What makes a stay at The Roebuck Inn unique?
The Roebuck Inn is the perfect place to kick back and relax...a 'home from home' with great walks around the Cheshire countryside and a jog too if you want to partake! The Roebuck Inn walk (which can be picked up in the pub) takes you across farmers fields and past the 12th Century St.Wilfird's Church and of course past the award winning Bulls Head and Church Inn the Roebuck's 'sister' pubs. Or you can cosy up by the fire and simply enjoy a bottle of wine and a fromagerie board and watch the world go by....slowly. The rooms offer you rustic charm and comfort and a hot bath after a good country walk is a must.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Knutsford area?
Mobberley has its own Micro-Brewery and the award winning Big Hill Gin Distillery which is situated at the Roebuck Inn's sister pub the Church Inn 800 hundred yards away. Tours and tastings can be arranged. Mobberley's most famous past resident is George Mallory, the famous mountaineer, who lost his life climbing Everest in 1924. His father founded the idyllic Mobberley Cricket ground and was Reverend at the village's 12th Century Church, St. Wilfrid's where there is a stain glassed window featuring George Mallory. The Church Inn has a historic private dining room named after Mallory and features interesting pictures of the famous climber. Further afield you have Knutsford with its charming main street with antique shops and gift shops.
The Roebuck Inn has outside seating 'cafe style' along its old frontage so one can enjoy an aperitif while watching village life pass by or, if seclusion is your thing, then there is seating in the tiered garden and terrace adjacent to the Inn which you can access through the potting shed. The Chef's herbs grow in beds here from tarragon to chocolate mint. Brunch is served every weekend until 12 mid-day and in the summer months it is served in the garden. So one can relax in the mornings without having to rush....all very civilised.
