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!).

  • “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!”

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.”

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Started with a very friendly welcome and a very good range of cask beers. Quite an extensive menu and the food really was exceptional. This was supported by the friendly staff.

  • 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
