Modern British cuisine, every day of the week.

We’re committed to sourcing as much local, seasonal food as possible and transforming it into culinary delights for fabulous Sunday lunches and gastro style meals throughout the week as recognised by Michelin and other good food guides….

Your idyllic Cheshire wedding venue.

With a blend of modern cuisine and a warm, traditional welcome, the Swettenham Arms offers a picturesque and tranquil setting for civil weddings and celebrations.  The Lovell Suite provides the perfect space for your wedding reception accommodating up to 120 guests. For further details contact Frances Cunningham, Proprietor.

Wines, beers, ciders and beautifully kept real ale.

The Swettenham Arms prides itself on pulling the perfect pint and is regularly featured in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide.  It’s a free house, so you’ll always find a fabulous selection of real ales, lagers and ciders as well as the best wines.

A traditional, country pub welcome.

After a gentle stroll through the neighbouring Quinta arboretum enjoying the abundance of wildlife and nature, step into the warmth of the Swettenham Arms, with roaring fires and hearty food, to while away a couple more hours…..

  • “Arrived for lunch at a lovely outdoor seating area with a great variety of colourful flowers. The menu had lots of great meals which sounded great and had good prices. We had an amazing burger, scampi and fish & chips. Before we took the dogs for a walk we had a look around the back at the lavender meadow, flowered arches and gazebo where weddings take place. Lovely walks around the arboretum then came back for a excellent pot of tea which came in china cups with little shortbread biscuits. A perfect end to our day out. All this following Covid restrictions to the letter.”

  • “The food quality here dipped a few years ago but is now consistently good. The menu could be considered old-fashioned, but to many of us that is a plus point! The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is freshly cooked and good quality.”

  • The local surroundings are lovely and set in Cheshire countryside, greeted at door immediately on entering and shown to our table, drinks order promptly taken, and furnished with menus. Quick but not rushed service we are off to a good start. The only disappointment was my duck was cooked right through and I would much preferred it to be much pinker. This made what otherwise would have been a superb dish only a good one. But still a good one. Desserts were lovely, service fantastic, so very very nearly a five star rating I look forward to returning.
