“Lovely lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I was taken to lunch at the Miners Arms on Good Friday after a long walk feeling very cold and tired. I was completely revived after eating delicious homemade soup and hot ciabatta bread. The restaurant is lovely with great views and nicely tucked away from the road. I will definitely visit again soon.

“Disappointing all round”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

A group of us went Easter Sunday eve for a meal and a few drinks. Overall the food was terribly disappointing, they had ran out of steak, fish and duck and only had one ham left........not a great start. Two out of the three puddings we sent back and had to insist that they be removed from the bill. No offer of a complimentary drink for the inconvenience of the limited menu or the puddings. When we went into the bar after the meal, the bar had run out of some beers! Overall a very disappointing evening.

The food was absolutely amazing and it was a very friendly place. Cannot recommend highly enough. Landlord's not so hot on his general knowledge though.... ;)

“Nice place to dine and socialise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We were invited to the Miners Arms by our Son and his new partner to meet her parents, therefore an important occasion. This very attractive building set a little way outside of Plympton has the facility to sit quietly and hear oneself talk, so ideal for being introduced to new people.

The bar allows you to arrive before a meal and have a drink, and the wood burning stove with its sofas near by at this time of year is so cosy. If one was dining early there are some spectacular views out from the dining area, and in warmer weather a beautiful dining patio or scattered seating in the grounds if only wanting a drink.

Six of us dined a three course meal which covered different choices. I can only review what i ate, which was home made soup, fillet steak and creme brulee. All of which were of a good standard, presented well and despite the resturant being very busy at efficient and acceptable timin for each course..

Everyones meals looked good, apparently tasted good, and for us the evening was a success.

If one was to pick a negative it was our choice in our first bottle of Rose, which in hindsight we should have not drunk. Our second choice in Rose made up for it though. You win some you loose some, wines can prove difficult. Glad i chose the second bottle!

Do try the Miners Arms, it is worth the drive and i know we have been before for lunches and we will definately return.

“Lovely lunch experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Took the Mothers to lunch at the Miners and we were not disappointed at all. Two had the mussel starter which was very good. Then three had sea bass which was the best I've had. The two others in the group had the roast beef and pork which they both said was excellent and very tender. The chocolate brownie with ice cream and pouring chocolate sauce was devine. Very attentive staff so we all had a really lovely lunch and for the quality of food and service very good value. Will certainly go back when in the area.
