Our Private Dining Room recognised!

 

The George Mallory Private Dining Room here at the Church Inn has been chosen as a finalist in the Hilden Style Awards 2015, in the stylish dining category. We are so delighted to be nominated as a finalist. The room offers a wonderful space with views of St. Wilfrid’s Church and has been enjoyed by many guests since we restored the Church Inn just over two years ago. In this time the Church has been recognised as the UK’s best new pub by the Good Pub Guide. We have been included in the Michelin Restaurant and Pub guides for the first time in the pubs history this year as well as recognition in the Sawdays and AA guides too.

style2In November last year the Church Inn team won the Chairman’s Eat, Sleep and Drink award for best Dining in the South Manchester area.

This latest recognition by Hilden is reward for the brave decision to establish private dining in, what was, part derelict living accommodation. The room now seems like it has always been there. Aptly named after George Mallory, the famous mountaineer from Mobberley, the room can seat 24 for an intimate dinner or 40 for a fork supper.

The judges from Hilden will visit us in the next four weeks to make their decision…so fingers firmly crossed.

Seven Deadly Gins at the Church Inn!!

SEVEN DEADLY GINS AT THE CHURCH INN

SEVEN DEADLY GINS AT THE CHURCH INN

One shouldn’t really be advertising sinning in the same sentence as the Church so we have changed it to ‘Ginning’ and we have seven of them! Charlie our Asst. Manager has embraced all things Gin following a ‘Gin Tasting Class’ held by the Gin Experts from our sister pub the Cholmondeley Arms who boast nearly 250 different gins on the back bar…

Charlie has put together 7 great recipes with different Gins and garnishes for the summer ahead. So when the weekend sunshine arrives come and enjoy a well-made G&T…….. quintessentially English and all that!!

No confessions needed! See you soon….

Church Inn does it again!

MARY AND TIM WITH THE AWARD

MARY AND TIM WITH THE AWARD

We are delighted to announce that our Church Inn pub has won the ‘Chairman’s choice’ Best Dining Pub Award for South Manchester and pipped our very own Bulls Head pub (also in Mobberley)!!

The ‘Eat, Drink, Sleep’ Awards 2015 took place at the Manchester Mercure Piccadilly Hotel and our Bulls Head and Church Inn pubs were up against each other in the same category! Barry our landlord at the Bulls Head was the first to congratulate Simon (our Church Inn landlord) and the team saying “They’ve done a cracking job and I am delighted at least one of us won it!! This will make the Bully team even more determined to beat our ‘little sister pub’ the Church Inn next time round!!”

Simon said “I am really chuffed for the Church team and the customers…it’s been a solid start since opening a year and a half ago…I am very proud and feel a little sorry for Barry but not really!!”

Owners Tim and Mary were there to cheer both their pubs on and what a night for the village of Mobberley with two pubs from the same village up for the award! Tim said “it is always so exciting to be nominated for an award without entering anything and for both our Mobberley pubs to be nominated was a great achievement for all our fantastic people from our pub teams to our loyal and supportive customers and suppliers”

Mary added “we have been in Mobberley now for just over five years with the Bulls Head and have so enjoyed it becoming a proud pub in the village. We took on the Church Inn two years ago when it had closed down and we knew it was going to be hard to create a second special pub in the village… but we are on our way. The teams at both pubs have made this possible with the help of course from our customers. This award is for everyone to celebrate”

The Church Inn, Mobberley: Winter walks & snowball faux pas

It’s a picturesque kind of a pub that serves up good seasonal food. But all is not quite so lovely as would first appear…

Everything looks pretty in the snow. A coating of white turns the world winter wonderland-lovely. And so it was that, driving through the narrow lanes of Knutsford, we came across a pub so prettily dusted with miniature drifts we just had to stop. This was the Church Inn at Mobberley, a historic little boozer just outside Manchester that supplies, if you ask nicely, the map for a four-mile country walk that starts and ends at its doors.

Church Inn recognised!

The-ChurchpoemWe are delighted to announce that our lovely Church Inn in Mobberley has been recognised as the UK’s ‘New Pub of the Year 2014-15’ by the Good Pub Guide!

We re-opened the Church Inn just over a year ago following major restoration and refurbishment works. The Church Inn dates back to at least 1753 and we are proud of its standing in the village of Mobberley. There is plenty of history associated with the pub and this award recognises the efforts of many people.

We have to mention our landlord Simon, Head Chef Lloyd and the team who have endless enthusiasm and passion for the business and try their best at all times. Our customers who have supported the pub so well in its first year since re-opening. Our owners Tim and Mary who, despite owning the Bulls Head also in Mobberley, had the vision and courage to see the opportunity for a differentiated pub style so close to their already award winning Bulls Head and last but by no means least all our wonderful suppliers who have helped us achieve this award.

The award is for all the people associated with the Church Inn to celebrate, enjoy and raise a glass to.

Well done everyone!!!

Laura Trott’s perfect weekend

express_logo

LAURA TROTT became a household name by scooping two gold medals at her first Olympic Games in London in 2012. Here she opens up about her weekends and obsession for EastEnders.

Track and road cyclist Laura Trott OBE began her cycling career at the age of eight.

Laura_CraigforthA four-time world team pursuit champion, she became a household name by scooping two gold medals at her first Olympic Games in London in 2012. More recently, she was crowned women’s 2014 British Cycling Road champion. Laura, 22, will take part in the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow next week. She lives in Stockport with her Olympic gold-winning cyclist boyfriend Jason Kenny.

“I train six days a week and it’s pretty intense, with early starts and late finishes. So when I do have a rest weekend, I like to put my feet up. On Friday nights, Jason will cook. He’s not bad in the kitchen, although more often than not we’ll have his staple pasta and tuna dish. Then we’ll watch EastEnders – I’m obsessed and can’t miss an episode!

“I like to be in bed by 10pm. I get grumpy if I haven’t had a good 10-hour sleep. In an ideal world I’d have a lie-in, but our two dogs never allow us to sleep late. They’re gorgeous little sproodles [a cross between a springer spaniel and a poodle] called Sprolo and Pringle and they’re yapping and full of energy by 8am. So Jason and I will go for a cycle and they’ll run alongside us around the country lanes near where we live.

“In the afternoon, we’ll go over to Jason’s parents’ house. They’ll make us bacon sandwiches for lunch and we’ll stay for the whole afternoon. His dad makes a mean curry for dinner too and we’ll watch TV. I love the Outnumbered box set, I find it hilarious.

“Sunday is a lazy day. We’ll spend most of the morning in our pyjamas, before taking the dogs for a walk and then head over to our favourite pub, The Church Inn, Mobberley, for a roast lunch. Jason loves motor racing, so if there’s a Grand Prix on TV we have to be back in time to watch it. In the evening, we’ll relax with a film, but there are always arguments. Jason loves action films – I’d rather watch a romantic comedy. Then it’s off to bed, as we’ll both be up at the crack of dawn for training.

“I’ve a lot on at the moment, with the Commonwealth Games, and I’m taking part in the Prudential RideLondon event in August, too.”
