While Thornhill in South Wales has developed as a relatively modern town, The Traveller's Rest boasts a rich history dating back to the 1800s. Historical records confirm that it received its inaugural licence in 1864. A distinctive aspect of this establishment is its resilience, as it remained operational during the challenging times of the Second World War. Mr. George Lightfoot presided over the pub during the wartime era, and he continued to do so until 1971, contributing to the enduring legacy of this remarkable establishment. Today, it is a proud member of the Vintage Inns dining chain.

The Traveller's Rest presents menus that pay homage to hearty classics and cherished country pub favourites, showcasing the traditional Vintage Inns style. You'll encounter timeless dishes like the irresistible steak and mushroom pie and the beloved beer-battered fish and chips. For those seeking a more adventurous culinary experience, there are seasonal surprises to delight your taste buds with unique flavours.

The all-day menu features an array of British favourites, including smoked mackerel pate with horseradish creme fraiche and toast, and slow-roasted tomato arancini. There's also an oven-baked chicken breast served on a bed of spinach, topped with a wild mushroom and garlic sauce, streaky bacon, and melted mozzarella, accompanied by skin-on fries.

Sundays offer a perfect way to wrap up your week with wholesome food and cherished company. From 12pm, you can select from a variety of Sunday roast options. Whether you prefer succulent beef, tender slow-cooked pork belly, or a classic turkey breast, each dish comes with a Yorkshire pudding and generous portions of perfectly seasoned garlic and thyme roast potatoes, roasted carrots, crisp green beans, broccoli, honey-glazed parsnips, and, of course, rich, flavorful gravy.
