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….

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…..

  • What a delightful pub/restaurant. The menu was extensive and the food was absolutely delicious. It is a bit remote, but well worth the trouble getting there.

  • 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.

  • “Popped in here for refreshments what out walking. Lovely setting, two nice beer gardens. Decent beer and choice. Wedding on when we were here but plenty of room to find a table outside. On summer’s day this place is perfect for a beer and a chat. Nice walk to the rear in the Lovell gardens.”
