Mid-week I knew that both restaurants in town will stop cooking early if there is no trade, so it was with some trepidation that I asked at about 8:45pm, "any chance of a quick table for one"? And I'm in! I was hoping the 'bang-bang...More

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.
