The Roebuck Inn, Mobberley

A True Taste of Cheshire

By Jenny Schippers – 4th November 2020

Bloody Mary Brunch

The Grade II listed Roebuck Inn at Mobberley is only a short drive from the M6 at Knutsford however it is quietly hidden away in the Cheshire countryside, far from the madding crowds. Although small, the village of Mobberley possesses three award-winning pubs all owned by a small Cheshire based hospitality business. The Roebuck Inn, along with the Bulls Head and Church Inn, provide a trio of excellent options to wine and dine whilst visiting the area. Today I was kindly invited to the Roebuck Inn to try the new addition to their menu, the boozy Bloody Mary Brunch served seven days a week 9-11.30am. Alongside the traditional breakfast options, all cooked to perfection using fresh locally-sourced ingredients, the accompanying Bloody Menu cocktail menu provides six spicy yet pallet cleansing cocktails to choose from. I can confirm both the food and drink were delicious as was the exceptionally friendly service.

‘Pub Hub Shop’

Conscious that the Roebuck Inn, along with all other pubs, will be closing for the remainder of November I was also keen to check out their thriving ‘Pub Hub Shop’ that began during the first lockdown and will continue during the second as a way to support the village community. The ‘Pub Hub Shop’ supplies butcher’s sausages, fresh artisan bread, and cheese as well as regional produce to residents alongside a ‘Just Heat’ food delivery service. Wines and ales can also be ordered from the shop and these, along with any meals and produce, can be delivered by the local taxi company within a three-mile radius of the pub for a £3 charge. The ‘Just Heat’ service is available daily and the ‘Pub Hub Shop’ is open five days a week for shopping and collection (check here for opening times). Over the next couple of months, the Roebuck Inn will also be sourcing amazing local products including Alderley Edge Honey, Holistic Earth candles, and Mrs Darlington’s preserves to fill their bespoke handpicked hampers available to purchase in time for Christmas.  Simply by calling the pub, you can discuss your requirements with them to create a truly personalised Cheshire themed gift for loved ones near and far.

‘A Taste of Cheshire’ Staycation

Renovated in 2016 the Roebuck Inn has a French bistro feel to it with shutters at the windows and candle-lit dining rooms. This relaxed Parisian vibe is continued into their six boutique bedrooms, each individually styled with a continental flair reflected in the artwork, furniture, and fittings. With countless countryside walks on the doorstep, a collection of fine National Properties within 20 minutes’ drive, and a truly romantic feel to the interior, it is easy to see why so many couples choose the Roebuck Inn for a Cheshire Staycation. The pub has a ‘Taste of Cheshire’ staycation offer available again when they reopen in December and perfect as a mini-break for any Cheshire foodies. This package includes two nights’ B+B accommodation at the Roebuck Inn, a local ale or gin and tonic on arrival, and two 3-course evening meals during your stay. One at the Roebuck Inn and one over the road at The Church Inn voted ‘Britain’s Best Pub 2019’. Whilst staying at the Roebuck Inn be sure to enjoy the four-mile Roebuck Inn Walk that takes you on a scenic tour of the local countryside, perfect to walk off all that fabulous food!
