Dating back to 1864, The Travellers Rest – Caerphilly boasts a uniquely beautiful situation, on Caerphilly Mountain, in the Welsh Valleys. Serving well-loved British pub cuisine, the building has a vintage thatched roof, with an ornate mirror over the grand, stone hearth. You can enjoy the food and incredible views from the al fresco dining area in summer, or from the plush, comfy chairs inside.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Travellers Rest menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Travellers Rest ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Offering stunning views from Caerphilly Moutain, The Travellers Rest is only 4 minutes’ drive from Caerphilly.

    Overall a nice meal. The restaurant was busy and it took a while to get my table and then be served. We had Sunday lunch lamb and turkey, the food was tasty but I would have liked more gravy. I would have asked but staff were really busy, so made do. I would go back but maybe earlier (our booking was for around 2pm-thought it would be less busy then).

    Sunday roast was very tasty (but might have been a little hotter). Decor was pleasant and clean, staff were friendly and helpful, but not to be found when we wished to pay!

    Outstanding meal. The prawn and avocado starter was excellent and the ham hock is to be recommended. A lovely evening was had by all. Booking a table In advance for Saturday is recommended.
