Overview

Offering rustic boutique bedrooms and an intimate neighbourhood bistro, the 18th century Roebuck Inn boasts a stylish interior with a big dose of quirk. Expect a totally relaxed and informal atmosphere in the bistro, which features a red and black tiled floor, stripped brick walls, old French shutters, leather banquettes, a retro wood-burning stove and an eclectic mix of café-style tables. Menus brim with Mediterranean inspired dishes and there's excellent accommodation in the form of six very special bedrooms.

Outdoors, walk through the rustic and quirky 'potting shed' to reach a stunning outdoor space. Follow the trailing jasmine along the pergola that leads you to the upper decked terrace, replete with cool lighting, sleeper flowerbeds and a big brazier which adds heat, light and atmosphere on summer evenings. The lower terraces sport colourful French bistro tables, rustic benches, posh cream brollies and a fragrant herb bed.

Quiet romance
With rooms which have the wow factor and an intimate bistro downstairs, this French themed inn is a great place to enjoy a romantic weekend for two.

Rooms

Named after different grape varieties, the six hugely individual bedrooms offer a real wow factor and a feast for the imagination. They boast charm, character and quirky detail, and will make you smile throughout your stay. You won't want to leave, especially if you have one of the rooms with an open fire or wood-burning stove.

Super comfortable matresses top antique French beds and there's exposed brick, polished wood floors, old antique French radiators, distressed shutters on the walls, huge gilt mirrors, leather armchairs, an eclectic assortment of lamps and painted furnishings and stunning bathrooms. Bobal, Pecorino, Picpoul and Malbec have freestanding baths, all have double sinks and Orla Kiely lotions.

Restaurant & bar

In keeping with the French café and bistro atmosphere, the short lunch and dinner menus have a distinct Mediterranean flavour with classic French and Italian dishes at each course. With small and middle plate options alongside lunchtime filled flatbreads and evening stone-baked pizzas, the menu encourages a relaxed dining experience. Order a couple of small plates to accompany a glass of Picpoul or indulge in three courses. Expect exciting, inventive and delicious dishes aplenty.

The small bar consists of a retro bistro-style cabinet chock-full of brandies, liqueurs and ports and French café-style shelving behind that groan with glasses and spirits. Three handpumps dispense top ales brewed for the Inn by local Cheshire breweries, Buck Bitter from Weetwood Brewery and Deer Beer from Dunham Massey Brewery.
Things to do

An hour's drive away but definitely wortht the trip, garden enthusiasts should head to Cholmondeley Castle - a delightful early nineteenth century Gothic castle with turrets and battlements and beautiful gardens. There are fifty acres of stunning ornamental gardens and 670 acres of historic parkland to explore - those hoping to get a glimpse inside the castle need to arrange a visit in advance.

For a dose of culture, head to beautifully designed, half-timbered Tudor manor house Little Moreton Hall. A National Trust guide describes Little Moreton Hall as being 'straight from a fairy story, a gingerbread house', and with its fascinating manicured knot garden, we completely agree.
