A nice friendly pub that is a stone throw away from Rudding Park. It serves a lovely Sunday Roast Dinner that certainly fills a gap. The pub is dog friendly and is very quaint yet snug. It has a lovely atmosphere about it and we will certainly be returning.

We came across this pub whilst staying at the camp site and we're glad we did. First class and the food was amazing. Gammon was succulent and cooked the way we like it. Steak pie was sublime. The pub is very old but inside was beautiful and clean. The car park was packed out but we walked a short way... More

We saw the sign for the Travellers Rest and followed it up a small country road. The pub itself was quaint and old fashioned with little nooks and crannies. We only wanted a snack so ordered a soup for me and a sandwich for my partner. The sandwich arrived on a large wooden platter - thick fresh brown bread with... More

This is a beautiful pub with lovely beer garden. I really wanted the food to be as good. It was not bad but not great. We had starters, main meal and 2 drinks and came to £55. Now mixed grill is the most expensive meal and plate looks huge. However not an awful lot of meat. Service very good and... More

Lovely little pub with great food and good service. It's also great that dogs are welcome in certain areas so nice after a dog walk.

Been here a few times when visiting family in Harrogate, so it seemed obvious to book here for a treat for my Mum. I had booked in a few weeks earlier and seemed like it was a good job I did, as the place was heaving when we got there. Regardless of that, the staff were still very attentive and... More

We visited Travellers Rest Pub last summer on a Saturday afternoon. We popped in to grab a sandwich and a drink as it was a nice day and we wanted to sit out in the sun. Having really enjoyed our experience the first time, we decided to book a table for 2 mums on mothers day. The four of us... More

Having been here before,not dined but seen quality and portion size(fish and chips) we were keen to dine here. What a disappointment! The quality was excellent but portion size abismal,even the steak pie was smaller.The reason given was that the supplier had been changed?? Is this a good reason for serving a small fish that is described as 'giant' and... More

Very friendly staff on arrival, with pleasant atmosphere,such a small country pub with added on modern conservatory.The main pub is dog friendly.It was lovely to see the kites flying around in the Crimple valley.The food was good,especially the ploughmans lunch.It is a good idea to have smaller portions of fish and chips and steak pie for older members.Only negative comment...

The Traveller’s Rest dates from the middle of the 17th Century and offers fantastic views over Crimple Valley, and for those twitchers amongst us don't forget all the Red Kites we have flying by and the white crow that roosts in the tree opposite. This quaint, rural pub is one of two pubs on the famous 'Ringway Walk' around Harrogate which runs along the private lane where the Traveller's Rest is situated. We are a stone's throw from the affluent spa town of Harrogate so you have the best of both worlds. The interior boasts old wooden beams, a stoned floor area and also a light airy conservatory which leads to the garden area. This is a perfect place for a celebration or get together for a function. The enviable position of the Traveller’s Rest is what makes it a very special destination, for a lovely meal or relaxing drink of traditional beer or glass of wine. We welcome local regulars, ladies who lunch and, given the walks around us, muddy boots and dogs! We even provide water bowls for our four legged friends.
