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.
We have been going for years but having moved away we came back and had a super lunch on a sunny day outside .The staff and food were excellent highly recommended.

“The surroundings of the pub, including the lavender field and the adjacent arboretum, are stunning all year round. The staff are friendly. The drinks are excellent and the ale is varied and well kept. The food is consistently excellent. I truly can’t recommend it highly enough. “

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.

“Called in today and the place is a typical English pub. Beams, horse brasses and a lovely atmosphere. I have been before and the place gets really busy at the weekends. Great place for a pub lunch so try it if you are in the area.”

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!

Sunday lunch with family, lovely pub/restaurant in a nice location. Booked in advance and was given a good table, excellent service and polite attentive staff. The food was piping hot and very tasty. Great pub and now a fixture on our favourite haunts – will definitely visit again.

Lovely place. Food is beautiful and the decor is wonderful. Prices are quite high but the portions and quality make it entirely worth it. Staff are excellent. Lavender worth seeing during summer also – so beautiful!

“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 just wanted to thank all the staff who helped make Andrew and Jen’s Wedding so special. Everyone had a wonderful time and so many guests commented on the beautiful venue and fabulous food.
