Spent a great evening at the travellers rest pub whilst staying nearby. We loved the food, which was all freshly made as well as the unassuming service. Would definitely recommend the Thai green curry - stunning!

We reserved a table literally at the last minute for a party of nine, even though it was a busy evening. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, the atmosphere in the pub was good. All of the food selections were excellent I enjoyed the sea bass and others commented on quality of the fish and chips. I would not... More

A dog friendly pub with excellent friendly customer service. The fish and chips, with the best mushy peas i have ever tasted is second to none. Would highly recommend the restaurant. Staff can't do enough.

We headed for a spot of lunch in the gloom and murk on the headlands beyond Mawgan and found ourselves at The Traveller’s Rest in the village of Trevarrian. The pub was much better than the village, and the pricey Carvery looked rather tempting, and judging by the numbers in and the fact that many were locals, seemed to give... More

The food never gets dull- you can stick with fish and chips or go for more adventurous dishes; we stayed in B and B nearby and never had to have the same meal twice. Even "ordinary" mains had a twist to them like the hot creamy sauce with the Medburger. They keep their beer well and there's a nice range... More

Stopped here for a drink and a light bite to eat whilst driving around and sightseeing for the day. Really approachable and friendly staff. Our light bite entailed ordering a anti-platter sharer as well as some calamari. Both meals were fanstastic, and would recommend this as a dining experience for couples and friends.
