The Joiners Arms is your very own village inn; a haven for lovers of fresh, locally sourced food served up with a contemporary flourish and drinkers of all tastes, from crazy cocktails to comforting real ales. Plus, we're big into families, so kids get to eat, rest and play with everyone else.

The Joiners Arms Restaurant is lively, friendly and a little bit quirky, and the perfect place to hang out when you're not engaged in spectacular coastal adventures or hiding out in your luxe Northumberland boutique bedroom.

We are located in one of the UK’s most beautiful places, in the heart of a National Trust-designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) which fuses the best of both worlds – spectacular countryside and a breathtaking coastal location just an hour from the metropolitan hearts of Newcastle to the south and Edinburgh to the north.

Our 5 Gorgeous boutique bedrooms are individually designed to put the luxe into luxury inns, with irresistible charms like four-poster beds, roll top baths and lots of room for love.

We’re only a couple of miles from the spectacular Farne Islands, famed for its bird life and Atlantic grey seals (boat trips from nearby Seahouses are wild and memorable!); Alnwick Castle and Gardens, home of the first two Harry Potter films; Holy Island, a little gem easily reached across a causeway (just watch the tide...), and some of the best surfing and water sports, golf, field spots, walking and country pursuits you could wish for.

We hope to welcome you to Northumberland’s most luxury Inn soon.

Good meal

Dollytub75, Burton upon Trent, United Kingdom
Me and my family went for an evening meal whilst on holiday in the area. The food was good and the service was reasonable. The prices where a little on the high side and one ot two of the staff were a little surly. My overall impression is that this is still a pub and not a fancy restaurant, and the staff should remember that.

Cute bag of sweets with the bill a nice touch

Vol3, Glasgow
Had a meal with my husband the other week after a walk on the beach. Really nice calamari to start, I had chicken and my husband had the pork belly. All were tasty and presented very well. Large portions, I actually couldn't finish mine so had to leave some potatoes. Ambiance was cosy in the pub, slightly less so in the restaurant as we came at an odd time (530) so it wasn't very busy. We'll come back again, perhaps a little later in the evening so the vibe's a little more fun.

Lovely dog friendly experience

Arrived for lunch on a freezing cold day. Decor great and we were warmly welcomed with our whippet. There were 4 or 5 well behaved dogs asleep under tables-so civilised- and the atmosphere was calm and relaxed. Our lunch was delicious-burger and lamb and staff all friendly and efficient. Rooms looked lovely and they have 2 which are dog friendly-our only regret is that as we live fairly close, we can't really justify an overnight stay! But all in all, an absolute gem. Highly recommended.

The Joiners Arms replied: Jess, Thank you for taking the time to review you visit. Glad we could accommodate you all and that you had a relaxing time with us here. We love the dogs coming in (the well behaved ones) and with you living so close hope to see you again soon.

What a great place

LordChunky, Holmes Chapel, United Kingdom
Was away with my parents in Embleton, our host recommended the Joiners Arms. So off we went! We arrived on Thursday at 12-30, my parents and I enjoyed a great meal. The Fish and Chips were superb, in fact all the meals were well cooked, perfectly presented and served well by the friendly staff. In fact we went back the next day, and thd manager remembered our drinks order. Again the food was stunning, in my case i had the drunken mushrooms.

The Joiners Arms replied: LordChunky, Thank you for your review and return visit. Thank your parents for recommending us please. Glad you all enjoyed the food and service. Hope to see you again when you are next back in the area.

Second visit not as good as before

stargazer385, London, United Kingdom
Having previously stayed for a few days a couple of months earlier and had a thoroughly enjoyable time with both our room, the food and the service, we decided to book for dinner when we were next in the area. It is always difficult to park as the car park is very small - only room for 4 or maybe 6 cars, but there is an overspill car park about 3 minutes walk away. Did not feel that the food was up to the same standard as our previous visit.

The Joiners Arms replied: Stargazer385, Thank you for taking the time to review and indeed return to see us at the Joiners. I would be keen to hear your feedback on the food and the dishes you had. Our food should be consistent and if not I we are keen to act. Please get in touch on
