The Shibden Mill Inn


In the depth of the Shibden Valley near Halifax is the 17th century Shibden Mill Inn. This 'secret gem' has an enviably, secluded location opposite Red Beck, the millstream that provided the vital nourishment to the inn’s corn and spinning mill beginnings. AA 5 Star Inn accommodation and AA 2 Rosette restaurant, highlights the invaluable reputation of the inn as one of the best Halifax hotels.

Where is The Shibden Mill Inn located?

Nestled within the fold of the picturesque Shibden Valley in Halifax. Walkers and cyclists can enjoy the scenic routes providing picture-postcard views of West Yorkshire with its lovely Calderdale valley at the doorstep of the Shibden Mill Inn.

What cuisine is on offer at The Shibden Mill Inn?

There's an extensive menu that covers “grills” such as Gloucester Old Spot pork chop with sage mash, shallot sauce, “traditional” dishes including fish pie with herb and cheese crust and red cabbage and “British bites” which might translate as a Round Green Farm venison pie served with red currant compote. Upstairs in the Grill Room at the heart of the menu is a Charcoal Kopa Oven, producing dishes that are rich with flavours of smoke and fire. Charcoal-grilled steaks, fish and seafood are served here every Friday and Saturday evening.

What makes a meal at The Shibden Mill Inn unique?

The fresh, seasonal meals are created with the best locally available ingredients in Yorkshire along with produce from their very own kitchen garden. Dine in the bar area or the Mill Room throughout the seasons and chill out in the patio garden throughout the warmer months.  The Mill is very proud to be the County Dining Pub of the Year for The Great Pub Guide.
