Had a great curry in this pub restaurant. A little bit expensive in comparison to other pubs' food, but the quality of this food was above average compared to other typical pub restaurants.
The fireplaces were a welcome warm respite during a cold and wet Lake District Autumn.
The staff were very friendly. It is true that they were all foreign, of probable Eastern European origin, and had rather broken English. However, they were courteous and helpful, and other reviews on this site that appear to dismiss them, purely because of their foreign origin, are simply xenophobic.

We were staying in Grasmere and ate here every night (4 nights)so that says it all really.Home-made burger was great,lamb shank delicious and perfectly cooked,a very nice chicken dish and the best steak I've had for years.Portions ample too.Staff are excellent and the service was quick without being rushed even though they were very busy on Saturday night

5 of us ate at this restaurant every night for a week and had breakfast. The steaks are great and breakfast very good. Jullian the manager was very accommodating and really made our time there special. Well recommended. We will be booking for next year.

Yet another lovely visit to the Travellers Rest the food again was delicious. The fillet steak was to die for and the Salmon was also fab. The staff were as always smiling and seem happy and pleasant as usual. This has become by far out most favourite eating place in Grasmere and we return again and again and you will see us on our return in December. LOOK FORWARD TO IT!!!!! Bye for now

We stopped here to celebrate the fact that I'd been offered a new job. Lovely looking pub that looks a bit better on the outside than the inside. Think this is because it is predominantly a restaurant and not a bar. We ordered from the two courses for £16 menu and had some very nice food but the presentation was a bit 1980's.

Overall it was a good experience and we would go back, but with the amount of competition in the lakes thought it would have been better.
