Venue

Bar, bistro and bedrooms in a Grade II listed building which is the oldest inn in Mobberley, dating back to 1708.

Decor and ambience

From the exterior, you’d expect low beams and hunting scenes. What you get is a funky French bistro with mismatched old furniture, Formica tables, paint-peeling shutters, candles on the tables and quirky, colourful decor.

Menu

Small plates, sharing boards of pizza, charcuterie and cheese, then a small but eclectic roster of mains. A starter-sized Toulouse sausage cassoulet (£5.95) was a tasty bowl of punchy little sausages with butter beans in a garlicky tomato sauce. A cheese fondue starter with crusty bread (£5.95) was pleasant, but lacking booziness. A main of bouillabaisse (£14.95) was a tomatoey, spicy broth with a hunk of cod, prawns, mussels and samphire swimming in it, all of which went down well, as did a whopping lamb shank in a curry sauce, with rice, dhal and coriander yoghurt (£16.95). Pud of pillow-soft profiteroles with coffee and whisky cream and chocolate and honey sauce (£5.50) was lovely, as was a pear and calvados torte with pistachio ice cream (£5.25).

Service

Friendly

Cost

Three courses and a couple of drinks each for two people would cost around £80.
