Real Ale Ray left this review about The Silkstone Inn (JD Wetherspoon)

A lot busier than the Joseph Branah Lloyds just a five minute walk down the road. This was the better out of the two in my opinion, a much brighter interior and more stylish with turquoise feature wallpaper inside the booths along the facing wall. There was also a sculpture of a miner's lift shaft featured on the left of the entrance, plus a central gas flame fire along with canopy. Eight handpumps along the bar with six in use, with another poor line up, similar to the Lloyds. The best choice on the day was a Hammertown Pale Ale.

The Silkstone Inn isn't the largest of Spoons and is basically a square room with better than average fixtures and fittings.
There are just eight hand pumps which had the JDW Trio Of Doom, Milestone Black Pearl & Cathedral Gold, Little Critters Blonde Bear, Rooster's Distant Sun and Ossett Yorkshire Blonde. I went for the Yorkshire Blonde (£2.35) which was in good nick.
This seemed a decent enough Spoons to me. My only gripe with it was that I was served the beer in a stupid dimple jug without being asked for a preference. It's GBG 2017 listed.

The Silkstone is a Wetherspoons that is situated on a pedestrianised street.
Once inside there is a decent sised square shaped room that is divided into different areas by bookcases,the bar is on the right side,the floor is part carpeted and bare boarded,there is a large gas fire which is almost in the middle of the room and it was kicking out some heat.
The seating is normal tables and chairs.
I had a drink of Springhead Rudolphs Ruin,which was a decent drink,the other real ales noted were Milestone Comet,Milestone Lions Pride,there were other guest beers i failed to note.
The pub was packed just before 11am with a good mix of drinkers and diners.
I quite liked this Wetherspoons.
