When Pat emailed round and suggested £15 pp bed and breakfast at the Shibden Mill Inn in return for having a 2 course dinner we were a little sceptical as it sounded too good to be true. On Pat and Tony’s recommendation we couldn’t turn this offer down.
The weather was super sunny so with the top down we set off to collect Tess and over to Pat and Tony’s. After a quick progress viewing of the impressive new Priestley House we were soon at the Shibden Mill Inn and we have to say it is a pretty setting. The sun had given us a thirst so we sat outside and enjoyed drinks and nibbles. We have to admit we were apprehensive to see what kind of room you get for £30 a night…………no need to worry as our room was nicely furnished and more than adequate. Tess, Pat and Tony decided to walk to the Stump Cross Inn for a couple of drinks but D and I decided on a cheeky Veuve Cliqcout on the terrace reading poetry. Showers were followed by relaxed drinks in the bar.
Dinner was simply great, starters included, mussels, mackeral, tomato/mozzarella,. The star of the mains had to be the rib of beef which Tony and G enjoyed. Pudding stars were Eton mess and chocolate crunch, both top draw.
A couple of bottles of wine from a reasonable list complimented the meal. Cognacs and coffees in the bar topped off a beautiful day but we could not finish without mentioning breakfast, see it to believe it.
Probably the best value Dinner B&B we’ve had.
