Sawday’s Pub Awards

Six months ago, we were gearing up to announce the second Telegraph Pub of the Year, The Cartford Inn in Lancashire. Then… well, you know what happened. Some pubs pivoted to take-away, some turned into social enterprises, some simply had to close their doors. The industry is still on a knife-edge, and is likely to remain so for some time. But however they’ve got through the pandemic, right now pubs deserve our support more than ever.

Cheshire Life Luncheon – Roebuck Inn, Mobberley

With the news filled with stories of a declining pub industry, it’s easy to think none are thriving. It is not the case in Mobberley where the village supports a clutch of brilliant inns. What is even more remarkable is they are all owned by Mary McLaughlin and Tim Bird, the super talented couple behind the Cheshire Cat Group and owners of a stable of pubs across our county.

Already at the helm of The Bull’s Head and The Church Green Inn, Tim and Mary’s efforts were pulling in diners in their droves. And when the grade II listed Roebuck Inn came up for sale, it was too much to resist. Click here to read more

‘Knits’ford Ladies knit tea cosies for charity.

Every week we are delighted to welcome the ‘Knitsford’ Ladies Knitting club at the Roebuck Inn for brunch, coffee, teas and two hours of knitting and chatter.

Back in October they were set a challenge by our owner Tim. To knit a festive tea cosy that could be used at the Bulls Head, our sister pub across the lane. Late in December Steph from the Bulls Head and Megan from the Roebuck Inn judged the six that were put forward for the competition.

As you will see all the tea cosies were wonderful. It was very hard indeed to pick a winner. The effort that had been put in to each tea cosy was worthy of a prize. £50 of Roebuck Inn vouchers in the end went to the ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Roebuck!’

Thank you to all the ladies that took part and £60 was raised for the Christie Hospital in Macclesfield.

Here’s to Easter!!!

The Roebuck Inn reviewed in The Guardian

A Grade II-listed building in the village of Mobberley dating back to 1708, the Roebuck was brought back to life in 2016 after a long closure. It’s a welcoming bistro-cum-classic old English inn, serving an interesting mix of dishes from stone-baked pizza to sharing platters, or mains of rotisserie chicken and tempura monkfish – and the Sunday roasts are top-notch, all with roasted duck fat potatoes.
