The second of McCartans' award-winning pub restaurants, The Roebuck Inn was refurbished and reopened in 2016.  Located in the heart of Laughton village since sometime in the 16th Century, this family favourite offers a full restaurant menu that starts with breakfast [from 9am] to dinner [last orders at 8.45pm].

This traditional if not a little qwerky village pub also plays host to a large and picturesque outdoor eatery, play area, garden and chill out, not to mention being home to our two micro pigs - Bramble & Primrose, a Koi Carp plunge pool as well as a number of truly free-range hens.

In addition, we offer 4 beautiful and self contained, en-suite guest rooms which have fast become a favourite with the Glyndebourne crowd, as well as an event hall and theatre that not only features a range of our own entertainments throughout the year but is also available for private hire, weddings, parties and other events.
