Dined with family and the food was amazing and quick. Nice to have a choice with the kids the size of meal they can have under 5s or under 10s. Everything was fresh and homemade.

We had chosen the Rifleman Arms while we were in a group excursion. Table had been set for 17 just I front of the bar. No problem there because we were there for a meal and drinks. We had to wait a while for our food even though we had preordered. I had steak pie and chips as did a...

We spent a few days travelling around the Blaenavon area, and stayed centrally at The Rifleman's Arms. David and Jackie are delightful hosts .... our room was well appointed, quiet, clean and tidy, with a large bathroom and a comfortable bed. Breakfast was hearty and nicely cooked. At reasonable rates, we were very happy! Will stay here again next time...
