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.

Stayed here as a couple from Feb 17th-19th. Brilliant pub and B&B. The views from the pub and setting as a whole was fabulous. We arrived late on the Friday evening and were given a lovely warm welcome by the waiting staff. We were showed to our twin room which was really nicely furnished. Towels, Tv, tea and coffee, hairdryer...

Lovely setting and friendly staff but considering the quality of food in this region it was very disappointing pub food. It has potential and could be a very good place for pub food. The menu choice was ok. Would like to see more traditional pub food menu but the curry was very disappointing and the ham steak very dry. Nice...

I booked this hotel through Groupon and was so happy when we arrived! It's a beautiful traditional hotel with a real rustic feel. Our room was lovely, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was very clean and seemed recently upgraded as it was great! We enjoyed our sleep each night and the room was definitely fit for purpose.

The food was OK, not breathtaking, my homemade burger was decent but no better. Good selection of local ales and the pub was lovely and warm with very friendly staff. We had two dogs and a member of our group was in a wheelchair, the staff were very helpful and suggested we booked, it was a good location and we...

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us, It's great to hear you were looked after by our friendly team and that you enjoyed warm atmosphere and tasty local ales.

Staff were lovely. Can't do enough. Room was lovely. Very comfortable. Beautiful setting. Food could be beautiful but lacks refinement. Would definitely visit again. Looking forward to seeing if something for kids will be put in outside but it would still attract me back without them!
