Is there anything better than a costal walk followed by food and a drink under the sunshine in a pub garden?
Well we think not, so we headed over to the beautiful The Travellers Rest based in Mawgan Porth after a wonderful coastal stroll.
We spoke to the owners Natalie and Martin who said that they took over the Travellers in November 2016 after moving to Cornwall from Edinburgh where they spent 8 years in hotel management. Our families had already moved to Cornwall and we always knew that we’d like to move here eventually. We fell in love with the pub as customers and would always visit when down on holiday.
Natalie continued that in June 2016, she spent 6 weeks in Cornwall and having driven passed the Travellers thought to myself it ever came up for lease then we would go for it. Two days later we received a newsletter from St Austell Brewery with available pub tenancies which featured the Travellers. We are firm believers that everything happens for a reason so went through the application process and haven’t looked back since.
What wonderful people to take over a well established pub and create such wonderful food, whilst visiting Travellers Rest I sat in the sunshine drinking a Tarquins and tonic before heading inside for food. I had the two dishes which are much loved favourites of the customers who come to the pub, The Calamari followed by the Teriyaki Beef which were both packed full of flavour and cooked perfectly.
At the Travellers Rest they aim to provide a warm and friendly welcome, a relaxed atmosphere, serving home cooked dishes that have wherever possible been created from locally sourced produce.
They are able to cater for dietary requirements including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free meals. As well as being dog friendly and catering for families/
They also like us love their live music and have at least one band night a month as well as acoustic music every other Sunday.
You’ll find them serving up and delicious carvery on a Sunday served 12-3pm. They have extra plus sides to their venue of Free parking, free Wifi and a beer garden perfect for those summer days.
Situated out on Godrevy towans is the beautiful The Rockpool whether you fancy a coffee to something a little fancy or a just a sandwich they cater to all needs.
We had a catch up and photo shoot with them last week to show off their newly refurbished back room ready for live bands, open mic nights creating a really relaxed atmosphere to accompany their brilliant menu. They present a surf vibe styled interior teamed with fresh fish dishes from the local Cornish seas. In the sunnier months the outside areas are a wonderful addition to this brilliant place, with the view of the sea out of the back.
If you fancy a surf lesson or you just simply need to hire equipment to work up and appetite situated next to them is Gwithian Academy of Surfing
They have Boca 45 & Ash Walker playing this weekend, its one not to be missed: https://www.facebook.com/events/2008864842713900/
