BUTTERFLIES BAR & KITCHEN
A unique gastropub situated in the heart of the World Heritage Town of Blaenavon. Our menu is inspired by local produce and some dishes our chef has picked up whilst travelling around the world. Our steaks are renowned in the area and we have just won an award for “best steaks and grills” in South East Wales and "Best Welsh Restaurant".

We have two restaurant areas; The Garden Room is a contemporary room with views onto the courtyard and our large walled garden. The Cwtch is part of the original pub built c1832 and has two feature fireplaces, one of which houses our beautiful log burner.

Many people refer to us as Blaenavon’s hidden gem - we have to agree!

This is Blaenavon’s best kept secret. The food was out of this world, service was fast and extremely good. The ambiance is lovely; Covid-19 measures were clearly addressed and information available on each table. The steaks looked amazing and my turkey dinner was fantastic. Desserts were also to die for - I recommend the lemon meringue cheesecake.

Went for food last Thursday.. food was lovely place was extremely full though background music playing on top of a small room in the back with 20 people in there most of them loud and drunk .. way to loud couldn’t have a conversation with my Mrs and had to shout at the lady to order my food.. food was lovely fp.. but wasn’t asked if everything was ok or if I wanted more drinks while there. Left with a headache

Had a lovely meal with my wife and son for my 50th birthday.
Food as always was wonderful, the service was also great although felt a little rushed, this is in no way a criticism though as we fully accept the current predicament due to corona virus.
Can't wait to come back again

We had four different starters which were plentiful and tasty followed by amazing steaks cooked to perfection. A couple of sides which were good enough to have been the main meals. Two of the party had a dessert which again large and scrumptious. The service is very friendly and attentive without making you feel in comfortable. Would highly recommend a visit to this gem of a restaurant
