The Great Inns of Britain would like to say many congratulations to Shibden Mill Inn who have just been crowned Yorkshire’s Favourite Pub for a second time.
A contest ran every year by Welcome To Yorkshire, the Halifax-based Shibden Mill Inn first won the prestigious title back in 2011 and seven years later, the 11 bedroom property is still every bit as good.
With nearly 20,000 votes cast this year, Shibden Mill Inn beat off competition from 17 other finalists to win the crown of Yorkshire’s Favourite Pub.
Speaking after the triumph, owner Caitlin Heaton said: “It’s just fantastic! We’re delighted! Shibden Mill Inn has been a family business for 20 years and is still going strong with loads of new ideas.
“We just can’t wait for the next 20 years. To have won back in 2011 and to win again 7 years later shows we’ve kept up our consistently high standards. A huge thanks to everyone who voted for us.”
