Restaurant description

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 Thornhill, Cardiff is only 4 minutes’ drive from Caerphilly.

    First table we were shown to was dark and in a very small area. The waitress was excellent she moved us to another table as soon as I asked. The Sunday roast was disappointing, we had eaten here in the past a year ago and the food was first class. This time though Beef was tough, Belly Pork was superb, Turkey was very good but all vegetables looked like a mash on top of cabbage. Roast Potatoes were small frozen ones. The waitress again though checked thoroughly for all signs of Gluten to ensure I had gluten free meal. Apple Pie for dessert was excellent.

    We had a very enjoyable evening the food was very good especially the weekend menu which included a bottle of wine. The service was a tad slow but in their defense they were very busy and we were not in a hurry.

    Very welcoming our meals were first class, really enjoyable. The service was friendly and very efficient. Everyone enjoyed their meals (nothing left on the plates), the staff were patient and friendly, couldn't be better. We were a party of 17 (3 people were unable to come) and the following day they all said how much they had enjoyed their meal and will definitely come again. It was a special birthday lunch and the staff made all the more memorable.
