Gastro Pub
Having always been at the heart of Valley life, the 17th century Shibden Mill Inn was originally a corn and spinning mill, before being converted into a country pub in 1890.

Today’s visitors are welcomed with warm hospitality to enjoy first class dining against an inviting backdrop of open fires, low beamed ceilings and a cosy bar. Eleven individually styled bedrooms make comfortable and luxurious retreats, epitomising boutique country style and featuring lots of thoughtful touches.

And if you can drag yourself away from the Inn, there are wonderful walks from the doorstep and world class attractions within easy reach. For a spot of retail therapy or a cultural fix, Halifax is a 10-minute drive and Leeds is just 30 minutes away.

The roast dinners were nice - stingy pie portions and mash though

Absolutely love this place. The breakfast is like no other and the value for money is excellent.
Staff are friendly and helpful and nothing is ever too much to ask. Can't wait until social distancing is lifted so we can return.

Superb food as always and great service. Every mouthful of food was a real experience and the combination of flavors worked perfectly. We enjoyed dinner on Friday so much we went back for a delicious Sunday lunch. So lucky to be near to such a great place!

Visited for breakfast and the Food was excellent but service lacking massively. We waited 20+ minutes to order despite clearly being ready. We ordered hot drinks with our order and had to ask for them as they’d been forgotten and we only received them at the end of our breakfast. No fresh glasses, bowls plates for the cold cereals, juices etc. Had to ask to be supplied with what should have already been there. Total lack of interest from staff- we weren’t asked if we needed anything and weren’t checked on at all.

We had high expectations for this meal following recommendations from friends and reviews. The pudding was the best bit however the wine and steaks were overpriced for their average flavour. It was a "nice meal" however we were hoping for an "excellent meal" as we were celebrating.

Absolutely wonderful evening. Fantastic food with great service. No rushing just a lovely ambience in the dining room, (as well as the pub) not too noisy not too quiet and very polite waiting on staff. Don’t waste time reading this - Just GO! - we will be again soon. Thank you

Average Sunday lunch that was relatively expensive. Was not given the option to sit downstairs and so was sat upstairs with screaming children and poor atmosphere. No gluten free Yorkshire puddings which is poor. Overall, very unimpressed.

Lovely as ever, cosy and quiet. Food very good, excellent fish and chips. Only drawback - the vegan starter was way too salty. Otherwise a lovely lunch. ❤️

An excellent Sunday lunch - the best Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes I have ever eaten in a restaurant. We were there for a family birthday, and we were not disappointed in any way. The "nibbles" were absolutely delicious, and the roast pork I had was moist and succulent. The others said their roast beef was perfect. Desserts were small, but just enough after such a good main course. We will definitely be back!

Excellent food, good choice to suit all tastes. Service friendly and efficient without being over-zealous. Felt that the staff knew their way around both the menu and the wine list. Good value considering the quality of the food.

A lovely authentic period inn. Polite, helpful staff. Good menu choice and good value for money. The Sunday roasts, we had beef and pork were excellent quality.
The pork was exceptional, however the beef lacked a wow factor. All in all a lovely experience and somewhere that appeals to all ages.

Lovely setting by the river. Would recommend sitting in the main room with the fire in the winter months as can be a bit drafty by the entrance door.
Cocktails and mulled gin was very good, as were the puffed cod skins.
We had lunch and found that we should have ordered greens to accompany the pie and beef. These are quite heavy dishes.
We found the pumpkin gnocchi a bit solid with not a lot of flavour but nicely presented.

Overal a lovely place but don’t sit by the drafty entrance in the winter.

Lovely, cosy Inn with a welcoming fire blazing and a nice atmosphere, despite it being a quiet, early January Tuesday lunchtime. Friendly and efficient service and delicious food. Will definitely return at any time of year.

Very pleasant meal, obviously on the day we picked the pub was very busy which slowed things down at times. Family visiting from Norfolk were very impressed, we've been before and would certainly recommend it for 'special' meals.
