Rather than sing our own praises we’ve pulled together just a small selection of reviews left on tripadvisor by some of our grateful clients.

If you have any quiries please feel free to get in touch.

“Excellent meal”

We booked here again for the 2nd time on the request of our friends we had previously taken here for dinner….We were not diappointed.
The atmosphere is a traditional English pub with all the usual charms…log fire/ low beamed ceiling, and the locals using the bar for a well deserved pint on what was a very warm belated Summer’s evening.
The food was as good as we remembered from before…..good sized portions and nicely presented and served by very polite courteous staff.

We will be back when we are staying at out time share at Slaley Hall only 5 minutes away.


I stayed for 4 nights with my wife and a friend, We were immediately made to feel very welcome and we enjoyed ALL Meals which were very well prepared and presented(We now have to diet)
The staff were amazing and we were made to feel like long lost friends. Our party were all over 70yrs old and we came away completely rejuvenated. The experience we had was a delight and we will most certainly return to this excellent establishment

“Lovely, welcoming country pub.”

Called in here for lunch today. Greeted warmly by the staff. Food was excellent, and they have a brilliant coffee machine. We will definitely return when we are in that area. Whole experience was first class, and placed in beautiful surroundings too. What more could you wish for?

“Well worth a visit”

We were told that this pub was worth a visit and how right it turned out to be. It is how a country pub should be,quaint with good service from everyone in the pub. The beer is good and the food cannot be faulted in any way,from price to amount to speed of service,all excellent.

“Great friendly service, superb accomodation, great views”

This B and B is surrounded by views over stunning countryside. The pub below is characterful and snug serving some lovely food with a great selection of beverages. I stayed here for two nights and was very impressed with my room, which had great furniture, nice complementary drinks etc and a lovely bathroom. I have travelled extensively and have stayed in a lot of B and B’s for work – this is one of the very few places I have judged clean enough to take a bath!! Staff were incredibly welcoming and the breakfast menu is extensive and high quality. Blown away after having read poor reviews on here. The only minor negative was a few creaky floorboards – it caused me no problems and what do you expect in a traditional building – I slept like a baby.

“Good Food”

Found this pub while staying at Slaley Hall (10 min drive).
The pub was very friendly and welcoming. The food was freshly cooked and tasted wonderful. I can recommend the signature beef wellington. Nothing was too much trouble and we left feeling very full.
Would recommend to anybody and we will be going back for a meal soon.

“Great meal”

Called in for lunch mid week. Took a little while to arrive, but worth the wait. Great food and friendly staff. Playgound a great distraction for kids. Beer well chosen and very well kept.

    Fantastic food in a fantastic setting.

    Went up to the Traveller’s Rest for Sunday Lunch with the family. This is the first time we have been there and on arrival immediately felt at home. This is a warm and cosy environment and the staff match this with a friendly smile. The eating are is well set out and modern but has that country pub authentic rustic feel. The food was above my expectations and quite simply felt as though I was at home. All the food was cooked from fresh and seasoned wonderfully. The meat was cooked to perfection and the portion size was more than enough for any hearty eater. Saving the best till last was the final bill, for a family of 5 including drinks and couple of desserts the bill was around £60. Unbelievable. I will be recommending this to all my friends and family and I am already looking at returning on another day to sample the bar meal menu. Five stars for a superb country pub.
