The Travellers Rest really does deserve to be busier! Lovely food and a cheerful, friendly owner who is always happy to chat. Beats some other of our local eateries hands down!

The drinks are over priced the landlord sits in the pub having ago at anyone who he does not like. What's the point of having a dart board if you don't let anyone use it!!!!!
