Bells Steakhouse
The History of The Bells Steakhouse.The "Bells" has very much been at the heart of the Parish of Silkstone through generations. The original building dates back to the very early 1800's and first became a Public House named "The Six Ringers" in the mid 1800's. Early reference to this is made in that in January of 1843 Mr Davies from West Yorkshire lectured at "The Six Ringers Inn" on Trade Unionism and James Wilson was the first to be enrolled.The story of "The Bells" from this early date is told in the theme and style of the extensive yet sympathetic renovations carried out in the creation of "The Bells Steakhouse".William Hayes the Blacksmith to the Clarke family, who owned the local coal mines and resided at Noblethorpe Hall, can be seen pounding his anvil in the carefully recreated forge with his furnace burning brightly fuelled by locally mined Clarke's coal.The six bells from which the original Public House gained its name can be seen peeling gracefully in "The Bell Tower" dining area with the Gargoyles staring mischievously down on our guests."The Waggonway" dining room recounts on its walls the journey, via horse drawn railway tubs, of coal mined in the Silkstone pits to the Barnby Basin at Cawthorne.Local children can be seen enthusiastically collecting their miners lamps before beginning their shift and returning many hours later with weary coal blackened faces."The Belfry" proudly boasts a scale model of the magnificent "Minster of The Moors" with its 80ft tower housing the six bells. The walls are adorned with pictures of the church and it's grounds. Peer through the Gothic windows to view the bells up close.Many more features and artefacts can be seen during your visit. We look forward to welcoming you to "The Bells Experience" ** Over 12’s Dining Policy - Children over the age of 12 are allowed in the main dining area - however younger children and families can be accommodated in our Belfry area (unless booked).

Millers Bar & Restaurant
Low Mill Road
Diners will be received either in the ‘Millers’ Bar (the entrance to which can be found down the driveway leading to the rear of the Brewers Pride within the traditional oak shelter) or directly from within the pub itself. The ‘Millers’ Bar is where you can find a great selection of continental beers (both on draught and by the bottle) and delicious wines;  this is a really cosy bar, perfect for perusing our fine dining a la carte menu prior to ordering and moving up into the beautifully appointed restaurant; situated entirely on the first floor. Alternatively, for those diners who choose to have a pre-dinner drink in the lively atmosphere of our main bar and lounge (where our full range of real ales is available), we will be more than happy to take your order from there and then escort you to your table when it is ready.With plenty of room for over 40 diners, the ‘Millers’ Restaurant has a traditional ‘feel’ with exposed oak roof trusses and stonework, hand-fired bricks and oak sash windows combined with more contemporary furniture, table dressing and lighting making it simply one of the finest places to eat out locally. Part of the restaurant has been converted from the original pub building and has a more ‘private’ feel thereby making it ideal for a larger group celebrating around a single table or couples wanting a more intimate candlelit evening on one of our special ‘themed’ events. Keeping it warm and comfortable will be a traditional cast iron stove set in the original fireplace – what could be better!With the emphasis on fine food, great atmosphere, exemplary service and comfortable surroundings we hope that ‘Millers’ Restaurant will be your first choice when dining out – you’ll certainly receive a very, very warm welcome. We very much hope to see you soon.For reservations, please contact our Restaurant Manager; Vicky Armytage on 01924 262077.‘Millers’ will initially be open on Friday and Saturday evenings only with reservations from 6pm until 10pm and Sunday Lunches 12.30pm until 4.30pm. It will also be available for private functions throughout the week and for celebrations over the weekend by special arrangement.
