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.

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

    Overall I thought the service was slow. My daughters steak was asked medium to well but was burnt so the manger changed the mean to fish and chips as it wouldn't take so long. The chips were chunky however, my father seemed to have a lot of smaller chips (the ends). Also, food could of been a little hotter. At the end it took a long time to pay the bill as there was no connection where we were.

    My friend and I arrived early for a drink in the beer garden. On arrival I presented the bar manager with my email for a free bar snack for signing up to their website to be told they were not doing bar snacks that day, no explanation. I was told to use on my next visit , even when I said I might not be back there was no reply. We had the mushrooms to start. Then steak pie for main which was very nice although our food was going cold as we waiting for more cutlery. Staff seemed to be rushing about and not greatly happy. It was an ok experience not sure if id come back .
