Stopped by at the Roebuck for lunch, without booking, so took a gamble. Glad we did. What a beautiful setting. We chose to sit in the bar rather than the restaurant and it was so relaxing, with beautiful olde-worlde surroundings. There is a choice of a Sunday carvery or an extensive menu offering just about anything you could want. We... More

We have stayed in hotels with more facilities, bigger rooms and plumper carpets, but never at this price, and the Roebuck gets 5 stars for offering an extremely comfortable stay in the very competitive low/mid price-range market. The staff were very polite and efficient, restaurant service was perfect and the food nicely prepared and of copious quantity. The mixed grill... More

Stayed here on business for a short while. There is a decent sized conference room, and plenty of areas to grab a drink and have a quiet word. The hotel itself is a little maze like and it felt tired. My room was comfortable enough, and it did seem like it had been refurbished recently. However, the walls were thin... More

Before booking this hotel, I checked previous reviews to get an idea of what to expect. I do not believe every word that's written, but over several reviews, you get a fair idea. Most of what was said was very positive and I'm happy to add a 'thumbs-up' for the Roebuck. All the staff, without exception, were friendly, efficient and... More

Although we did not stay here, we popped in on a Sunday for a drink and light bite. Part of 'The Old English Inns' chain, we thoroughly enjoyed the 'Sharing and small plates' menu option with 5 plates for £14. Amongst the options are grilled Halloumi cheese with peppers and olives, hoisin duck pinchers, mini ribs with black treacle glaze.... More

This was our 8th visit and as usual the Roebuck did not let us down. The staff made us especially welcome as both my partner and me had resorted to walking sticks (back problems) and a brief 'phone call to Nick, the manager assured us of a room at the rear of the hotel so unloading the car would be...

Part of the Old English Inns group. They have some very good offers from time to time - worth looking out for. We like this hotel and have stayed there twice. The staff are very polite and helpful. The Manager is a cheerful man who seems to be enjoying his job with pride in the hotel. The bedding has been... More

None of us stayed overnight, but we all chose this place for its convenient location and good parking facilities as much as anything else. Besides being a group of 20 which brings its own challenges, the serving staff here could still have done a little better, as at the time there were hardly any other tables occupied. In spite of...

My friend and I have stayed at the Roebuck several times and it never disappoints. The staff are friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are spacious and clean and the beds are very comfortable. The showers are brilliant! Lovely to have big bath towels. The bar area is cosy and the food is tasty and... More

The Roebuck is part of the Old English Inns Group and as such offers exceptional value for money. Very clean, comfortable rooms and a warm welcombe from the staff. We have stayed at the Roebuck on a few occasions and never been dissapointed. Very reasonably priced food . Also only a relatively short ride fron Gatwick airport , much more... More
