Good food, pleasant dinner. Ordered the meat platter, garlic mushrooms for starters. All really good. Wagu burgers and steak light bites for mains, good quality food, lovely garden area and friendly staff. Worth a visit. Good basic homely food.

We just keep coming back! The food and service is great. Our dogs made welcome just as much as us.

Lasagna and rotisserie chicken are our favourites on the menu.

Not been to the Miners for a long time, it was always a nice place to go. We booked a table, no need place was practically empty, though it was a week day. The smell hit us first, musty and damp. After we sat down we realised why, the pipes along the bottom of the wall were exposed and the carpet had a huge water stain, so obviously been a leak.
A lovely waitress took our order. We both ordered steak sandwich, which says served on a ciabatta. My grandson had fish goujons.
We had a bit of a wait, not too bad though. Grandsons fish was lovely...but as per another reviewer and their photos, when our ciabattas were brought to us we nearly laughed out loud and said where's the rest of it! Talk about small and a few chips. It is listed as light bites but to us that means sandwiches etc. The managers response to this on other reviews (which unfortunately I had not read beforehand) is that as they only charge £6.95 they think it is good value for money. Err no! To that I would say, either charge more and provide more or clearly state that it is half a ciabatta roll! We requested mayonnaise and the young lady brought a bottle and said, really sorry there is not much in it but its the best of what we have. Basic stuff here guys! And no we didn't complain as what was the point? Would they have brought us the other halves of our rolls...I think not. Plus we wanted to give benefit of doubt, its been a tough year. But as our visit went on it got worse.....
The place is filthy! The toilets are dire. The whole place needs a good clean and repainting. Considering they were shut for so long they could have used that time to spruce the place up a bit with some good old fashioned elbow grease and a touch of paint here and there. God knows what the kitchens are like. Feel sorry for the staff as they were really nice but must be depressing working somewhere so damp, dirty and dire.
What a shame the place has been left to get in such a state as it has so much potential.

After a lovely walk down the canal we decided to stop at The Miners for a spot of lunch. 4 of us ordered a panini each which came with fries and garnish. When the food arrived we were all very disappointed as we only got a half a panini each (see photo). Definitely not worth the money. Our first time at The Miners and the we thought garden area is quite tatty and tired. The service from the lovely young waitress was good.

Dear LAMSTravels,

I'm really sorry to hear about your poor experience with us, our menu does state we do serve light bites - half ciabattas ... not paninis, having a price range from £4.95 up to £6.95 we do believe they are good value for money, if you felt unhappy with your meal I would have been more than happy to invite you back etc as we pride in our good freshly made food however I do feel your feedback is very misplaced.

Moreover, as for your comments in regards the garden area been tatty and tired - you do give away you are a first time visitor as this area was inaccessible a year ago, we have worked really hard on it to be able to accommodate our customers after the pandemic and the very tent you sat under is brand new not to mention the benches so I'm somewhat confused as to what do you refer as tired or tatty.

Your total bill average £9 per head and you stayed just under an hour, if you were not happy about the size of your light bite I wish you would have brought it to our attention trough the lovely young waitress that served you instead of just bringing it out on the worst ground there's for businesses.

Had a pleasant experience coming here for the first time. I was a bit hesitant due previous reviews from other people; wanted a few quiet drinks with a friend I hadn’t seen for a while. Fairly priced and lovely staff. Great customer service from a tall lad I think he was a manager? Didn’t quite catch his name! If you can let him know his manners didn’t go amiss- that would be great :)
