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.

All the Mobberley pubs were up for different awards but it was the Roebuck Inns turn this year beating some very worthy finalists!

Although Roebuck dates back to 1708 it has been restored and styled with café tables, red leather sofas and candles

Nothing is likely to warm you against the winter chill like a splash of Mediterranean, found deep in Cheshire.

Serving sunshine flavours and local craft beers, ciders and an extensive wine list, this eclectic gem redefines rustic.

CHESHIRE CAT PUBS AND BARS NAMED AS BEST PUB GROUP IN THE UK / CHESHIRE CAT IS CREAM OF THE CROP

0D9B7101-EditWebsizeCheshire Cat Pub and Bars, has been named as ‘Pub Group of the Year 2016/17’ by the prestigious Good Pub Guide.  The award follows a string of successes for the company over the year including being chosen as the Best Drinks Act in the UK at the Publican Awards in London.

The Good Pub Guide is the number one selling guide book for pubs in the UK.  This award is given from the guide to pub groups that are first rate in every way and run by people who really care about both their pubs and their customers.   The 2017 Good Pub Guide will feature over 5,000 pubs demonstrating just how stiff the competition is.

Owner Tim Bird comments: “This is a true accolade and we are very, very proud indeed. This award will mean the world to our entire team and our customers, as it recognises our teams huge efforts in helping us run wonderfully individual pubs well. It also recognises our collective efforts in rescuing pubs that were previously closed down or lost causes. Our pubs and Inns now shine brightly for our many loyal customers to enjoy for many years to come”.

The pub group was chosen by Fiona Stapeley, editor of the Good Pub Guide, and were marked on a range of criteria from the quality of service to product range, aesthetic design and the pub’s hospitality.

“The pubs have a great deal of individuality both in their décor, their choice of drinks, their food and their atmosphere,” says Fiona. “These pubs have consistently good feedback from all our readers. As I edit the book it becomes obvious which group of pubs really stand out head and shoulders above the others. Of course competition is stiff, but this year it was a straight-forward choice for me.”

 

Cheshire Cats Pubs & Bars is owned and operated by Tim Bird and Mary McLaughlin, who have a collection of award winning pubs across Cheshire, Staffordshire and Dorset.  Earlier this year the group were voted the Best Drinks Act in the UK at the prestigious Publican Awards ceremony in London.  Their Church Inn won the coveted award of ‘UK’s Best Pub’ this summer, as well as their Fitzherbert Arms in Staffordshire scooping Sawday’s ‘Best Newcomer’.
