Amazing service and delicious food. When we arrived I explained that my son was dairy free and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. A three course dairy free meal is a rare find! Well done Butterflies - we'll be back!

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.
