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!).

  • “On behalf of the members of the Cloud Group of Women’s Institutes, I wish to thank you and your staff for providing us with a superb day on July 1st, helping us to celebrate 100 years of the WI. The lunch was most enjoyable and the weather was perfect, in fact a little too perfect,- being the hottest day of the year!!  Your staff were wonderful and very attentive and members thank them for the endless jugs of iced water they supplied to them. We all had a great day, and many thanks again to yourself and the team for their total efficiency.  It is wonderful to have a great team who take pride in the work they do.”

  • 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.

  • 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!
