“Good Value for Money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Met family for lunch 12th June 13, ate 2 @ Sirloin Steaks and 2 @ Haddock. Steak tender and cooked to perfection ie. BLUE, Haddock lovely and fresh, crispy batter. The only downside is that they now serve the chips in a very small sidedish and the portion is about half the size as they used to serve but LOOKS large. A cost cutting exercise.

“Travellers Rest Beefeater, Ross on Wye”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We were staying at the adjacent premier inn for 2 nights and had been concerned to see poor reviews of this restaurant however my fears were unfounded as we had a pleasant experience dining here for two evening meals and two breakfasts. Maybe the furnishings are a little jaded but we found the staff attentive and friendly and the food well cooked. We met up with friends the first evening and the service was good but not overbearing as we were enjoying taking our time chatting over our meal. The second evening we ate as a couple - the restaurant was very busy and I thought service would be slow but service was efficient and timely. The breakfast staff were especially cheery and welcoming and I would recommend this restaurant.

“Charming service shame about the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We had lunch at The Travellers Rest on Easter Saturday. There were 10 of us including 2 vegetarians and 3 children under 7.
Unlike other customers, we found the service particularly good. The staff were all attentive and helpful and the meals came in good time.
There was a vast choice on the menu and we felt that the food probably suffered as a result. Mushroom risotto came with no identifiable mushrooms (although the manager kindly organised a plate of freshly cooked mushrooms to go with it when we commented), the roast vegetable pasta was bland and the chips were not the best. On the other hand, my husband highly rated the fish and the vegetarian tart and beef ribs were also tasty.
We ordered 9 meals and also had 4 plates of nachos and drinks and the whole lot came in at under £10 each, having said that we did order most of the meals off the discounted (pre 6:30pm) menu.
This is not the place to go if you are looking for a gourmet meal but we found the staff charming, there was plenty of parking, colouring for the children and we were in and out in an hour which, with 3 young boys, is always a bonus.

My wife and I had a lunchtime (midway) get together with our daughter and grandson. Had an enjoyable and casual lunch, with good service.
