The Travellers Rest, situated 4 miles from Exeter on the old A30, is a former 16th-century Devonshire Coaching house, a regular meeting place for genteel folk whom were travelling back and forth between London and Cornwall - some original features still remain today. There is one long bar with a mixture of furniture, and a separate restaurant area. Homemade food made from locally sourced produce is available lunchtime and evenings, and from 12-7pm Sundays when a carvery is on offer. It is dog friendly, a small range of doggie treats are available from behind the bar; families welcome. A selection of 'Traditional Sweets' in Jars...served in a paper bag are available for all kids - big ones included! There is ample parking and a large garden area with a lovely brook babbling away in the background. One guest ale is normally available, as far as possible from Devon and Cornwall Breweries such as Otter or St.Austell. Pub may close earlier if very quiet.
