A traditional Welsh country pub - from original oak beams, cosy rooms & roaring fire to homemade locally sourced ingredients & Welsh speaking staff. A True taste of Wales!David & Mavis have owned The Butchers for 30 years and have built up a good reputation for serving quality homemade food at a reasonable price. The old Stable block will be open to overnight guests in August 2012
