Cambridge | The Traveller's Rest Beefeater

 When the email dropped into my inbox, I was instantly excited to visit The Traveller's Rest Beefeater in Cambridge. I'm always looking for new places to try and I was really excited to see what this newly refurbished Beefeater had to offer.

Situated not far from the city centre, The Traveller's Rest is the perfect place for a family dinner. It was spacious and modern whilst also feeling very homely, which I really love in a restaurant. The modern interior creates a real sense of being able to relax and enjoy the meal which we certainly did.

As we arrived a little early, we settled into the bar with a diet pepsi (unlimited, my favourite kind of pepsi!) each and the menu to peruse. We'd arrived a little early due to our previous appointment finishing sooner than we had expected but we were happy to wait in the spacious bar. It wasn't long before our table was ready which was a good job because we were both starving, especially as the food smelt so good.

We were led to our table which was tucked away near the kitchen which I really liked. You felt the buzz of the restaurant but it also felt private enough so you could really enjoy your company which can sometimes be difficult in chain restaurants because of how close you are to other tables. In The Traveller's Rest, this was far from the case and it was something both Dan and I really liked about the restaurant.

 For our starter, we ordered The Beefeater Sharing Platter. We wanted to order something so we could try a variety of different dishes, and we were so pleased we did! For £10.99 you get a huge selection of different starters from minced pork and beef kofta to breaded crispy flat cap mushrooms. Each of the separate dishes were delicious, and Dan was so pleased as we'd finally found a sharing platter we would both like. 

Whilst we both felt very full, we eagerly awaited our mains. Dan had ordered the steak, whilst I opted for the paprika chicken! The thing that excited us both the most though, was the fact that our meals were served with triple cooked chips. Even better? Beefeater are offering customers UNLIMITED triple cooked chips. Whilst we were too full to take full advantage of this amazing deal, we'll definitely save ourselves next time so we can order some more. They were, as triple cooked chips always are, delicious!

The Traveller's Rest is the perfect restaurant for a family meal. With it's modern and relaxed feel, it's the ideal place to celebrate a grandparent's birthday, or for a weekend treat. Having never been to a Beefeater before, I was so impressed and I'll definitely be going back for another meal - hopefully with more of my family in tow!

Have you ever been to a Beefeater?

I was kindly given a voucher to pay for our meal at the Beefeater, in exchange for a feature on my blog.

  2. This restaurant looks so nice. I've never had triple cooked chips, what are they like?


    1. They are delicious! I can't describe them really but they are so tasty because they are cooked more than one so they are super crunchy but also super soft...xxxx
