It’s safe to say that no matter how creative our chefs are, or how carefully they cook their dishes, all their hard work would be for nothing if the ingredients they used weren’t perfect.
Something we’re incredibly passionate about is supporting local businesses and sourcing all our seasonal ingredients – from fish to fruit, milk to meat – from suppliers, who care passionately about the produce they sell. Over the next few months we’ll be championing these suppliers and talking loudly and proudly about what they do.
Now, as antiquated as the idea might seem to some (and this is a vegan talking, so I mean me!) everyone knows that for many, meat and two veg are the staples of any decent dish, right?! Therefore, it’s only fitting that we start with our butcher and our fruit and veg supplier!
Reliable, efficient and passionate about seasonality, Wellocks not only provide all our fruit and veg, but also a number of our dairy items (not our ice cream though, you’ll meet that supplier another day!) As our menu changes every three months to reflect the changing seasons, Wellocks is on hand to support our orders for some obscure ingredients.
W H Frosts
Based in Manchester, we have been ordering our meat from Frosts since day one. Our Sunday lamb is farmed in Wales, our ribeye steaks and Sunday sirloins come from premium British beef, reared and farmed in Cheshire and aged for 45 days. Every single meat item on our menu is free-range (as our chefs feel all meat should be) and Frosts are a huge supporter of this ethos.
With the ingredients in place, it’s then down to the creativity and originality of our talented chefs – and long may their inspiration continue!
Ok so it wasn’t 32 degrees Celsius like last year but it was still a lovely day with probably the best floats for many a year…everyone had a great time and the rain was sporadic but never managed to spoil, what was, a special day at the Bulls Head and Roebuck Inn. In the marquee this year was a great Gin Bar celebrating the arrival of Mobberley’s own Big Hill Distillery soon to arrive at our sister pub the Church Inn! Our new Dog Bar helped our four legged friends feel part of it all!
Thank you to all our loyal customers for supporting the day and our teams for all their hard work!

The top movers and shakers of the UK drinks industry gathered last night in London to hear the results of the Imbibe Personality of the Year Awards 2018.
The nominees were voted for by Imbibe magazine’s readers in record-breaking numbers and the shortlist included the highest calibre of UK on-trade professionals.
Tim Bird, co-founder of Cheshire Cat Pubs & Bars picked up the award for Pub Personality of the Year.
Imbibe editor, Chris Losh, commented: ‘Tim has worked in the industry for over 35 years, and since he’s saved many pubs from closure in that time, it’s safe to say the UK’s pub scene would not have been the same without him.
‘He’s proved himself amazing at running everything from big pub groups to small independents, and, for the last seven years, his own group of country pubs and Inns. This passion for the industry is exactly what Imbibe Magazine is all about’.
Judges for the competition included restaurateur George Bergier, the Connaught Bar’s Ago Perrone, Michelin-starred chef Adam Byatt, Northcote’s Craig Bancroft, Gin Journey’s Leon Dalloway, Beer Belle Annabel Smith, Mixology Group’s Myles Cunliffe and the Imbibe editorial team.
Imbibe launched the Personality of the Year Awards in 2011 and previous winners have included Heston Blumenthal, Ronan Sayburn MS, Thinking Drinkers, Alex Kratena, Christine Parkinson, Xavier Rousset MS, Dee Davies, Lyndon Higginson, Stuart McCluskey, Salvatore Calabrese, Laura Rhys MS, Thomas Decan, the Galvin Brothers and Jake Burger, as well as many other on-trade professionals.
The 2018 awards were presented on Monday 12th February at Mahiki Kensington.
Launched in March 2007, Imbibe magazine has rapidly become the UK’s leading magazine for on-trade drinks professionals working in premium UK establishments. Imbibe is a quarterly magazine, with more than 20,000 drinks buyers and servers in the UK receiving a copy. Copies are available upon request.
