Lovely Lavender

Created in 2005 the Lavender and Sunflower Meadow is a popular attraction  for customers during the summer months, and our show of lavender seems to get better with each passing year.  The  magnificent two-acre plot situated at the rear of the pub releases a gentle  soothing aroma in the breeze, and attracts a wealth of wildlife including a  triumphant local bee population.

Summer weddings

It is an ideal setting for parties and BBQs and has also proven to be a very popular location for summer weddings. The Lavender Meadow provides the ultimate in romantic scenery and is a superb photographic opportunity. To our knowledge, it’s the only one of its kind within the grounds of a pub, so it’s no wonder that wedding bookings have been taken from as far away as Australia and New Zealand.

It’s also a great place to take in the view over a refreshing drink and enjoy the wonderful scenery (our Swettenham sunsets are truly spectacular!).

  • Mothering Sunday lunch. Excellent choices all served by a very pleasant waiting staff of young ladies . We dined in the Lovell Suite , what a super light room. The meal was superb, and the place was busy.

  • “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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • “Arrived for lunch at a lovely outdoor seating area with a great variety of colourful flowers. The menu had lots of great meals which sounded great and had good prices. We had an amazing burger, scampi and fish & chips. Before we took the dogs for a walk we had a look around the back at the lavender meadow, flowered arches and gazebo where weddings take place. Lovely walks around the arboretum then came back for a excellent pot of tea which came in china cups with little shortbread biscuits. A perfect end to our day out. All this following Covid restrictions to the letter.”

  • Can’t praise highly enough. From the warm greeting of the manager, to the lovely waitress who got some cushions for my friend’s leg (recently broken) to the fabulous food it was all superb. The Lovell suite is an ideal setting for a summer event as with the French doors open the smell of the lavender meadow wafts in. Thank you all for a brilliant evening!

  • Idyllic. Beautiful outside setting to enjoy Sunday Lunch. Felt Covid secure. Outside tables are well spaced. Ordered food inside and social distancing was observed. Portions were generous. Every item on the plate was cooked perfectly. Gardens are beautiful and set against backdrop of lavender field.

  • 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
