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.

  • Idyllic. Beautiful outside setting to enjoy Sunday Lunch. Felt Covid secure. Outside tables are well spaced. Ordered food inside and social distancing was observed. Portions were generous. Every item on the plate was cooked perfectly. Gardens are beautiful and set against backdrop of lavender field.

  • “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 beef stroganoff with wild rice takeaway I had tonight was delicious. The food was ready on time and piping hot. Compliments to the chef for a superb meal. Best takeaway food for miles and I’ve sampled a few.

  • We went in February on a Thursday night, when the offer was on, very busy but no undue wait. Good selection of beers, wines on menu and excellent food. Even on full price the menu is good value for money and would definitely go back, so one to add to your list to explore

  • “The food quality here dipped a few years ago but is now consistently good. The menu could be considered old-fashioned, but to many of us that is a plus point! The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is freshly cooked and good quality.”
