Darren Parkinson is the Head Chef of Shibden Mill Inn, just outside Halifax, and he should be really proud of the breakfast (and all the other meals) he and his team produce. First class. Actually the best I have ever had (and I've had a few breakfasts in my time). Not perfect - the coffee and toast could be improved - but Shibden Mill Inn's breakfast sets a standard few come close to.
