Celebrating our 28th year

Nestled in the heart of the Cheshire countryside between Congleton and Holmes Chapel, you’ll find one of Cheshire’s favourite gastro country inns, the Swettenham Arms, dating back to the 16th century.

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…..

Together with her staff, Frances Cunningham offers you a traditional, warm, country welcome.

 
 
 

 

 

 

  • Called in today and the place is a typical English pub. Beams horse, brasses and a lovely atmosphere. Great place for a pub lunch so try it if you are in the area.

  • We had a small private function in the Lovell Suite at the Swettenham Arms last week, comprised of afternoon tea for approximately 20 people. Everything was extremely well organised and our waitress was very attentive.

  • Visited as a family to celebration a father and son’s birthdays with other family members. It was a great meal. The host could not have been more welcoming, felt special. Will certainly be back.

  • The beef stroganoff with wild rice takeaway I had tonight was delicious. The food was ready on time and piping hot. Compliments to the chef for a superb meal. Best takeaway food for miles and I’ve sampled a few.

  • Started with a very friendly welcome and a very good range of cask beers. Quite an extensive menu and the food really was exceptional. This was supported by the friendly staff.

  • Enjoyed a walk followed by Sunday lunch at the pub. Ordered a small roast which was delicious and a reasonable size portion. A busy pub so be prepared for a short wait.
