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.

  • Very busy on this visit as part of a large group. Staff welcoming. We had a longer than usual wait but the food was excellent when it arrived.

  • 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!

  • “On behalf of the members of the Cloud Group of Women’s Institutes, I wish to thank you and your staff for providing us with a superb day on July 1st, helping us to celebrate 100 years of the WI. The lunch was most enjoyable and the weather was perfect, in fact a little too perfect,- being the hottest day of the year!!  Your staff were wonderful and very attentive and members thank them for the endless jugs of iced water they supplied to them. We all had a great day, and many thanks again to yourself and the team for their total efficiency.  It is wonderful to have a great team who take pride in the work they do.”

  • 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 place. Food is beautiful and the decor is wonderful. Prices are quite high but the portions and quality make it entirely worth it. Staff are excellent. Lavender worth seeing during summer also – so beautiful!

  • 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.
