The Swettenham Arms.

One Of Cheshire's Finest Country Inns

Celebrating our 26th 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 their staff, Frances and Jim Cunningham offer you a traditional, warm, country welcome.

 
 
 

 

 

 

  • “The surroundings of the pub, including the lavender field and the adjacent arboretum, are stunning all year round. The staff are friendly. The drinks are excellent and the ale is varied and well kept. The food is consistently excellent. I truly can’t recommend it highly enough. “

  • Spent my 50th at this fabulous place. Hired Lovell Suite and had marquee attached. The canapes, dressed buffet, service from staff at function and overall presentation was absolutely incredible. Glyn, the manager, was superb – communicated brilliantly and was such a professional host. Had the best time. Very highly recommended.

  • Party of 6 celebrating a Birthday on a Saturday lunchtime. Given the excellent tripadvisor reviews, booked a table in advance – we were not disappointed! It was fairly quiet when we arrived but soon became very busy. Service was quick and efficient and they looked after us with regards to a surprise birthday cake which we had taken along. The menu choice is good and the roasts are not limited to Sunday, therefore I opted for roast lamb dinner – gorgeous! It is the best roast dinner I have eaten for a long time in a pub! Other members in the party had chicken, pie, salmon and all enjoyed their meals and very reasonably priced for the quality of food. It is also a lovely drive out and we will definitely be returning again!

  • Lovely food and steak cooked perfectly. We often go here after a day out in the area as we live some thirty miles away and have never had a bad experience. The grounds and flowers are perfect on a sunny day to sit and relax with friends. Latest visit on a Sunday nearly every table was reserved but without signs on the table- had already purchased drinks and sat down for a good ten minutes with menus before being told this. Enjoyed the food and will return again.
