Multi-award-winning pub in the Cheshire countryside. Winner of countless ‘best pub’ awards, and established in 1708, the latest incarnation of The Roebuck is owned by Cheshire Cat Pubs. The Grade II listed building is now a bonafide ‘rustic country inn’ with six bedrooms, a bar, a bistro and a tiered beer garden. Described as ‘classic bistro food’ the menu covers all your pub essentials from fresh, stone-baked pizzas to sharing boards (the ‘fromagerie board’ for examples include Taleggio, Comte, Brie and gorgonzola – there’s no standing on ceremony here), via small plates (crab mayo and crushed avocado with chilli, for example, crispy confit duck rolls and… Thai spiced chicken wings). Mains include lasagne, an updated chicken in the basket (thyme roast chicken with frites and madeira sauce) and a curried lamb shank in balti sauce. People pleasing puds take in pancakes and crème caramel and there’s an excellent wine list too, packed with the likes of Spanish Bobal. Quirky yet homely decor comes as standard at this lovely place to eat.
