Stopped here to get a late lunch .. What a lucky find! Had the 3 course steak menu for £18.95 really nice food.... Cooked well and very tasty only thing I would say is portions are s bit small .. Pleasant staff they even got us a bowl for the dogs would definitely recommend for somewhere nice to eat.

Like another reviewer I had passed the Travellers Rest going to Keswick from Ambleside and back many times and never had the opportunity or reason to stop. Last week we went up Helvellyn in the afternoon as the weather was better than the morning and landed at the TR around 8.30 PM. I got a craving for steak and chips... More

Thank you for this great review Cheshirecat100! We're so pleased to hear you've enjoyed the atmosphere and food at our Inn. We certainly get quite busy during lunch, the location is great for Helvellyn range walks! Hopefully we'll see you back at the Inn in not too distant future! More

We really enjoyed our short stay, great views, nice rooms, great shower, thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast - we had 2 dogs and they even set a table a little away from the other guests (not everybody likes dogs). People have commented on the road noise what do you expect, it's a busy main road in the Lake Distict - would... More

Recently stated here city some friends and our dogs for 2 nights. At just a 10/15 minute walk from Grasmere, the location is brilliant. Rooms were small but modern (a little hot at times though). The breakfast was good, if a little small portion wise and the bar served some good local ales. Only a couple of gripes which would've... More

Stayed for 2 nights on a walking holiday. The location and views from the inn were excellent. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was really good and we had the steak 2 course dinner one evening - the steak was cooked exactly as ordered. The room was clean and comfortable, if a little small. The bed... More

We stopped at the Travellers Rest Inn for a late afternoon meal. The food arrived quickly after placing our order and it was delicious. The prices were extremely reasonably too. Fabulous food, super service with perfect prices! Highly recommended!

Great inn very close to lovely Grasmere. Excellent position if starting a walk to Hellvellyn. Welcoming and friendly staff and great breakfast. We had one evening meal which was nice and good value. It's an old Inn full of character and charm. I only have one compliant - the bed was really uncomfortable. I got very little sleep, springs poking... More

Booked in here to overnight after Day 3 of my Coast to Coast walk. Check-in was easy. All staff were friendly/helpful. The food at dinner [steak and kidney pudding] was superb. The bedroom was perfectly adequate for an "inn with rooms" with a good shower. The radiators in the bedroom are always on [but turned down to zero] so if... More

Having stayed here for three nights and explored Grasmere we found this Inn to be a great find. Very friendly staff from behind the bar to waitress and cleaners (very clean). If u don't mind a short 15 min walk into the village or the closeness to a road then this is a must place to stay in wonderful Grasmere!!!
