Came for the Christmas lunch ( as it was so good last year!) and wasn't disappointed! The welcome as always was warm and friendly. The staff are very professional and the young lady behind the bar is delightful ! Our food was delicious and the lemon possett dessert is to die for! For various reasons we haven't been for a...

It's been a couple of years since we visited the Butchers and we called in this week for lunch. OMG the duck, I mean really, it was superb. My wife had a Christmas lunch, turkey with all the trimmings and she said it was lovely too and there was lots of it. As usual, the staff were great and welcoming,... More

I have been coming to the Butchers for decades and throughout the years we have consistently had excellent service and food. The choice at the Butchers Arms has always been extensive, you have a two sided main menu , a daily specials menu that I believe is split into day and night (although I may not be right about that)...

Today had another lovely meal at The Butchers, Llanddarog. Nothing is too much trouble, the owners are so friendly and helpful - I have a dairy allergy & instead of being told that I couldn't have the food of my choice (as usually happens to me in other places) the chef made sure I could have a three course delicious...

We came to The Butchers as part of a large group that I organised for our Christmas 'do' and I am very pleased to say that it was a huge success. It's always a worry when you have to organise a party on behalf of other people- it's hard to please 15+ people, but please us the Butchers Arms did.... More

A beautiful evening meal with great company in a delightful pub. There is nowhere else around that can give you good home made cooking & good portions at a reasonable price. We travel from Swansea to come here and it is always worth the travel. Excellent all around.

We recently went to The Butchers Arms for lunch, it wasn't planned it was a casual pop in on the way back from town and we ended up having food from the Christmas specials menu.... what started as a casual pop in turned into a fantastic pre Christmas Christmas dinner. The beautiful pub had been tastefully decorated for Christmas, soft... More

It's a shame that such a popular location has lost its appeal and mojo. Food was very bland and over expensive for what you get but more concerning is the attitude and poor customer relations being demonstrated by the restaraunt manageress. We would go as far as saying the attitude witnessed was degrading,rude and totally unacceptable....I agree the customer is... More

What can I say that I haven't said before......... Went there recently, excellent quality and taste with massive portion sizes (which is unusual these days and nice to see!) I had the gammon which came with onion rings, mushrooms and peas and I opted with the chips. As ever with the Butchers it's nice to have a decent quality, home... More
