The Milton Arms

Brewery, Bar, Cafe, Pub/Inn, Restaurant, Private Hire Venue


Situated in the heart of the historic village Elsecar, The Milton Arms has been at the centre of the community for decades. True North Brew Co. took over the family pub in 2018 and bring their experience of running pubs and bars across South Yorkshire to the village. The brewery have renovated the pub but kept the traditional style and atmosphere pubs in the area are famous for. The Milton Arms is where you go to relax, drink and eat good food with family and friends.

As with all their other pubs (The Broadfield and The York) the Milton has been given the same fun quirky detail alongside the traditional features that celebrate the history of the building and give customers something new to catch their eye on each and every visit.

The ‘rooms at the top’ are a series of new dining spaces on the first floor of the pub renovated from the previous owners living space. They take their name from the 1959 film “Room At The Top” where a working class protagonist moves up the social ladder through his romantic encounters. Poster imagery and lobby cards from the film are on display in one of the rooms. The two other rooms are similarly themed with the middle snug dedicated to Barry Hines and Kes – which local people are very proud of and what he has written about the area. There is even a signed photo of the late Bobby Knutt who lived in the village.

All the rooms are available to privately hire for christenings, wedding and celebrations with the team on hand to build your perfect party package.

True North pies are at the heart of the menu at The Milton Arms and there are vegetarian and vegan options available.  The Milton Arms also serves True North ale battered fish and chips, burgers, sandwiches and Sunday roasts.

The pub has a long standing relationship with the Elsecar Heritage centre and True North are looking forward to developing events and offers with the centre. Traders and organisers often hold meetings and luncheons at the pub.
