Had Sunday lunch today with my son. We had the Lamb and Beef both were excellent. Good variety of vegetables and more than enough for two. The staff led by Hayley were as always polite and helpful. Service was faultless. Would recommend a visit.

Have visited and eaten on 2 occasions and I must say that the dining experiences have been 1st class. Lovely food, lovely staff and a hugely welcoming ambience. Just wish I lived a little nearer.

A local, friendly, cosy and tasty “go to” place for food, a chat and a quiz. Need we say more?! A little hard to find the first time though!

Butterflies Restaurant is situated in the heart of the World Heritage Town of Blaenavon. We are proud to be a part of the Blaenavon story, we have Big Pit on our doorstep and Blaenavon Ironworks is within walking distance. Our food reflects our heritage with many local dishes - Welsh lamb is the best in the world after all. Our two restaurant areas both have unique features, The Cwtch has an log burner set in a 19th century fireplace and the Garden Room as the name suggests offers views onto the courtyard and large walled garden. Our garden offers a South facing terrace which becomes a sun trap during the summer months with our greenhouse packed with tomatoes, cucumbers, chilies and other delights to use in the kitchen.
