Review on The Miners Arms
The village of Eyam became known for an isolated outbreak of the Great Plague in the 1660s, and the white-painted Miners Arms is said to adjoin one of the plague burial grounds - the place also plays host to the ghosts of two young girls, so beware. The pub was created from a row of lead miners' cottages and was a popular local bolthole for slaking the thirst after a shift, but it's now firmly in the Peak District tourist zone.
The building still retains its rustic character with a warm and cosy ambience, and like the other buildings in the village, the commemorative plaques tell of the village's chequered past. As for the food, here you can tuck into reliable pub grub influenced by French, Mediterranean and North African styles with a strongly pronounced emphasis on fish. Expect dishes along the lines of tuna steak on ratatouille or herb-crusted salmon with sweet chilli sauce, plus Bakewell pudding for afters. Perhaps you could stay the night too, but if you hear anything go bump in the night, don't say you weren't warned!
