Discover Inn Places, a handpicked collection of the best pubs with rooms in England and Wales, curated by industry expert David Hancock.
Not so long ago the thought of staying overnight in a pub would conjure up vivid images of cheaply furnished bedrooms, the smell of stale beer and bathrooms that had seen better days. How things have changed. Now you can stay in luxurious rooms, full of home-from-home comforts, where children and dogs are welcomed too.
Recognising this growing trend of pubs with smart rooms and high quality food and drink, has inspired industry expert, David Hancock to create InnPlaces.co.uk, a niche website that showcases a carefully curated collection of England and Wales’s most stylish pubs with rooms.
David (who previously edited Sawday Pubs & Inns and AA Room at the Inn) says: ‘I handpicked my personal favourites to launch www.InnPlaces.co.uk, to ensure customers can find the best inns and pubs with rooms that England and Wales has to offer. Some are posh with boutique-style rooms while others ooze tradition and rustic country house charm.
‘We look for rooms with a ‘wow’ factor that will draw guests back time and again, but mostly for a winning combination of wonderful food, real ales and wine, comfortable bedrooms, and a genuine welcome from hands-on owners. Also important are inventive menus that brim with local produce, enthusiastic staff and excellent housekeeping’
However, Inn Places is so much more than just a collection of fabulous inns. Delve deeper into the website and alongside information on places to visit, local walks and independent shopping, you’ll find fascinating food trails that will give you a real flavour of the area you are visiting. Each food trail showcases local artisan producers, micro-breweries and vineyards offering tours, quality farm shops and delis plus other good pubs and eateries within a 20-mile radius of the inn - everything you need to know to help you craft the perfect break away.
David has singled out two inns in particular in Cheshire, the Cholmondeley Arms at the entrance to Cholmondeley Castle, and the Roebuck Inn in Mobberley. For more information on these inns, visit www.cholmondeleyarms.co.uk and www.innplaces.co.uk/theroebuckinn.

Since restoring the now famous Bulls Head in Mobberley, Tim Bird & Mary McLaughlin in 2014 took on the 18th century Roebuck Inn opposite and have restored it with some serious style and a dose of eccentricity. Two years later the Roebuck Inn opened with boutique bedrooms, an intimate French inspired bistro and a unique décor which alongside the warm, professional staff and chilled music has resulted in a vibrant, fun and informal place. Menus brim with Mediterranean-inspired dishes, there’s an amazing drinks list (lychee martinis, ‘Buck’ bitter and unusual European wines) and if you want to stay over, there are six extravagant, grape themed bedrooms with custom-made beds. One not to be missed!
