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.

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.

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.
