The Miners Arms

Welcome to The Miners Arms. A unique 17th century pub and restaurant at the foot of Dartmoor, serving the best in local food and real ales.

Beautifully positioned in the secluded hamlet of Hemerdon near Plympton, The Miners Arms gives you the perfect moorland pub setting with fabulous views looking out over Plymouth Sound.

For a bite to eat, you can satisfy your taste buds with some of our gastro pub food in our relaxing bar and restaurant. Indulge yourself with our locally sourced, seasonal menu and extensive wine cellar. Or try one of our real ales, including our own, locally brewed Tungsten Tipple.

At The Miners Arms Plympton, not only do we serve you fabulous food in a wonderful family friendly pub, but our team are always planning regular events as well. Everything from monthly ladies lunches, beer & cider festivals to family fun days and plenty more. 

Located just a stone’s throw from the trails of Dartmoor, of course we’re no strangers to a bit of mud! A regular stop-off point for ramblers and cyclists taking advantage of the area, muddy boots are OK with us. We’re a doggy friendly pub too, so walkers with muddy paws are more than welcome!

As we have a bridal path running right next to us, we also welcome any horse riders that pass through. We have a dedicated area for your trusty rides to rest up and get refreshed, while you enjoy a refreshment of your own.

We’re also a great family friendly pub. Perfectly set up for large family get-togethers and smaller occasions or celebrations in our restaurant. Plus, our outdoor children’s play area will be more than a match for the little ones!

Outdoor Kitchen

We are privileged to have a wonderful outdoor kitchen. This gives us the perfect opportunity to showcase our chefs and their culinary skills while you sit back and soak up the fun atmosphere in our extensive beer garden.

So why not stop by for a visit? We’ve got great food, a great atmosphere and real ales – it’s a great choice to start or finish your day.


Aside from our wonderful food, we take pride in being a real ale pub, and offer some fine drops to bend one’s elbow! Serving five real ales, we mix things up by taking in two guest ales each month. Our established three are a prime choice of Bass Pale Ale, local Jail Ale, and our own exclusive ‘Tungsten Tipple’.

…our very own EXCLUSIVE ale

Especially brewed for us by Dartmoor Brewery, ‘Tipple is a firm favourite with our locals and promises to quench ale lovers everywhere. ‘Prove your mettle with a Tungsten Tipple’ as they say…

A well stocked cellar and bar is essential to any real ale pubs or restaurants and here at The Miners Arms, we give you as wide a choice as possible. We know a good wine brings the best out in our food, so we always have a good selection on our list, including locally sourced wines.

From fruity whites and hearty reds to rosé pinks and fizz; we take our wines as seriously as our food, so you can always expect the grape to match the quality of your meal to get the perfect combination.
