We’re delighted to announce that our Great Inn, Shibden Mill Inn, Halifax has won Les Routiers ‘Inn of the Year’ award for 2015. . It is the second time in four years that the 350 year old AA 5 Star, 2 Rosette inn, owned by Great Inns of Britain chair, Simon Heaton, has been awarded the title.
“We’re really delighted to have won back the crown of Les Routiers Inn of the Year for 2015. It’s a prestigious title, with a growing number of really high quality contenders each year. We’ve put a huge amount of hard work and dedication into the inn over the last 12 months, and since achieving AA 5 star inn status in July 2014, the inn moves from strength to strength.”
“We’re particularly proud of our menu, which makes great use of locally sourced produce and the freshest seasonal ingredients, which are increasingly being harvested from our own vegetable and herb garden here at the inn. Our eleven guest rooms are as unique as they are cosy, having recently undergone an extensive round of redesign and refurbishment, a perfect place to retreat to after an evening of great food by the roaring fire.”
The historic property is rich with character and rustic charm and a firm favourite with locals and food-lovers across the region. An ongoing investment and a commitment to quality ensures Shibden Mill presents a true taste of the region and serves-up fabulous Yorkshire hospitality to all who choose to relax under the beamed ceiling of the bar, enjoy a little al fresco dining alongside the flowing water of Red Beck or relax and slumber in one of the inn’s eleven individually-styled, luxury guest rooms.
Launching at the end of this month and new for 2015 is the Shibden Mill Grill Room. Situated upstairs, the newly styled Grill Room presents forty covers and a fine selection of quality Yorkshire meats, fish and seafood, serving connoisseur wines by both the glass and bottle. Produce of the Shibden Valley, the surrounding area and region is the focus of the Grill Room, which is set to be an absolute treat for Shibden diners.
Speaking on behalf of Les Routiers, Tina Griffiths said: “The Annual Awards highlight establishments that consistently meet and exceed our membership standards. For 2015 competition has been fierce with some extremely strong contenders; however Shibden Mill Inn is a very deserved winner. We extend our warmest congratulations and commend Simon and his team for being ‘best in their class’!”
