Been kicking up leaves on an autumnal family walk? Cycled along the footpaths on a bright spring day? Taken a stroll in the neighbouring arboretum? We’d love to see your photos taken in and around the pub.
Big thanks to you and your staff for our Golden Wedding Celebration
Nothing was too much trouble

“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 had a simple lunch at the Swettenham Arms after a walk and sat in the bar area. Service was quick (with plenty of staff), friendly and attentive and the soup tasty with nice artisan bread. We noted that the pub has a large car park, seems dog-friendly and is well-situated for walks in the Dane Valley.

First visit and def won’t be the last. The staff are friendly and happy. Very clean and the food was amazing, best steak I’ve had in a long time, cooked just how I asked. Hope to return soon, I will be telling everyone about this hidden gem.

“I felt I had to write and thank you for the lovely evening we enjoyed on Friday, 30th Jan for an 80th birthday party. The setting outside and in was lovely and the food extremely good, as was the service. A special thank you to Glyn and staff. I was very pleased with everything and had most favourable comments from all the guests, I would have no hesitation in recommending the Swettenham Arms to anyone.”

What a delightful pub/restaurant. The menu was extensive and the food was absolutely delicious. It is a bit remote, but well worth the trouble getting there.

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.
