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.
