The Roebuck Public House, Chapel en le Frith

Recent Photograph of The Roebuck Public House (Chapel en le Frith)

The Roebuck - situated alongside the Market Place. This pub had the right to stay open till 4 p.m. on market day, for the benefit of ‘farmers and corn and provision merchants’, at a time when under English licensing laws, 2 p.m. was the official lunchtime closing. In the early 18th century, the inn was known as the New Hall.

There were at least 2 more pubs in the market area, both long since defunct - the ‘Black Greyhound’ and the ‘Bull's Head’. The building which now houses the Post Office also used to be an inn, known as ‘The Swan’.
