Foodie Treble achieved as we get ready for opening (again!)

We are proud to announce we have achieved a ‘Foodie Treble’! In December just before ‘lockdown 3’ the Cholmondeley Arms was chosen by the Good Pub Guide as ‘County Dining Pub of the Year 2021’! This was a really fantastic achievement for the Cholmondeley Arms kitchen team led by Andy. It is the third time the ‘Chum’ has won this award 1996 and 2001 and now 20 years later we’ve achieved the honour again!

In January 2021 the Church Inn was chosen by Michelin for their Pub and Good Food Guides with a Michelin Plate for 2021. This is the sixth year in a row that the Church Inn has collected this distinction and remains the only pub in Cheshire with a Michelin Plate. Richard and his team, like the Cholmondeley Arms team, have worked through a difficult year with great commitment and culinary excellence. We are very proud of this consistent performance.

Now in March 2021 the Roebuck Inn has been chosen in the Estrella Damm Top 100 Gastro Pubs 2021. The Roebuck is the highest ranking Cheshire pub and this award underlines an amazing year, where the Roebuck Inn has remained open through every lock down and made a great name for itself as a ‘Pub Hub’, serving the community with ‘Just Heat’ Meals and great Fish and Chips every Thursday and Friday. Andy and his team have maintained a very high standard of cooking during lockdowns and of course when open too. This award comes on the back of Head Chef Andy’s nomination at this year’s Pub industry ‘Oscars’, for the ‘Outstanding Industry Contribution Award’ recognising Andy’s lockdown efforts at the Roebuck Inn Pub Hub. The Hub Team have already been presented in February 2021 with a ‘Covid Community Hero Award by our MP Esther McVey. Great recognition for a year of great effort keeping the hub open for our local community!

We are very proud of all the teams, for their amazing achievements over the last few months of very challenging times for us all.

Well done everyone! Good luck Andy!

Thank you to our ‘Festive Walkers!’

The annual ‘Church Inn Festive Ramble for Charity’, took place at 2pm on Saturday 28th December. Thankfully the weather was dry, clear and relatively mild, but there was some serious mud to contend with! We were led by Brian, a true rambler, who had researched the walk we undertook on our behalf. Tim our owner also took part to ensure all made it safely through a challenging (only because of the mud) but enjoyable walk.

Big thanks to Brian, it was a really good 3 miles of fun. A massive thank you to all that took part for the charity. We had around 20 walkers, with two babies strapped safely to parents and 7 pet dogs on leads. Everyone made it and within 1 hour and 40 minutes everyone was back safely at the Church Inn for a mulled wine on the house.

On the day we raised in excess of £150 for the new Christie’s Hospital in Macclesfield. Once again thank you to all. It was lovely to catch up with everyone!

See you next year! When we will be doing the walk on the Bank Holiday (Boxing Day) on Monday 28th December 2020. See you all there.

Gin Tasting

Gin tasting at the Church Inn!

We are now offering Gin Tasting at the Church Inn. After many years of Gin at our Cholmondeley Arms pub on Lord Cholmondeley’s estate we are bringing their knowledge and experience to the Church Inn. The Cholmondeley Arms offers a choice of over 400 gins from around the world and have been famous for their amazing collection for nearly eight years now.

With the Gin renaissance showing no signs of decline and with Mobberley’s own Big Hill Distillery now operative it is timely for us to bring the ‘love of gin’ to Mobberley and the Church Inn. So, if you have a group of friends and want to learn more about England’s favourite spirit then book your tasting with us.
