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.

    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.

    Excellent food & service . Real ale very good

  • ((((( 21 May 2018 by Anita from Cardiff

    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.

    Very helpful, courteous staff. 10 out of 11 meals were very good but 1 fish n chips was served in a pool of oil/fat. A replacement was offered but refused and the meal was not billed to us. However, a bottle of prosecco which we hadn’t had was billed to us but removed from the bill when I pointed out the error.

    There was an irritatingly long delay of 45 minutes between ordering and arrival of the food (we skipped the starters). However, when it arrived, the quality and quantity was excellent. Desserts arrived quickly and were also delicious. Choice of real ale was limited, and wine expensive.

    We were disappointed on arrival to find that all the dog friendly area was full. I had particularly stated when I booked the table that we would be bringing our dog. As a result we were told that it is the dining area alone that can be booked where no dogs are permitted. So we placed our dog in the car and took a table in the dining room. It is not clear on your bookable service that no dogs are catered for. However we have seen reserved signs on tables beside the fireplace at previous visits. Disappointed.
