About

At the Swettenham Arms we strive for excellence in every area of our business. We support small micro-breweries to bring you an evolving variety of real ales; we source the freshest of ingredients for our menus using local produce where possible; we hand pick wines of high quality from fine wine merchants (or in some cases the growers themselves!).

We want your visit here to be more than just a trip to the local pub, but an experience beyond all your expectations that you’ll want to enjoy again and again.

Lovell banqueting Suite

The Lovell suite is one of the most charming in Cheshire, providing an idyllic setting for any function, beautifully enhanced by the lavender and sunflower meadow (in full bloom July/August) and The Quinta Arboretum Wildlife and Nature Reserve.

A quintessential English pub

We are a quintessential English pub, and endeavour to uphold the little extra touches that our customers hold in high regard. Whether it’s fresh flowers on the tables or a welcoming open fire on cold winter days, the inn remains true to its character.

  • We had a salad and a salmon sandwich with hand cut chips. All very good and a lovely place to be. Great service too.

  • 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.

  • First visit and def won’t be the last. The staff are friendly and happy. Very clean and the food was amazing, best steak I’ve had in a long time, cooked just how I asked. Hope to return soon, I will be telling everyone about this hidden gem.

  • Just to say we had an excellent day and really enjoyed a lovely meal, beautifully served.  The service was wonderful and everyone made us feel welcome.  We were particularly appreciative of the high level of efficiency and professionalism amongst such young staff and are mindful of the fact that a lot goes on in the background to make the day go smoothly and for our enjoyment which we do not see. We are not regular customers but as trueborn Swettenham folk really enjoy coming home and it being so worthwhile.  We will see you next year.

  • Can’t praise highly enough. From the warm greeting of the manager, to the lovely waitress who got some cushions for my friend’s leg (recently broken) to the fabulous food it was all superb. The Lovell suite is an ideal setting for a summer event as with the French doors open the smell of the lavender meadow wafts in. Thank you all for a brilliant evening!

  • “Called in today and the place is a typical English pub. Beams, horse brasses and a lovely atmosphere. I have been before and the place gets really busy at the weekends. Great place for a pub lunch so try it if you are in the area.”

  • Sunday lunch with family, lovely pub/restaurant in a nice location. Booked in advance and was given a good table, excellent service and polite attentive staff. The food was piping hot and very tasty. Great pub and now a fixture on our favourite haunts – will definitely visit again.

  • “Friday 26th July was my daughter’s wedding. We were lucky with the weather and what a great setting. The food was superb and even the pickiest eaters said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding . I have nothing but praise for Glyn and his team for the seamless management of the wedding breakfast . They helped to make a wonderful day even more special.”

  • 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.
