ICONIC CHESHIRE PUB RE-OPENS FOLLOWING INVESTMENT BY ROBINSONS
The Swettenham Arms, a popular pub and wedding venue situated in the picturesque village of Swettenham, has re-opened its doors following a 2-month long refurbishment from Stockport based Robinsons Brewery. Acquired by the family brewers in August 2021, the renovation continues Robinsons' commitment to investing into their 250-plus strong tenanted and managed pub estate.
The Swettenham Arms is a delightful 16th Century Inn concealed behind a 13th Century Parish Church. The new-look pub has benefited from a sensitive refurbishment retaining and reviving original celebrated features such as crackling fireplaces and the original copper top bar. Oak beams have been sandblasted throughout the pub, with warm neutral tones adorning the area creating the perfect ambience. The pub’s popular function room (known as the Lovell Suite) has also been redecorated and can hold up to 120 guests – a great-sized space for functions, weddings and parties.
The pub now boasts a brand-new kitchen extension to the rear of the building and a newly remodeled breakfast area, creating the perfect space to relax and have a bite to eat from their delicious menu, surrounded by the country.
Externally, the Swettenham is now decorated with blooming new flowers, a new signage scheme and external furniture, perfect for the coming warmer months. With a large external seating area, it’s the perfect spot to relax and take in the picturesque views over some tempting food and drink.

About The Swettenham Arms:
A former Nunnery, the inn was used as a resting place for weary funeral parties. Whilst relatives and loved–ones stayed overnight, the bodies were taken to the church via an underground tunnel for a funeral the following day.
Today, St. Peters Church still towers over the car park, its’ melodious bell chimes occasionally intercepting the peace of the tiny Cheshire village. Meanwhile, present-day visitors to the Swettenham Arms are drawn by the prospect of food and refreshments after a pleasant stroll/bike ride in the surrounding countryside, or from a visit to The Quinta Arboretum next door!
