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.

Banqueting Suite

The banqueting 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • We stumbled upon this beautiful pub whilst out and about on a bike ride. We’re glad we did because it was a very welcoming place. We found a cosy corner table and enjoyed an evening meal here. Good ales on too. Service friendly and very efficient. Couldn’t fault our experience here. Would definitely revisit if in the area again and would recommend without hesitation.

  • Just returned from a lovely lunch with friends. The pub is spotless and very welcoming. All staff without exception were polite, helpful and happy. The food was delightful. There were five of us and everyone enjoyed their food. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our visit and would certainly return without hesitation.
