Butterflies Bar & Kitchen
The historic Butterflies Bar & Kitchen is a hidden gem in the beautiful world heritage town of Blaenavon. Dating back to around 1832, this cosy haunt combines attractive traditional features including two fireplaces and an abundance of homely, welcoming touches. On rainy days the Cwtch is the perfect place to warm up with a pint of ale and a tasty meal. Tuck into hearty pub classics like steak, ale and caramelised onion pie or richly aromatic vegan penang curry. In fairer weather why not take a seat in the light and airy Garden Room, which looks directly out over the pleasant courtyard, or perhaps in the beautiful walled garden? An enchanting spot, the verdant patio garden is a vision of picturesque lanterns, bunting, hanging baskets of streaming vines and brightly flowering geraniums.
If you don’t fancy one of the popular pub favourites, the menu also boasts the likes of slow-cooked pork belly, and duo of Welsh venison with braised red cabbage and rich red wine reduction. The menu also features a much-lauded selection of steaks, ranging from tender 8oz fillet to succulent 20oz Chateaubriand. The menus are designed to make the most of seasonal local produce, taking inspiration from the chef’s travels around the world.
