PUB GUIDE VOTES ROEBUCK INN AS FAVOURITE NEWCOMER

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.

The Roebuck Inn, located in the picturesque village of Mobberley, re-opened in May last year after a period of significant restoration work that saw the once famous Grade II listed Inn wonderfully restored into a ‘rustic country inn’ with six boutique bedrooms and a village bar and bistro with tiered gardens and terraces.

Mary Mclaughlin, co-owner of Cheshire Cat Pubs & Bars who own the Roebuck Inn, comments; “The Roebuck Inn has been an instant hit with all those that have visited it. We love the Alistair Sawday’s guide and to be voted as Favourite Newcomer means so much to us and the Roebuck Inn team.

Our collection of pubs and inns each have their own distinct character and feel. With the Roebuck, we have tried to offer something a little different for our guests to enjoy with classic bistro food and really sumptuous rooms.”

The judges were impressed with the fantastic atmosphere created at the Roebuck coupled with a creative drinks list, tasty food and beautiful rooms. This major refurbishment has created a stylish, welcoming and relaxing space, with the interior finishes sympathetic to the rural charm of the grade II listed building.

Tim Bird and Mary McLaughlin operate seven country pubs, five in Cheshire, one in Dorset and one in Staffordshire and have won numerous awards for restoring pubs of great heritage and character. Their award portfolio includes Publican Award for ‘Best Food Act’ in the UK 2017 and ‘Best Pub Group’ from the Good Pub Guide 2017 and their Cholmondeley Arms, on Lord Cholmondeley’s estate, has just been chosen as the Best Pub in Cheshire by Pub and Bar Magazine.

March marked the 4th Cheshire Cat Food Competition.

The task was to be creative with Sandwiches and specials for our lunch menus.


First up was the Fitzherbert Arms who made the most delicious wild garlic soup! Using locally picked wild garlic with mint and homemade parsnip crisps. Next up was the Cholmondeley Arms, who presented a delicious vegetarian sandwich option of Avocado, minted goat’s cheese and beetroot on toasted sourdough with a soft boiled egg and a homemade duck pastrami, mozzarella and peach pickle sandwich.

The Three Greyhounds made a beautiful Ham Hock and apple, with a fried duck egg on granary toast and a cup of Spiced Sweet Potato soup.
The Bulls’ Head made a tasty, and delicious super food soup and a British pastrami and pickle sandwich.

The Church Inn had created a game consommé and came up with the idea of the Cheshire Cat Rarebit. The idea of a bar nibble of rarebit on toast with a half of local ale served at the bar throughout the day.

The Roebuck wow’d with their homemade focaccia, an open mackerel and beetroot sandwich and a toasted ciabatta with Artichoke, smoked mozzarella and pistachio pesto.

All six teams came up with some fantastic ideas. Their imaginative elements will be used on our menus in the future! It was a very close call but the winners for the second time running were The Cholmondeley Arms! Watch this space for new additions to our lunch menus very soon!
