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.

Having heard excellent things about the Joiners Arms we booked for an evening meal. The restaurant was busy, the staff efficient. The food however was average, I ordered the mussels which were small and overdone in a watery bland liquid, I mentioned this to the waitress who said she would take this back to the chef. My other half got tempura prawns which were nice. We both got the lamb skewers for our main course and thought they were ok, but nothing outstanding. Overall we were disappointed having heard good things about the Joiners.

The Joiners Arms replied: JR, Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to see us here at The Joiners Arms. I would be keen to discuss the food quality with you especially the mussels; I would also be keen to confirm your choice of the Lamb Skewers as this is not a dish we have had on the menu for some time. I do appreciate your feedback and hopefully I can get an opportunity to discuss your visit with you. Please contact me on or directly at the Joiners via phone.

Tasty Burger

Lovely welcome for us and our dog, after a lovely walk along the nearby beach. The burger was one of the best i have ever eaten, my wife loved the fish and chips she had.

The Joiners Arms replied: Cheffy5, Thank you for your feedback and great to here you both enjoyed 2 of our long standing favourite dishes. Hope to see the three of you back again soon.

Stopped by for a weekday lunch en route to our holiday destination. Wished we'd gone elsewhere to be honest. Beer expensive at £3.90 a pint. Small bottle of lemonade £2.85. The Pork Loin was disappointing and despite missing some of the prime ingredients promised on the menu there was no substitute or refund offered - dear at £14.95 for a snack. There was no ham for my wife's Farmer stottie (dry bread bun). Maybe it was because it was Monday lunchtime, but the waiting staff should have been warned by the kitchen so they could advise the customers.

The Joiners Arms replied: james f, Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on your visit. We check our prices on a regular basis against our local competitors and are very confident in our pricing structure. Taking into account a few places charge £5 per pint I am happy that we offer fantastic value with a great selection. The Lemonade we sell at £2.95 is the Fentimans Victorian Lemonade which uses great botanical's and is a premium product hence the price, we also offer regular lemonade in glass & pint quantities at a price of £2.30 for a glass & £3.30 for a pint. I you feel you have been misled on this please do get in touch with me. Having spoken with our kitchen team and head chef with regards the food experience it is disappointing to see your feedback on the pork and I can assure I will be paying extra attention to this dish over the coming services. There was no reason any of the pork dish should have been missing ingredients as all were fully available for service, this is however a main dish and not part of our snack menu and again I feel our pricing structure on this dish is very competitive. All our bread is delivered fresh daily from Trotters of Seahouses and I see no reason why you would be served a dry bread bun. There was indeed no ham for service on Monday which is why we offered 2 substitutes during service for this. If this was not communicated to you I can only apologise and this is something I will be addressing with the team and manager on shift that day as it is clearly marked on our briefing notes for the day, which we keep on site for at least 1 year. Overall it is obvious you have not had a good experience at all and if you feel you would like to discuss any of the points raised with me please contact me directly ( I will be more than happy to spend some time with you. I do appreciate your feedback as I do with all, it is extremely important to me and the rest of the team that we listen to our customers and act upon their opinions. Thank you again james f.
