The Roebuck Inn
“A 'petit hotel' pub, with a bar, bistro and pretty tiered garden”
The oldest pub in Mobberley and Grade II listed, The Roebuck has been stylishly restored to the style of a "petit hotel", with a bar, bistro and pretty tiered garden. The food is prepared using fresh, local ingredients and features a smart contemporary menu of bistro classics. Fresh stone-baked pizzas are a hit; or you can go for one of the impressive sharing boards, enough for two or three people. If you’re not one for sharing, something from the small plates selection might appeal - crab, spring onion and parsley cakes with Romesco sauce, maybe, or crushed avocado and fermented chilli with grilled sourdough. Main courses might include tempura monkfish, Thai sweet and sour sauce, and aromatic rice; or grilled lamb chops with roasted red peppers, bulgur wheat, garlic and harissa yogurt and pomegranate. When it comes to beer, they have a couple of local cask ales, ‘Buck’ Bitter from Weetwood, and Dunham Massey Brewery’s Deer Beer, as well as craft English lager, a choice of bottled beers and ciders, and an interesting wine list.

About the area
Nestled between the Welsh hills and Derbyshire Peaks, the Cheshire plains make an ideal location to take things slow and mess around in boats. Cheshire has more than 200 miles (302 km) of man-made waterways, more than any other county in England. The Cheshire Ring is formed from the Rochdale, Ashton, Peak Forest, Macclesfield, Trent and Mersey and Bridgewater canals. This route takes you through a lot of Cheshire, and bits of other counties as well.
While exploring the county’s waterways, covering ground on foot or admiring the typical white plaster and black timber-frame houses, make sure to have a taste of Cheshire’s most famous produce. Although Cheddar has become Britain’s most popular cheese (accounting for over half of the cheese sales in the UK), it was once Cheshire cheese that was in every workman’s pocket back in the 18th century. Its moist, crumbly texture and slightly salty taste mean it goes well with fruit, peppers or tomatoes. As well as the usual white, there are also red and blue veined varieties.
