The Miners Arms has fast acquired the reputation for the place to eat on Alston Moor with its selection of high quality cuisine. The standard menu offers a selection of house fayré including the very popular Italian wood fired pizzas. There is also a selection of specials changed daily on the 'specials wall'. There is
always a wide choice of starters and main dishes with plenty for vegetarians to choose from - oh and lets not forget the sweets and whipped ice cream. Children are catered for with their own specials menu.
There is a good selection of wines, house wines from the Oliver & Greg's range sold in both 187ml and 70cl bottles (those with a more expensive palette ask to visit the cellar).
As the Miners Arms is becoming more popular as a place to eat it is often fully booked so it is advisable to make a reservation in advance (particularly on Saturdays).
Residents can also enjoy our extensive breakfast menu. We challenge you to find a better start to the day anywhere, with our selection of fruit juices, yoghurts, cereals and porridge, followed by·The Miners Big Breakfast - featuring locally dry cured bacon, pork sausages with natural skins, and Pennines black pudding.
Whether straight off the Pennine hills with a hunger generated by all that fresh air or a more formal dining treat, The Miners caters equally well for every occasion.
