Looks like a large or extra large from the length of the boom.

The seller said in the listing that it's too big for him at 6ft!!
That frame looks huge - On an Extra Large it should be 370mm between the steerer and the bottom bracket and on a Large it should be 340mm.
Maybe this was a special build for Goliath??

Miles gives the BB to the front of the handlebars as 370 mm for an Extra Large. Wheelbase as 1035 mm. So it is possible it's an XL. That's a guess though looking at the handbook as there is no scale on the dimension drawing. Miles used to sell a lot to the EU and they have some very tall riders.

Not sure why Miles measures to the handlebars rather than headset. Something to do with knee clearance maybe?

Curiosity got the better of me and so I went to look at it - It is bigger than the one I had for years but I found I could ride it pretty comfortably (I'm about 5ft 6 on a good day but I guess I have relatively long legs). Seat is well forward but with short cranks it will be spot on.
It is in very good condition. Believed to be on the original tyres!
