..Even on what was one of the quietest days of the post Christmas period the owners did not compromise on heating or the freshness and high standard of the food. Being such an ancient pub it must be difficult to keep it so warm. Our lunch, as usual, was first class. My ham salad was so fresh and beautifully presented... More

Fantastic food along with excellent service as always. Myself, partner and 7 year old son visit this restaurant regularly as we live in Llanddarog and we are never disappointed, only amazed by the delicious meals that they continue to deliver. The childrens meals are all made from the best produce, full of nutrients as well as being really tasty. You... More

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)...

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
