A pub with a past

With a wealth of Cornish history behind it, the Minerís Arms is the place to be for real food served with an old-world comfort. 

Walking through the welcoming doors of this 16th century pub is like stepping back in time, under the real beams and low ceilings of a Cornish inn that has stood the test of time. The history of the Miners Arms is the stuff of fiction, having over the centuries been a courthouse, a smuggler’s lair and even a house of ill-repute! Today the pub has earned itself a shining reputation for incredible food, splendid atmosphere and an all-round fantastic experience. 

Welcoming muddy paws and welly boots alike, the Miners Arms is the perfect rest stop for walkers and adventurers all year round, inviting weary travellers fresh off the South West Coast Path in to sit by the cosiest of fires with a hot drink in hand. Their delicious winter warmers are enough to revive the soul, with soups, pies, stews and winter crumbles freshly prepared and made to order, and a delightful array of cakes for the sweet tooth in you. 

The Miners Arms is a local favourite for its legendary Sunday roasts, so much so that booking really is essential to guarantee yourself a table at this fine establishment. Using the very best of local Cornish produce wherever possible, the team are uncompromising in their standards of taste, quality and presentation, and the level of service given is absolutely first class. Food is served all day, and with a changing daily special you’ll be utterly spoilt for choice. Don’t worry if you’re not quite up for a trip to the pub, the entire menu is available for takeaway, so you can enjoy this fresh hearty cuisine from the comfort of your own home.  

With autumn well and truly on its way, dare we mention the festive season? The Miners Arms is the ideal location for a sumptuous Christmas dinner without the stress of endless preparations and carefully planned timings, and the pub offers a fantastic venue for that long-awaited Christmas party, just make sure to book so you don’t miss out!
