From April: vintage afternoon teaCome and Join us for a quintessential British tradition – a delicious, mouth watering afternoon tea, £17.95 per person. We offer these Mon – Sat  (note not Sundays) and they must be booked and paid for  in advance and for a minimum of four people.  (This  is to avoid waste in the kitchen as the chef cannot make a batch of scones and cakes for just two people – especially if no-one turns up and everything has to go in the bin!)  The afternoon tea we offer is quite exceptional, we also cater for gluten free options. We do of course cater for large parties wanting a specific event and requiring afternoon tea,  please discuss availability with our manager.

  • Big thanks to you and your staff for our Golden Wedding Celebration

    Nothing was too much trouble

    Anne & Bill Owen
  • “We know we can recommend to friends and never be disappointed.”

    Mrs S Brown, Holmes Chapel
  • “We would just like to thank you and the staff at the Swettenham Arms for the really splendid 80th birthday celebration we had on Sunday afternoon, 7th February. The banqueting room looked magnificent and the meal was out of this world – our guests all remarked on the quality. Glyn organised the proceedings very well so everything ran very smoothly. Compliments to the chef and the kitchen staff and the ladies waiting on table were just lovely. Thank you Fran for suggesting Roy Peters he was just great with the music during the meal and throughout the afternoon. It was a really memorable day for us and thank you all very much for making it so. We will have to visit you in the summer when the sunflowers and lavenders are out!”

  • 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.

  • Stopped here for lunch on our way for a few days’ break in the Peak District, beautiful location, lovely gardens and internal decor, plus dog friendly which is why we stopped here. Good menu choice and polite efficient staff.

    Jacqueline S via TripAdvisor, May 2018
  • Thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal in this hidden gem. We had the Swettenham Arms recommended to us as we were staying nearby. We hadn’t booked as being a Thursday night we thought it would be fairly quiet, but it was almost full. The friendly manager found us a table and informed us that they still had a half price meal deal on… which greatly surprised us! The dining room was pleasant and cosy, and our drinks and food arrived and we certainly weren’t disappointed. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely return very soon….and hopefully the half price offer will still be on!
