail to make in the room, complimentary drink. We had a meal in the restaurant. It was lovely. We will definitely go back.

We found this place when we were in Northumberland for the weekend, it's nicely done up inside so we were expecting to have to sit outside with our 2 dogs and were pleasantly surprised when they welcomed them to sit inside! Lunch was delicious, we had a sharing platter of bread and olives to start with and then my bang... More

The staff as soon as we walked through the door were wonderful and friendly. The food was so tasty - every course was perfect. As a vegetarian it was best Sunday lunch I have had, other courses were great- especially the delicious deserts!

The Joiner Arms is visually pleasing. The pub/restaurant is cosy and inviting with the outside seating area being a good spot to catch the sun. However the food let's this place down greatly. We ordered the seafood platter to share for starters, roast beef and a veggie burger for our main meals. The platter was poorly presented, with the mussel... More
