Award-winning food in renovated corn mill

AA Pick of the Pubs

Restaurant menu

The Shibden Valley used to be an important wool production area, the waters of Red Beck powering this 17th-century former spinning mill until the industry collapsed in the late 1800s. Now it’s a charming inn with open fires, oak beams, small windows and heavy tiles, happily enjoying a more civilised existence below overhanging trees in a wooded glen that makes Halifax just down the road seem a thousand miles away. The beer garden is extremely popular, not least with real ale fans: a brew called Shibden Mill, made especially for the inn, sits alongside the ever-reliable Black Sheep and three guest ales. With two AA Rosettes, the restaurant attracts those who enjoy excellent food prepared from trusted local growers and suppliers, and a seasonal menu which combines newly conceived dishes with old favourites. The Shibden’s focus is on customer enjoyment and the menu leaves no room for disappointment. Gourmet dinners can be arranged – an ideal opportunity to book one of the inn’s luxury bedrooms.
