A unique gastropub situated in the heart of the World Heritage Town of Blaenavon. Our menu is inspired by local produce and some dishes our chef has picked up whilst travelling around the world. Our steaks are renowned in the area and we have just won an award for “best steaks and grills” in South East Wales. We have two restaurant areas; The Garden Room is a contemporary room with views onto the courtyard and our large walled garden. The Cwtch is part of the original pub built c1832 and has two feature fireplaces, one of which houses our beautiful log burner. Many people refer to us as Blaenavon’s hidden gem - we have to agree!
