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”
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”
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.

“Better than your average pub grub!”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

First visit to this lovely country pub for lunch with my daughter, who is a regular there. The food was delicious and beautifully presented in the light and airy dining room overlooking views out to the moors. Very friendly and pleasant staff. OK more expensive than the average pub, but it was definitely worth it - even though I was not paying on this occasion! We shall go again. The pub itself is cosy and oldie world in complete contrast to the dining area.

“Ok I suppose”
Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Tried the miners arms at the weekend
The service was good felt relaxed
The food was average nothing another place like Treby, tanners or Morgan's couldn't excel in
I would have said it was a pleasant visit until I decided to have a few beverages at the bar after our meal,
When there was a vile tongue man speaking in graphic details of his once was manager at the place
At which point I gathered this rugged looking gentleman was the owner
no matter if you mix business and pleasure this should not be for the ears of paying customers
