Butterflies Bar & Kitchen
Minimal dining spaces and exposed brick walls make up the calm interior of Butterflies Bar & Kitchen. Don’t be fooled by the unassuming exterior – Butterflies offers a winning mix of a relaxed ambience, refined dining and a distinctly stylish approach to running a restaurant.
Situated within the World Heritage Site of Blaenavon and in the historic county of Monmouthshire, Butterflies Bar & Kitchen is also in close proximity to an historic railway and the National Coal Museum. A cultural visit to this fascinating area, rich in history and brilliant attractions, should be rounded off with dinner at Butterflies.
True to the gastropub tradition, the restaurant kitchen is dedicated to delivering top-notch, perfectly presented British food. The menu pays homage to classic pub food, and all the favourites are listed. Start with the stunning baked goat’s cheese; gorgeously creamy and topped with a layer of caramelised red onion for perfectly balanced flavour combinations. A final flourish of salad leaves, sliced tomatoes and balsamic reduction creates a symmetrical dish that’s almost too pretty to eat. A highly recommended main course features sea bass fillets expertly seared and finished with salted crisp skin.
Far from serving simple pub grub, Butterflies Bar & Kitchen has transformed the familiar into something extra-special, adding interesting touches and refreshing flavours with aesthetics in mind.
