We visited the Travellers Rest this evening, where we enjoyed beautiful home cooked food in lovely surroundings. The staff were welcoming and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you.

Had high hopes for this place after reading lastest reviews. Sad to say it didn’t deliver. Lovely staff, but food is way overpriced for what it is. Good luck guys but I’m worried for you..
