“nice atmosphere good food”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

Its been 25 years or so since last in the travellers, and how it has changed. Made to feel welcome by Linda, who looked after us all evening. Even though it was a Friday evenng, the place was not very full. Decent range of meals to choose from, all the usualls, plus a few different choices, all at a reasonable price compared to other establishments. I picked chilli beef tacos, with cajun fries, they were very good, and quite spicy. Wife had steak pie, loads of large chunks of beef in it.
However, the desserts were not of the same quality, frozen and defrosted, as my bannoffee roulade was icy in the middle, but soft on the outer. But that will not stop me from returning in the near future.
I do not understand why the pub is not as busy as other local ones for food, if you have not been, then give it a go, like we did, you may be surprised

“Well Worth A Visit”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

I frequently visit the Travellers Rest and I must say I am very impressed with the food and the staff are always very welcoming especially Linda and Jessica. It is always very clean and the food is value for money.
