user reviews of the Travellers Rest, Patchway

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Now, this pub was dire until recently. It was (still is in theory) a "Hungry Horse" branded establishment, which is Greene King's budget family food range of pubs. It was bright, kitch and plasticky with large portions of bland, artery-clogging food at cheap prices.

However, the place has just undergone a refurbishment and it looks like they've all but completely lost the "Hungry Horse" brand. Some colleagues and I were actually invited there for the pre-re-opening trial night (which to be fair meant we got free food and no doubt undue attention lavished on us!). I was actually really impressed!

The pub as a whole as gone much more relaxed, the lighting is much cosier and the decor is fab - kind of a bold, contemporary victoriana, with flocked wallpaper and big, comfy cubicles. There's now a full bar near the front of the pub, with normal pub seating - it feels a lot less like a restaurant holding area than it used to. There are the usual Greene King and other ales on handpump which were well kept, but maybe not surprising if they were all new lines / kegs.

The food was probably the best bit though - I had sizzling BBQ duck and it was lovely - big portions which came with lots of roast vegetables, caramelised onion and spiced fries, and would have cost me about �9 if we were paying.

I'll try and visit again on a normal night before long, but there is a definite improvement.

A once great community local-20 or so years ago.Now a 'branded',plastic representation of Greene King.It was a Courage House full of 'characters':the Crokers,the grahams,the Londi and many more.
