The Food in the Miners is good, sometimes you wait a little for service but overall its not too bad. I have been to this venue twice first time with my Partner and two kids the other just with my partner, both times we had an average experience with the food ok. The restaurant area is very basic in looks... More

We came here last year and really enjoyed our lunch so we popped in again with our two girls. Warm welcone, hot fresh food and a nice cosy pub. Service was great and we really enjoyed our lunch. We will return for a 3rd visit xxx

Booked a table NY Day Sunday lunch, the restaurant was very quite when we went, but did get a lot busier later on. The soup was excellent and hot accompanied by a toasted bread roll, the mains were hot and tasty but this one of two gripes I have from this visit while I completely understand that there is not...

I came here last month with my parents for a family meal. The service was friendly, and the food was ok. But I wouldn't call this a favourite of mine. My biggest problem with this restaurant is that you can't get comfy. The chairs are too hard and the tables are too close together so you end up eating back... More

The staff were nice. Very helpful. They arranged back door wheelchair access in a friendly way and had thoughtfully reserved us a table near the door. The place appears to be clean. Noise levels are reasonable. Music is not too loud. The menu does cater for vegetarians but is very limited. The wait for the food was 45 minutes. The... More
