The former Three Nuns at Mirfield will re-open its doors this Friday as a Miller and Carter Steakhouse under general manager Helen Willis.

The historic pub turned upmarket restaurant shut down for a two-month complete refurbishment and will now employ 45 staff.

The restaurant opens at noon tomorrow (Friday).

The Nags Head, at Ainley Top has had a £500,000 refurbishment and re-opened last week as part of the Vintage Inns chain.

Its carvery has been cut and six new jobs have been created and it has gone upmarket to differentiate itself from its sister restaurant, the nearby Toby Carvery.

The kitchen has been given a makeover while the impressive ivy that has covered the pubs exterior has been given a much-needed trim.

The loss of the carvery means the pub has been able to add several more dining tables and chairs in the barn area.

Earlier plans to add a further public entrance into that area were ditched as it would have meant three entrances into the pub.

General manager Sam Wilkinson said: “We’re very excited to be opening a new Vintage Inn in Huddersfield. Following the refurbishment the pub looks fantastic and has been given a new lease of life.”

This Sunday afternoon from 2pm at The Commercial and Railway Inn, its Jiving Jeff’s popular afternoon of rock and roll.
