The Sunday Roast Review : The Roebuck Inn
The quintessentially British Sunday Roast is one of our most popular dishes, so we sent the team out to sample some of the best in the region
4 for Sunday lunch in the heart of Mobberley, Cheshire
The Roebuck is an award-winning inn situated in the leafy village of Mobberley. It is a Grade II listed building dating back to 1708 and is the oldest inn in the village. In 2016 the Roebuck re-opened its doors after a lengthy closure. Mary Mclaughlin and Tim Bird acquired it and restored it over 18 months basing their restoration on a ‘petit hotel and bistro’ feel within a traditional old English inn.
We were warmly greeted by Chris, the General Manager and his uber friendly team. We decided upon a sharing platter to start, and we were not disappointed, the Roebuck Bistro Board was a revelation, scrumptious from chickpea fritters and Gruyere croquettes to pork meatballs and tempura cauliflower served with homemade pickles, Bosciola olives, freshly baked bread and infused oils, what’s not to love!
Our Sunday lunch mains continued with this level of satisfaction, hearty helpings of meat and vegetables perfectly cooked and a Yorkshire pudding worthy of the name (and there were three Yorkshiremen at the table that day!). A standout point was that each meat was served with its own dedicated meat gravy, a fabulously tasty touch.
With a wide selection of food and drink, this is a hidden gem tucked away from the hustle and bustle, one not to be missed!
