Tucked away in the pretty south-Leicestershire village of Bruntingthorpe, the Joiner’s Arms is an attractive, whitewashed old building that has built a good reputation for food. It is a Michelin Bib Gourmand-winning pub that has had plenty of love lavished on it by owners Stephen and Tracey Fitzpatrick.

Inside, the flagstone floor, exposed oak beams and church-pew benches with designer cushions look the part. It’s all very Country Living and thoroughly pleasant. Understated modern touches bring things up to date. The loos are clean and beautifully decorated.

Great Food Club has eaten here several times and has generally been very impressed. The Joiner’s is invariably full and the atmosphere is warm, happy and content; service is swift  and polite; cask ale is available and the wine list is extensive.

Our experience of the food has been good. When we had the soup it was fresh, warming and wholesome. A Sunday lunch of rump of roast beef with Yorkshires and seasonal veg was a delight. The mature Scottish beef was thick, tender and well-cooked; the roast salmon with leeks, peas and mustard-grain sauce tasted fantastic. Expect reasonably priced, good-quality, simple, well-cooked ingredients in lovely surroundings.

    I took my wife here for a birthday Sunday lunch after finding it through this website. We’ve since been back for the midweek menu and on both occasions the food has been excellent. Glad to see that it consistently delivers too.

    Staff are extremely friendly and welcomed our (sleeping) baby. Had good knowledge of their menu.

    Good beer too!

    Exceptional food for every occasion. Always spoilt for choice by their extensive choice of starters, mains and specials, especially with advanced knowledge that their puddings are always to die for – the mammoth souffle is always worth waiting for! A big thumbs up to the whole of The Joiners Team.
