Following its amazing award success through 2011, *The Shibden Mill Inn* Yorkshire’s Favourite Pub, has completed an impressive phase of development work ahead of the New Year.
A considerable sum has been spent by owner, Simon Heaton, sensitively adding to the original character of the delightful 17th Century building. Most impressive of all are the new link corridor from the inn’s 4 Star bedrooms to the bar, which now contains a stunning glass feature wine display, and the charming stone floor laid in tap room, which is also the ground floor entrance to the upstairs restaurant – itself set for redecoration next year.
Commenting, Simon Heaton says: _”The work has taken a great deal of time and money, but we are very pleased with what has been achieved. Along with the more noticeable additions, the bar has been redecorated and new soft furnishings and tables added; the staircase leading to the upstairs restaurant has been opened up and we have introduced new lighting as well. Next year we will be refurbishing all eleven bedrooms and continuing with our work outside, where we have landscaped and planted a number of trees this year.”_
