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.
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
The newest member of the seven-strong Cheshire Cats Pubs and Bars group is this French-influenced bistro with rooms. It’s perfect weekend break material, with lashings of character, great food and a beautifully designed garden. Read full review
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.

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
“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!
