For £9.95 the lunch deal of two courses of freshly cooked hearty proper food was fab. I would eat there lots and lots if I was a local! Well done

The Travellers Rest is a beautiful Cornish village pub nestled between Mawgan Porth and Watergate Bay beaches, just a mile away from Newquay Airport. This pub is ideally located to relax and unwind as you take in the sights of the North Cornwall coast. Dating back to the 17th Century the pub has a cosy, friendly atmosphere and a fantastic range of the finest beers, ciders, spirits, wines and coffee. Our menu changes on a regular basis depending on what produce we get in from our local suppliers. We are passionate about great quality, home cooked, locally sourced , seasonal fresh food. At the heart of our pub you'll find our team. Its our mission to ensure each and every one of our customers, including children and pooches feel welcome and relaxed. ​ Martin, Natalie, and the Team at the Travellers look forward to welcoming you.
