The Inn, believed to have been built circa 1653 was originally a farm house, but as the local lead mines started to progress down the valley following the seams of lead, Inn’s and ale houses started to spring up to quench the thirst of the miners. It is said that at one time there were thirty seven places you could buy beer in the village of Winster, with The Miners Standard probably one of the first.
Over 350 years later we are still quenching the thirst of those who stop by. We are family friendly and pride ourselves in offering a wonderful charm and appeal of a traditional and local country pub. Our kitchen serves a great choice of home-made food, including specials and Sunday lunch, whilst we also cater for any dietary needs. As a free house we also hold a great variety of lagers, cask ales, spirits, gins and whiskeys.
