Yes all are welcome at The Joiners Arms whether you're after gluten free or a vegetarian you can be happy here. I know this because I've tried this establishment a few times now. I had to go more than once just to prove the first time wasn't a fluke........honest!!! The things I do to bring you a recommendation for all your dietary needs. Oh go on then I'll carry on.
The Joiners Arms is situated in the lovely Derbyshire village of Quarndon I have mentioned it before in one of my posts for Teapot Tuesday because I had a brew there and the teapot seemed never ending......ah that's why I'm a fan. No seriously I'm pretty impressed with the menu and the way your meal can be adapted to a gluten free option. They have nifty little symbols on the menu such a G for gluten free, V for vegetarian and O. O is for dishes which can be converted to a gluten free option.....see O for Optional, blooming clever eh? It doesn't mean that by the time they have taken all the glutinous things away that you are left with a plate full of peas, you still get a decent meal.
The staff are so lovely and really helpful too. On my recent visit I tried the Sunday Roast because it was Sunday and what I ate was definitely a roast dinner. Beautiful beef, vegetables and a gravy. They made all mine gluten free so the gravy was fine and I think the only items I couldn't have were the Yorkshire puds and a cheesy cauliflower dish so that was ok. Then I had a big fat chocolatey pudding which was also made gluten free but we don't talk about that because although I did devour it, in my mind I'm in denial. Sorry Slimming World.
The Joiners in part of the Chilled Pubs family and there are three other establishments: The Swan at Walton on Trent, The Bulls Head at Repton and The Hunloke Arms at Chesterfield. So pick one and go for a visit you won't be disappointed. At The Joiners there is a Garden Room Restaurant where you sit amongst the trees and it all looks very magical.
Outside in the real garden there is a huge wooden gazebo type structure with hundreds of fairy lights which look enchanting in the evening, and if you get a little chilly you can even borrow a blanket too. This is the home of authentic wood fired pizzas, tasty gins, homemade gelato, cocktails, yakitori sticks and homemade lemonade.......perfect!!! I'd better give you the website eh as you are just bursting to book.
