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 were a party of four and dined with you last Saturday evening. We all chose to have three courses, and I must say we were not disapointed. From the first course through to the desert the food was excelant. My main course was the rib eye steak and was superb. On arrival we were shown to our table in a cosy corner with an open fire which provided a nice ambience. Our waitress who I think was called Tess provided splendid service both with our food and drinks which saved us trips to the bar. All in all it was an excellent night which we all thoroughly enjoyed and will definitely return.

    Have been wining and dining here for 50 years or more and obviously seen off numerous landlords and managers. I was disappointed at the last refurbishment which totally did away with very old photographs of Caerphilly and district and completely obliterated all references to Cas5le Morgraug which is only a few hundred metres away, indeed virtually none of the staff no of its existence!!!!!!!
    The quality of food has improved, mushroom starter for example is one of the best in CARDIFF, selection of drinks is adequate but I do feel more staff should be in evidence on Saturdays and Sundays, week days the staffing seems adequate.

    Forgot to ring up & book so did it with ease from my iPad. We arrived early but our table was waiting. Lovely fire burning. I booked for 4 adults & a small child. We all had different meals, everyone cleaned their plates, it was delicious. The deserts were fab, took a while to decide & once again they didn't disappoint. The staff were friendly & we were served within a reasonable time

    Food was excellent and the service was great. Hunters chicken, scampi and puff pastry topped pie were delicious. Deserts were lovely too.
