Description: 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!

After reading the rave reviews we thought we could not go wrong! To be honest it was okay and reasonably priced. The pie we had like most places was a flaky pastry top. Some we underdone. The service was a little hit and miss and there was a weird delay with desserts. The ping of a microwave is always an omen that makes us anxious. But the price was reasonable so in some ways go with the knowledge that it will be an okay meal for a reasonable price. For us the place was a little grubby and it’s location put us off. We would not go back.

This has to be my favourite place to eat! Whatever you fancy they will 100% deliver.
As steak lovers they do the most amazing menu and the food is exceptional. We live locally so we often pop by for Sunday lunch and you just can't go wrong. Their three course menu caters for everyone and is outstanding value for money, I just couldn't recommend this lovely place enough. As well as the food being amazing the staff are lovely and very accommodating!

Excellent food and one of the best restaurants for miles around, the steaks are amazing and the presentation knocks spots off other places.

The service is always welcoming and there’s always a lovely atmosphere.
