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.
“Popped in here for refreshments what out walking. Lovely setting, two nice beer gardens. Decent beer and choice. Wedding on when we were here but plenty of room to find a table outside. On summer’s day this place is perfect for a beer and a chat. Nice walk to the rear in the Lovell gardens.”

“Thanks to Glyn and the team for a lovely evening at our Ruby Wedding party on 14th August, 2015. The food was lovely and the service perfect. Thank all your staff for us. All our family and friends thought the Swettenham Arms was a lovely venue. Thank you once more for all your help on the night and before.” Mike and Christine Oswell, 14th August 2015.

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!

“Friday 26th July was my daughter’s wedding. We were lucky with the weather and what a great setting. The food was superb and even the pickiest eaters said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding . I have nothing but praise for Glyn and his team for the seamless management of the wedding breakfast . They helped to make a wonderful day even more special.”

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!

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!
