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.
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 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. “

“A lovely sunny evening. Warm welcome. Dog friendly. A really enjoyable meal of duck breast and tasty red cabbage. Staff and locals very welcoming and helpful.”

Just to say we had an excellent day and really enjoyed a lovely meal, beautifully served. The service was wonderful and everyone made us feel welcome. We were particularly appreciative of the high level of efficiency and professionalism amongst such young staff and are mindful of the fact that a lot goes on in the background to make the day go smoothly and for our enjoyment which we do not see. We are not regular customers but as trueborn Swettenham folk really enjoy coming home and it being so worthwhile. We will see you next year.

“We hadn’t booked for lunch but they very very kindly found us a table, there were quite a few things not available on the menu as they are in the process of changing it. This didn’t bother us as we had gone for a traditional Sunday lunch and we were not disappointed. Plenty of piping hot food a good selection of vegetables and three good slices of roast pork .”

Spent my 50th at this fabulous place. Hired Lovell Suite and had marquee attached. The canapes, dressed buffet, service from staff at function and overall presentation was absolutely incredible. Glyn, the manager, was superb – communicated brilliantly and was such a professional host. Had the best time. Very highly recommended.

“One can not improve on perfection! Excellent day out.”
We went in February on a Thursday night, when the offer was on, very busy but no undue wait. Good selection of beers, wines on menu and excellent food. Even on full price the menu is good value for money and would definitely go back, so one to add to your list to explore
