The Joiners Arms

The Joiners Arms - the only luxury 5 star inn in Northumberland; 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, you will find a funky mix of raw panelling and old stone walls, with low-hanging lamps above the bar and a coal fire smouldering away. There are stripped floors, tables in bay windows, local ales, then cakes on the counter you can't resist. The restaurant comes in chic cabin style with raw wood walls and green leather banquettes,the perfect place to hang out when you're not engaged in spectacular coastal adventures or hiding out in your luxe Northumberland boutique bedroom. As for the food, come home to tasty gastro fare, perhaps smoked haddock chowder, a delicious Northumbrian steak, sticky toffee pudding with ginger ice-cream.

"The Joiners Arms is an inn and restaurant of which the county is justifiably proud. The quality of accommodation provided is amongst the best in Northumberland with wonderful, individually designed bedrooms that visitors won’t want to leave, despite the Joiner’s spectacular location on the beautiful Northumberland Coast set in lovely rolling farmland. Perfectly located for exploring the best of Northumberland’s attractions including Alnwick Castle, the Alnwick Garden and Bamburgh Castle, the Joiners is also developing a reputation for good, locally sourced food with a menu that features the best Northumberland has to offer from fresh seafood plucked from the nearby North Sea, to Northumbrian beef, lamb, cheese and game. Northumberland Tourism is delighted to recommend the Joiners to residents and visitors to Northumberland alike."

Man’s Best Friend

Our four-legged friends are a very big deal at The Joiners Arms, where our breathtaking coast and country is heaven on earth for any creature with fur, four legs and a wet nose.

From Dachsunds to Dalmatians, Chihuahuas to Catahloula leopard dogs (yes, really!), we love them all.

Please contact our booking team to find out exactly how we can look after you and your k9 companion, which rooms we can offer you and all the little extras we have for you and your pooch to feel truly pampered.

We would love for you and your canine friend to stay over here at The Joiners Arms in one of our dog friendly rooms.


Our Pooch Policy

The majority of staff and customers here at The Joiners Arms are very fond of dogs. We can provide bowls brimming with water, or for the adventurous we also supply a range of dog beers, available in beef or chicken. However, not all people are dog lovers, some even have a fear or allergies. So due to the increased number of four legged customers, we’ve introduced this code of conduct so that everyone can relax and feel comfortable.

In an attempt to reach a happy medium, we would appreciate if these guidelines were followed:

  • Dog should be accompanied by their owners at all times, both in and outside the pub.
  • When inside please keep your dog on a lead and off the furniture
  • Please do not allow your dog to jump up at anyone
  • If your dog is barking, please attempt to quiet them
  • You may be asked to take your dog outside due to incessant barking
  • Aggressive dogs will not be tolerated

Our hope is that by implementing these guidelines we can create a warm welcoming atmosphere for all our customers, both four legged and two!
