Going here is not only a place for good food but also, a history lesson about Hebden Bridge and also the mill. There's a water wheel and an Archimedes screw to see. Great place!

We went to Hardcastle Crags and stopped at Gibson Mill Cafe for tea and a Ham Sandwich after a 30 Minute walk, fantastic place tucked away in a wooded valley about 5 Minutes by car from Hebden Bridge.

There are some really moany reviews on here and I'm certainly not going to be adding to that brigade. It's a simple watering hole selling the usual refreshments and it's nothing fancy but it's nice and it's perfectly palatable. The staff are pleasant and helpful....More
