Great Inn. This place serves great food in the traditional and cosy Inn. Upstairs the rooms are brand new. Clean, comfy. Would stay again. The road it is situated on does get very busy, so not the quietest place to stay in lakes. However this just meant we were closer to all places we wanted to visit.

Driving through the Lake District on a sunny day we came across this traditional looking inn by the side of the road. Despite being fairly busy our order was taken quickly by friendly staff. The starter of home made soup was quickly delivered to our table outside and it was excellent, really tasty. The mains of traditional roast beef with...

We have stayed at Traveller's Rest previously and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Our stay this time was even more enjoyable and the staff were amazing as always, especially Christina and Mikaela, and also the new member of the team Celia.

Went here for my mum's birthday on 19 March. Staff were very helpful and the pub was warm and welcoming. A lot of choice on the menu but in the end we opted for the beef roast. Everything was delicious from the beef to the huge Yorkshire puds. Would definitely visit again next time we are in Grasmere.

The Travellers Rest is a good pub serving well kept real ales. In winter, it had real fires burning. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Food is a bit upmarket for a pub. More restaurant than pub. Large portions at around £12 to £16.
