Updated on: October 13 2015

As the Hilden Style Awards close for another year, it is with much delight we announce to you the winner of the Most Stylish Dining Experience.

Our annual judges’ lunch took place on Monday at The Fable, London – one of the winners from last year’s awards – where they spent over three hours debating this year’s worthy winners.

We are pleased to announce that the winner for Most Stylish Dining Experience is The Church Inn at Mobberley, Cheshire.


Judges’ comments included: “The attention to detail is on another level, no corner is left uncovered and they have captured the essence of a historic venue perfectly. The sheer effort that has gone into creating a unique, country dining experience is fantastic. When can we eat here?”

About the Church Inn at Mobberley

The Church Inn is a pub/dining establishment based just outside of the village of Knutsford. The pub is located opposite an old Church on a country lane and can be dated back to the 18th century, it opened in 2013 after being acquired and renovated by its current owners, Tim Bird and Mary McLaughlin.

Alongside the Church Inn, Tim and Mary own two other pubs in the village, one of which has been recently acquired and currently in the process of being renovated into a guesthouse.


The winning room in this beautiful venue is the George Mallory private dining area located up the stairs. This room is dominated by a large wooden table to accommodate for private parties and wine tasting events. It is mainly lit by candlelit which allows you to imagine how it would have looked when it was first built. To add to this theme the room is half renovated and half not – as the owners found the original plaster work during renovation and decided to keep this for historical value. The Mallory room is named in tribute to George Mallory, a local villager and son of the Church’s priest who died climbing Mount Everest in 1924.

The Church Inn is cosy and warm yet perfectly themed to its historic significance. It  is inviting and open; whilst also having many rooms and compartments to hide yourself away in.
