Huddersfield based Hinchliffes Farm Shop are celebrating after re-opening the doors to their restaurant The Rusty Bull.
Forced to close due to the lockdown restrictions, the team were able to welcome visitors back for outside dining this week after several months of lockdown.
Known as Britain’s oldest farm shop, the family run team had only recently reopened their brand-new state of the art store and restaurant before the first lockdown after a fire had forced them to trade from a temporary structure whilst the rebuilding took place.
Thankfully the award-winning retailer were able to continue trading throughout and have provided a vital service supporting shoppers and those shielding within the local community. Thanks to the new stores design, socially distanced shopping measures were easily implemented and a new delivery service was also quickly introduced for the local area with the restaurant acting as a mini warehouse for deliveries whilst closed.
Partner and a fourth-generation family member Simon Hirst said: “We’re extremely excited that The Rusty Bull will be opening again with our undercover, outdoor terrace. We’ve missed our lovely, loyal customers very much so it’s with great pleasure that we can now open our doors again and welcome them back.”
“There will be a slightly reduced menu to start with, but our Head Chef Ashley has created some exciting new spring dishes as well as keeping some of our well-loved classics.”
The Rusty Bull’s outside dining area will see locals being able to enjoy a gastro pub inspired meal once again, as well as barista coffees, afternoon teas and drinks from the bar with heating to counteract the unpredictable spring weather and all in accordance with Government guidelines.
