wtf? no food at the inn
Use to be a grate watering hole when Tom an Linda had it an hadn't been there since they moved on. Went in for dinner last week but the landlord / chef Ian was too lazy to get off his arse and said he only did lunches. Wine and lager top priced. Landlord
The word around town is that since Tom and Linda went it has become known as Altrinchams gay pub.
Dunno, a few iffy looking blokes in there but we left and went to the George and Dragon down the road where paying customers CAN get a meal in an evening and a cheaper pint. Dunno it that is Enterprise Brewery or landlords fault.
One thing - the toilets are the pits - really dirty n stink.

The Old Roebuck
What you are reading from JBD, Scarymary and alangib are fabrications of a deluded so called journalist who was barred from the Roebuck for doing something that cannot be put on here, he is trying to cast desperations on the the Roebuck, what has been written on this page begs the question if other than JBD who has been barred, the others find the pub that bad why are they still going in? I will say now that the food is superb and value for money and the staff are lovely as for Iain he is always there making sure that you enjoy you're visit. I would like now to put a question to JBD have you found anywhere else that would give you a tab? I bet you haven't, and as for the service that you received I cannot for one minute think that you could remember as whenever I saw you no matter what time of day you were about thirteen sheets to the wind.

The Roebuck Rides Again
  10 / 10
I cant believe what I have read in the comment posted below ... This is a Traditional pub in all its glory. The beer is fantastic, the service is great, the regulars are friendly. What more could you ask for. The food is also really good and for the price I would say its the best deal in town. They have Karaoke on a Sunday which is great and a quiz night on a Tuesday, so come on down and see what yoy are missing ...... Seriously come and joinus for a beer .... Mine's a Boddies !!

Olde Worlde British Pub's still survive
  8 / 10
If you want Witherspoons et al go somewhere else. If you want friendly Ye Olde Worlde brit pub, good ale and lunch time food in a warm friendly atmosphere, this is the place. New owner but person has been manager for decades so nothing much has changed, even the old landlady still works at the pub.

The Olde Roebuck's reputation heads off down Victoria St.
Well what the folks have been saying in earlier reviews is quite true.
Tommy and Linda were the driving enthusiasm behind the Roebuck for 20 years and while Iain worked as their manager for a goodly piece of that time he hasn't inherited their work ethic (read lazy)and definitely not their natural chatty warmth and hospitality.
It's a very cold and virtually hostile environment to walk into now since they retired. The bar staff aren't the smiling, chatty, friendly stereotypes one expects.
Miserable and morose is a better description. A couple of them do have an irritating habit of disappearing into the beer garden every few minutes for a smoko, normally just when someone needs serving.
All been there too long, part of the furniture and lacking a good kick in the backsides. It's bit like walking into a government departments office and waiting to be attended to: a bureaucratic frigidity, once served, then ignored, unless one of the bar staff's personal clique.
Little wonder the pub's losing custom to the Malt Shovels, Orange Tree and Brickies. Recent outside decor isn't too bad but funds should have been committed first to refurbishing the lounge toilets for both sexes. Apparently the ladies are in a worse state than the gents, which is hard to believe.
The vaunted beer garden for them that smokes is an over-rated heap, a stretch of canvass and a couple of tables, and open to every naunce of the cold winds and sweeping rains.
A comment was made in one review that the pub's goodwill has started sliding down Victoria Street. I'd venture it has slid all the way down to Kingway by now. Avoid at all costs ! (JBD)
