We wanted to treat our grandchildren and found that this 'pub' had the best sundaes. Grandpa even had one. Yummy!!!!! and the kids loved it too.

it's a pub where you order food at the counter rather than a restaurant but once done sit down and enjoy, good selection of beers and soft drinks and decent menu at reasonable prices. The staff are friendly and work quickly whilst being prepared to...More

We recently held a wake here and the staff were excellent. Very understanding and helpful in difficult circumstances. Very reasonable prices and I can't comment on the food as I didn't have any.

Went here 15/9/17. Food, reasonable. Very busy pub. Always lots of kids about, definitely a family pub. reasonably priced meals and drinks. Been here lots of times and it's nearly always manic but, a very sociable environment.

We go to the Travellers Rest quite often as the prices are amazing, and the food is actually really pleasant. The waiting time is normally quite long, like 30-45 minutes. The pub is kid friendly which is a nice thing but it's sometimes really quite...More
