The location here is fab – on the eastern slopes of Frodsham Hill looking eastwards, with wide vistas over the Cheshire Plain towards Manchester, The Pennines and The Peaks. The Travellers Rest seemed initially more restaurant than pub and we were all starving and looking forward to some good grub; we were not disappointed.
The choice of three menus ranged from sandwiches, to pub favourites and a beautiful sounding A La Carte option offering in-season exotic dishes such as pan-fried sea bass with wild mushroom risotto scented with white truffle oil! Our family played it safe. The kids settled on sandwiches – grilled cajun chicken and classic BLT – which came with a small portion of fries. We chose fish and chips plus steak and ale pie, both homemade, ample and bursting with flavour.
The restaurant was busy, friendly and accommodating. The service was a little slow for our liking, but that would not put us off going again. It’s clearly very popular, and would be an ideal choice following a visit to nearby Manley Mere or Delamere Forest.
