About the Pub

Friendly country pub, now a privately-owned free-house, offering a warm welcome and pleasant atmosphere. There is a comfortable single room main bar, often quite busy, and a separate large, smart, 48-seater restaurant located beyond the bar.

The lunch menu offers limited choice, but the evening menu is wider ranging and includes pizzas. There are separate Sunday menus.

A new(ish) microbrewery is located to the rear of the car park. This commenced operations in July 2017, but although this is run by a separate company, the Roebuck Brewing Company, its beers are show-cased in the pub.

The Klondike Mill Steam Preservation Centre is located a few hundred yards to the south. The National Trust’s Sudbury Hall, with its Museum of Childhood, and the National Football Centre at St. George’s Park are both within 5 miles.

Historic Interest

The building dates from 1676, but may not have been a pub until early 1800s (earliest reference in 1810, when known as the White Hart). It later became the Buck Inn (references in 1862 and 1881). The Roebuck name dates from 1910 (according to a local!). Bought by Marston’s circa 1878, it remained in their hands until sold to the current owners in January 2017 and re-opened March 2017 after some refurbishment. (A framed early history of the pub, which was previously in the main bar, is currently located above the gents urinals!)
