At the back of the pub is a glorious lavender field, the perfect place for summer drinks. If you took a photo of our lavender in its full glory, we’d love to see it.
Party of 6 celebrating a Birthday on a Saturday lunchtime. Given the excellent tripadvisor reviews, booked a table in advance – we were not disappointed! It was fairly quiet when we arrived but soon became very busy. Service was quick and efficient and they looked after us with regards to a surprise birthday cake which we had taken along. The menu choice is good and the roasts are not limited to Sunday, therefore I opted for roast lamb dinner – gorgeous! It is the best roast dinner I have eaten for a long time in a pub! Other members in the party had chicken, pie, salmon and all enjoyed their meals and very reasonably priced for the quality of food. It is also a lovely drive out and we will definitely be returning again!

We haven’t been for a year but as the weather was super today and it’s a lovely drive we headed out into the country. There was a classic motor bike meeting and some fantastic cars from local people, we both ordered the scampi which is one of the best that we have had .

Visited as a family to celebration a father and son’s birthdays with other family members. It was a great meal. The host could not have been more welcoming, felt special. Will certainly be back.

“The cafe menu had a good range on offer. Good place to end or start a walk or even midway. We tried the sandwiches that were excellent. Currently only takeaway.”

We had a salad and a salmon sandwich with hand cut chips. All very good and a lovely place to be. Great service too.

One of the very best pubs I have ever been in.

The local surroundings are lovely and set in Cheshire countryside, greeted at door immediately on entering and shown to our table, drinks order promptly taken, and furnished with menus. Quick but not rushed service we are off to a good start. The only disappointment was my duck was cooked right through and I would much preferred it to be much pinker. This made what otherwise would have been a superb dish only a good one. But still a good one. Desserts were lovely, service fantastic, so very very nearly a five star rating I look forward to returning.

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.
