The Roebuck Inn in Mobberley has been chosen by Alistair Sawday as his ‘Favourite Newcomer’ for 2017 within his prestigious Sawday’s Pubs & Inns Guide of England & Wales just as the Roebuck Inn celebrates being open a year.
From the exterior, you’d expect low beams and hunting scenes. What you get is a funky French bistro with mismatched old furniture, Formica tables, paint-peeling shutters, candles on the tables and quirky, colourful decor. Read full review here
Tonight at a glittering dinner in Manchester the Roebuck Inn scooped the Best Premium Casual Restaurant in South Manchester! This is fantastic recognition of the work that has gone in to bringing the Roebuck Inn back to life after a three year closure!
Charlie our Bistro manager collected the award supported by Jake (who helped open the Roebuck Inn back in May last year) and Barry from the Bulls Head as well as Simon from the Church Inn. All the Mobberley pubs were up for different awards but it was the Roebuck Inns turn this year beating some very worthy finalists! Simon said he was very proud of Charlie who started as an Assistant Manager with Simon and helped the Church Inn win Best Pub at the same awards in 2015!
Well done to all the Mobberley businesses and a very special well done to Charlie and the Roebuck Inn team who deserve this great recognition!
Winner the ‘Eat, Sleep and Drink Awards’ Best Premium Casual Dining Restaurant in South Manchester/Cheshire 2017
“Im not sure its possible to get more ‘country pub’ than this. Mobberley in Cheshire seems to have ‘rustic’ and ‘quintessentially english’ completely wrapped up!’
The Flame and I used up a days holiday just before Christmas. A little scoot round Knutsford for last minute presents saw us heading out a couple of miles to The Roebuck Inn in Mobberley for a lazy lunch. It has been restored to an astonishing level of glory by the Cheshire Cat Pubs and Bars. Apparently they have done the same to several others including its super neighbour The Bulls Head and the A49’s The Cholmondeley Arms. You could say they are a sort of Alan Titchmarsh of pubs, transforming weedy patches of backyard into lush, vibrant plumage!
John Lewis and Jo Malone chose the Roebuck Inn and its drinks experts George and Jake (Jake works at our Church Inn) to mix drinks to match Jo Malone fragrances and styles. Guests enjoyed tasting the drinks mixed up by the team bringing herbaceous notes to great spirits.
The Roebuck Inn via its unique drinks list celebrates the cultivation of grain, grapes, herbs, honey, nuts and many other natural ingredients in the making of drinks…this celebration was recognised by Jo Malone and its commitment to natural ingredients used in it’s products. A great experience for all.
