Our History

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!

  • 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.
