A stabbing good time!

Say a wrong word to the landlady and she might just stab you like she did her husband, plastic glasses would help to stop temptation that she might use a glass one as a lethal weapon apart from that the beer is drinkable if you are in a desert.

In need of a helping hand.

Went here recently for a few beers and feel like I had three heads. It’s certainly one of those establishments where you are not welcomed by the regulars which is sad given the fact that the pub is in desperate need for some money to be spent on it. There is a kiddies play area outside which is an accident waiting to happen. The whole area needs sprucing up not to mention the play frame is inadequately secures to the ground and almost trips over whilst the children are using the swings. The kids are able to get under the decking due to missing planks and I’m not sure if the tyres at the bottom are have been dumped or are there for the kiddies entertainment. The pub overall is in a fantastic location and with some imagination could be hit and become the place to be.

Went to silkstone with my boyfriend on the 5th november around 19:30-20:00, we both had a triple chicken feast. When the food came out our chicken was cold, i ate half the food and wasnt impressed, my boyfriend ant most of it and wasnt impressed either. We didnt reseve a checkback. Staff did not look interested in being there. W
hen we waited for our plates to be cleared they were staff that walked staight passed atleast 4 times. And a memeber of staff came to our table said she would clear it. After waiting atleast 40 minutes for our plates to be cleared. Not impressed at all wouldnt advise this place to any of my friends and family

people keep reviewing the wetherspoons Silkstone, this is not it ! This is Park rd, 2 miles away.
I've not been to this pub for a few years but it's a popular drinking pub with a good outside area with kids playground

Just your usual Wetherspoons
Sep 2017 • Friends
Went here one Sunday afternoon for lunch with a friend. Nothing different to your usual Wetherspoons. Ordered the soup, which was fine, although my friend ordered the lamb shank which was cold. Once the staff had been informed they asked whether we wanted the same one reheating or another one cooking from fresh. Went with the latter. Second one was better.

Not happy customer

I would have to start that we have used JD Wetherspoons in our travels all over the country for many years and have always found them to be excellent value and good service. When the occasional mistake has been made with the order it has always been sorted out in a courteous and efficient manner.

My wife ordered 2 breakfasts at this pub and an additional side order of extra bacon. The not friendly barmaid took the order. I was present at the bar wife my wife and clearly heard the order being made.

When the order arrived no extra bacon.

No problem I thought, I went to the bar to let staff know and the young lady concerned denied that my wife had asked for extra bacon! I certainly did not expect an argument with her but she seemed intent on totally denying the fact that my wife had made the order in the first place! This would normally have been easily resolved with a "no problem will get it now" however I felt very annoyed that she continued to deny the order had taken place and effectively was calling me a liar.

The manager came over and immediately took her side, she looked at the computer it would seem the barlady had not put the bacon order on. Again no problem but I was still being told that my wife had not placed the bacon order in the first place. The manager said "what you ordered is on here"

In the meantime my wifes plate was taken away and then returned - a sausage taken off it and extra bacon rasher placed on it!
My complaint was the rude manner I was dealt with and as a result I was very annoyed, so much so that I could not eat my breakfast.
I complained formally to the lady manager who stated "Im sorry if you feel that way" but it was very insincere apology to say the least.
Several customers near our table had heard what had happened and stated that the barmaid concerned had a reputation for rudeness and one lady said she had been previously ignored by her at the bar when it was her turn and she served one of the regular drinkers instead when she tried to remonstrate the barlady walked away and ignored her!
Bad form and as I have said not used to being treated as a lair, this may appear to be a small matter, it was at first and normally could have been dealt with in seconds, it was just i was not treated with any respect whatsoever infact was left angry and very dissatisfied.
Will be writing a letter to Weatherspoons.

A proper pub
Nov 2016 • Couples
If you want fancy drinks, fancy decoration and fancy service then this is not for you. If you want a proper pub with character, friendly service with a typical Barnsley welcome and a place that is not pretentious in any way you'll love it. The pub dog may well also come to say hello and take an interest in your crisps. How pubs used to be and still should be. Liked it a lot.
