I like the fact that it isn't a chain restaurant and you can tell that from the little touches in the decor and the rustic menus instead of sticky and dirty plastic menus you see everywhere these days. The menu is vast and... More

Sunday lunch here was lovely as ever, have tried a few things from the week menu too and everything has been delicious. It's the perfect mix of luxury/gourmet/home cooked food. The service has always been very friendly and helpful too. The Sunday menu is 5 courses for £15.95, two of those courses are tea/coffee and a cheeseboard. My only comment... More

The whole experience was fabulous! The food was mouthwatering, presentation was amazing and the service was even better. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. I will be defiantly coming back again, special thanks to Dayne and Curtis for being so welcoming. It's no exaggeration to say that's it's probably one of the best Sunday lunches I've ever had. Top job... More

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 menu offers traditional classics and À la carte dishes with a continental flavour. Our blackboard is very popular and offers fresh, seasonal dishes to suit all tastes. We have two restaurant areas; the garden restaurant is a contemporary room with oak furniture, leather chairs and views onto the patio.

We even grow some of our own produce to use in the kitchen.
