Went to Butterflies for an Easter themed afternoon tea today and loved it, the rooms had been tastefully decorated in Easter Bunting and decorations and the cake stands were also came with cute Easter touches. The food was delicious and we were able to take the cakes we couldn't eat home with us. The children each had an Easter egg... More

Beautiful food, charming premises, friendly staff. Can't fault anything. Skipped the starters as I knew I wanted a dessert, but my boyfriend indulged in a prawn starter that came to the table on fire! The whole table ordered steaks and there wasn't a single complaint - excluding my mother, who didn't want hers to end! Dessert was wonderful, an Eton... More

Table was booked for 7pm for a table of 8. We told that due to overbooking, that their would be a delay of 30-45 minutes. Over 2 hours later we got our food. My order came with onion rings. But because it was late, they had run out. So I was served with extra mushrooms....not asked. On the night prices... More

I've been to many afternoon teas but none of them compared to this one. There was such a wide variety of different delicious cakes and sandwiches. The staff were friendly and attentive and could not fault the afternoon at all.

Visited for tapas last night and the food, service and atmosphere was amazing. We were served freshly baked bread when we arrived at our table which was cut by a lovey young waiter. We all ordered different dishes to sample as much as the menu as possible. The flavours of ALL dishes were beautiful but the stand out dish was... More

We have been to Butterflies over many times over the intervening years and have seen 3 different managers/staff. The restaurant gets better and better. Last night was the 2nd Tapas night and it was very successful. Food was delicious and great value. Lots of choice and all served piping hot. It's a small restaurant/bar, and all staff are professional and... More

Butterflies Restaurant is situated in the heart of the World Heritage Town of Blaenavon. 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 food reflects our heritage with many local dishes - Welsh lamb is the best in the world after all. Our two restaurant areas both have unique features, The Cwtch has an log burner set in a 19th century fireplace and the Garden Room as the name suggests offers views onto the courtyard and large walled garden. Our garden offers a South facing terrace which becomes a sun trap during the summer months with our greenhouse packed with tomatoes, cucumbers, chilies and other delights to use in the kitchen.
