To: The New Owners of Traveller's Rest

Please re-open The Traveller's Rest Pub, Newtown

Please re-open The Traveller's Rest Pub, Newtown

We ask the new owners to re-open the Traveller's Rest, Newtown as a public house.

Why is this important?

There has been a pub on this site since the early 1800 and is the last remaining pub in the village of Newtown. We have no shops, doctor or even a bus service. It was a viable business and a popular meeting place. It has been used by many, including yourselves, and its closure has been upsetting to us. You are in the entertainment industry and understand the value of social interaction, please re-open the pub so we can once again come together and enjoy the company of friends and visitors in its warm, convivial atmosphere.

How it will be delivered

In person

Newtown, Fareham

Reasons for signing

  • Iv spent many a lovely evening at this pub with my family that lived at Shoothill Lodge. Sadly , my daughter died in 2012, but she loved that pub and the meals we had before, and during her chemo treatment. The Travelers Rest , being there in those lovely surroundings made us feel like a normal family again if only for a few hours. , you never know what’s round the corner, I hope it’s a place just like The Travelers Rest .
  • Great local venue !
  • The Traveller's Rest disappearance is something to be mourned. It is the heartbeat of a community. When any traditional British pub dies, a little part of our collective national soul vanishes. Research from Oxford University published in 201, showed people with a good pub close to them are “significantly” happier, have more friends, better life satisfaction, and are more likely to drink in “moderation”.
