Our History

Click here to see our current special offers on food and drink.

The Swettenham Arms is a delightful 16th Century Inn concealed behind a 13th Century Parish Church.

A former Nunnery, the inn was used as a resting place for weary funeral parties. Whilst relatives and loved–ones stayed overnight, the bodies were taken to the church via an underground tunnel for funeral the following day.

Today, St. Peters Church still towers over the car park, its’ melodious bell chimes occasionally intercepting the peace of the tiny Cheshire village.

Meanwhile, present day visitors to the Swettenham Arms are drawn by the prospect of food and refreshment after a pleasant stroll/bike ride in the surrounding countryside, or from a visit to The Quinta Arboretum next door!
