It is with great sadness we have called last orders in all our pubs for the time being to support the fight against COVID-19. But don’t worry, we are busy working on opening our doors again with the safety of our teams and customers as our number one priority. While we continue to follow government guidelines, we’re getting excited for the day we can meet again and raise a glass in the pub.

Until then, stay safe, and don’t forget us!

The Travellers Rest



While our pubs are closed, we’ve decided to open a virtual pub, The Lock Inn. We know many of our customers are feeling cut-off from their friends and for some a visit to the pub is the only social contact they will have in a day. The Lock Inn aims to help tackle loneliness and isolation by offering activities and entertainment to encourage interaction. We’re starting with a WEEKLY INTERACTIVE QUIZ on Wednesdays at 6pm and ROCK AND ROLL BINGO every Friday at the same time, with more events and community support activities planned over the coming weeks.

Welcome to the

Travellers Rest


An 18th century former halfway house The Travellers Rest is situated in the rural Nottinghamshire village of Mapperley flanked on all sides by Mapperley Plains offering panoramic views across gently undulating fields. With its open plan layout exposed beams and three open log fires which are lit during the winter months the pub has retained its cosy olde worlde appeal.And during the summer diners and drinkers alike love to linger a while in the wide open beer garden enjoying a bottle of fine wine or glass of cask ale surrounded by the pretty Nottinghamshire countryside.The pub backs onto Lambley Dumbles a pretty woodland dell where walkers can follow trickling streams that meander through patchwork fields ancient trees and gurgling brooks. It's a hidden gem so quiet and tranquil yet just a few miles from the hustle and bustle of Nottingham city centre. 5 minutes down the road is Bestwood Country Park 650 acres of lakeland wildflower meadows and ancient woodland while the legendary Sherwood Forest is just 30 minutes in the car. Here walkers can wander amongst some of the oldest trees in Europe including the 900-year-old Major Oak and immerse themselves in the legend of Britain's most famous outlaw Robin Hood.And afterwards head back to Mapperley Plains to unwind and savour sumptuous pub food in the historic Traveller's Rest pub.
