“Exceptional food, service and surroundings!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013

I would recommend the Joiner's to anyone who likes great food, fantastic customer service and gorgeous decor. Who doesn't like all of these?!
The Manager was extremely helpful and even showed us some of the bedrooms to give us an idea if we wanted to stay over. The rooms are absolutely stunning and in such an amazing location. I couldn't think of a nicer place to stay.

“CHECK OUT THE FISH AND CHIPS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

HI Folks
I live in Alnwick near to The Joiners Arms in Newton . Let me tell you , I am a world traveller and have tasted food in many countries . It is a must to visit Joiners Arms if you are in the Northumberland area . I have fish and chips every time I visit the pub , the fish is that large it is hanging off the plate and the chips are crispy a nice bowl of mushy peas and home made tartare sauce compliments the fish and chips . Service is good food comes fresh and hot and a good selection of beers at the bar . Staff are very friendly and attentive . I am making an exception when I next visit on 7th December going for the Xmas Fair Menu.

“Tasty Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

Another lovely Sunday lunch - lamb was delicious, hubby's beef was succulent. Always a good idea to book cos it's always busy on a Sunday. I like how they offer the normal menu too so you can mix and match. The sharing platters are spectacular. Car parking can be a bit of a prob but just drive down towards the beach and park in the pay and display car park then it only takes 5 mins to walk to the pub - nice walk back after great food and atmosphere. Staff are always friendly and the service is prompt and efficient.

“great Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

We were staying in the area and walked here for lunch. It was really busy and we hadn't booked, but the staff were very friendly and helpful, and found us a table. The pub had a large, light bar area with 2 fires and was welcoming. We had Sunday Roast, and as a vegeatarian I was really pleased that nut roast was on the menu. The meals all came with a huge, home made Yorkshire pudding, nicely cooked veg and lots of gravy. My daughter had fish fingers from the children's menu. This was not the usual pub rubbish, it was slices of the freshest cod in batter and was delicious. Service was very good. I really can't fault this pub, if you are in the area it is worth a visit. They also do a fish and chip takeaway.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

Excellent Food / Staff / Beer & Setting, The fish & chips are enormous & good quality, 8oz handmade burgers are really good & the kids meals great value for money £ 6:95 for a starter, main course & dessert. There are crayons / colouring books to keep the kids & dad amused. Also have a take out menu.
