Stayed here for one snowy night. Fantastic room very tastefully decorated to a high standard, loved sitting in the bath watching TV while the Mrs used the cocktail making kit to make us both a lovely drink. Loads of extras and nice touches in the room make it that extra special

A couple of weeks back we stayed in a holiday cottage in High Newton, a) because we wanted a cottage near Embleton Beach, and b) because The Ship at Low Newton has long been our favourite Northumberland pub. No week in Northumberland was complete without at least 3 or 4 visits

Everyone enjoyed the size and quality of three dishes. As a vegetarian I was a tiny bit disappointed with the choices available. Liv and Lindsey were super helpful! Dessert was delicious. Drinks menu great.

Stayed here at the beginning of January as a birthday treat from my husband. Beautiful room and the little touches added to the room were wonderful. Loved the cocktail mixing kit! We ate in the restaurant that night and the food was lovely. On returning to the room my husband

Nice original bar and dogs made welcome. A lovely menu with a few interesting meals for vegetarians. Were only having a snack . Not expensive and a good place to stay by the looks of the rooms, will probably go back and stay here. No water in bowls for dogs - but they had just

I thought the staff were and always have been very welcoming and friendly - always willing to accommodate any requests - we just thought on our last visit the food wasn’t as good as usual . It is a lovely place with good atmosphere and welcomes dogs. We had ordered the bread basket which was disappointing as it contained only sliced bread ! It’s a great place for children and the children’s menu is very good

Hello Phyll, We cannot recommend the Joiners Arms for various reasons. Their '5 *' rating is suspect as it's from a 'Gourmet Society'. and not from any recognised tourist authority. Their rooms are ludicrously overpriced and the food, which is hyped up to be the very best of 'home cooked' but, in fact is 'factory food'. We saw it being delivered the following morning. If 'The Joiners Arms' presented itself as a pub which has rooms and does food then it would be entirely acceptable but its pretentious claims and very expensive rooms are not!
