Take time to enjoy the delights of the Swettenham Arms in one of Cheshire’s most attractive villages

After a gentle stroll through the neighbouring Quinta arboretum enjoying the abundance of wildlife and nature, step into the warmth of the Swettenham Arms with its roaring fires and you’ll experience something unique; a delightful mix of a traditional country pub atmosphere with delicious modern British cuisine.

Nestled in the heart of the Cheshire countryside between Congleton and Holmes Chapel, you’ll find one of Cheshire’s favourite gastro country inns, the Swettenham Arms, privately owned for the last 21 years by Frances and Jim Cunningham and dating back to the 16th century.

Our Head Chef is committed to sourcing as much local, seasonal food as possible and transforming it into culinary delights for fabulous Sunday lunches and gastro style meals throughout the week as recognized by Michelin, AA’s Pub Guide and other good food guides.

The Swettenham Arms also prides itself on pulling the perfect pint and is regularly featured in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide. It’s a free house, so you’ll always find a fabulous selection of real ales, continental lagers, beers, ciders and high quality wines from around the world for your enjoyment.

A spectacular setting for your wedding, our tastefully decorated Lovell Suite, is surrounded by gardens and open countryside and in the summer months, the lavender and sunflower meadow is in full bloom.

The Lovell Suite can comfortably hold up to 120 guests for a traditional ceremony and wedding breakfast and up to 150 guests in the evening. We can accommodate more should you wish to use our outdoor space where we have ample room for a marquee. We are fully licensed for civil wedding ceremonies, both in the Lovell Suite or in our stunning grounds. For anyone considering a traditional church wedding, St Peter’s Church opposite to us is perfect.

Together with their staff, Frances and Jim Cunningham offer you a traditional, warm, country welcome.
