A 2 night break away at the Travellers Rest Inn - (found on Laterooms.com) gave us just the escape needed. Check in was simple and quick - the accommodation was lovely - our room was small but spotlessly clean and the bathroom very modern. The Manager and the staff were very helpful and can't do enough for you. The food... More

The Traveller's Rest is a 15th century coaching inn and is full of old world charm. It is just outside Grasmere village but as a reasonable sized car park. Food is based on traditional pub grub, but cooked to a higher than normal standard. During the busy season it would be wise to book, normally you can just walk in... More

We read the earlier reviews and decided to go to the pub. Overall I would recommend the pub/restaurant. You must place your food order/drink order at the bar and then they bring the food to your table. We ended up waiting for a waitress for 15 to 20 minutes at our table before anyone explained the routine for ordering. The... More

Hello John, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us! I'm sorry to hear you were waiting for 15 minutes before you were served, since the bar area is directly in front of the entrance to our Inn, we don't normally get anyone sitting down without being greeted first. Perhaps you have slipped past us unnoticed :) Nevertheless, I'm very... More

Family visit to enjoy the carvery option. The restaurant was very cozy, the staff friendly and the food was delicious and well prepared. My only bug bear (and this is a personal choice thing); my burger was presented on a bread board. I had to ask for a plate, which was obligingly provided. So no bad reflection on the Travellers...
