7 of us for lunch. Welcome could have been warmer but in the end it was ok. We all had the "cobs" which were actually baguettes and they were fine - good value and reasonable presentation. Strange to find a pub that doesn't have cola and lemonade on draft - all poured out of bottles - Coke and R Whites - no ice. We were staying in nearby Birchover and had walked here across the fields. Don't expect too much. If you're just looking for a value lunch and don't care too much about your surroundings or having a warm welcome its fine.

Having visited winster several times we decided to spend new year here.Bringing two freinds(Lynne and don't move dave) we booked a beautiful cottage(the old barn) for a weeks stay.on our arrival we decided to head up to the miners standard.we got the usual friendly greeting by both bar person and locals.throughout the week we called in a few times,on one occasion at 4-45 and was sooo hungry only to find out that they didn't serve foot till 6.However as the cook had just arrived he/ she very kindly aloud us and a rather large party to order.the best was yet to come.we all decided at new year to eat at the standard then head down to the bowling green too see the new year in( it's closer too cottage for the stagger back) it became apparent rather early on that we wouldn't be going anywhere,the atmosphere was fantastic(mostly thanks too the young girls n lads sat next to us) I know they usually go into bakewell but said that was the second year they decided to go to the standard.thanks girls,they even got my old man doing karaoke ,something me and my sons never thought we would see.

We visited the Miners Standard about five times during our short stay in Winster, Derbyshire. The beer was well kept and well priced. The service was first class and customers were made to feel very welcome, not only by the staff, but by the regulars too. We ate there on a couple of occasions and the food was good honest pub food. The surroundings were those of a proper country pub in an old lead mining district. Nothing fancy, but comfortable. Our dog liked the pub too, every time we visited she was given a few treats by the bar staff or regulars. If you are in the Winster area and like a nice pint then give it a try.

Have dropped by here a number of times in the past when visiting the area and have always found it warm and welcoming, with tasty good value food, friendly staff and locals to chat to. Dogs are welcome too!
Bit disappointed that on our last visit (on a Saturday evening) that no food was available due to a shortage of suitably qualified staff - meant we had to prise ourselves away from the lovely wood burner to go in search of a meal elsewhere. Such a shame, but we'll be back soon!
