The Shibden Mill Inn has won the HX3 heat in our Pub of the Year 2013, and nominations are in for heats four and five.

The pub will join the Railway and the Winterburn in the Grand Final after beating last year’s heat three winner, the Bottomley’s Arms, in this year’s HX3 vote.

Simon Heaton, Shibden Mill Inn owner, said: “We’re absolutely delighted, it’s fantastic.

“It’s a lovely old building with a good atmosphere. We get a lot of comments on the friendliness of the place and we get a good mix of people.

“We’ve been here 15 years now and done a lot of work to it so t would mean a lot if we won.”

You can now choose your favourite pub from the five nominations for the HX4 and HX5 areas using the voting form attached.

All votes must be sent to Love Your Local nomination, Halifax Courier, Promotions Department, King Cross Street, Halifax, HX1 2SF.
