Found this place a few years ago, and have visited many times, it is a gorgeous place to go to for food as everything is homemade, there's plenty of choice, the specials are lovely, as soon as you walk in there's an open wood fire, the atmosphere is great and friendly staff. It's a must visit as food is absolutely... More

I use Tripadvisor all the time when I'm travelling around the UK with work. I like my food!! So, I found this fantastic place today on my way to Carmarthen. It's so close to the M4 but feels like another world. The food was superb and I was only sorry that I couldn't eat there more often. Check it out...it's... More

Four of us had the £15 3-course offer for a Friday lunch. they could have been slacking off as it was far from full, but they certainly did not. Very helpful service, excellent first course (Cod Goujons in my case), excellent main course (Cod in a herbal crust - and no it didn't feel like too much Cod) and our... More

Was very much looking forward to an evening out to celebrate my new job with partner and his family and had heard good things about The Butchers. What first struck me was the food seemed very expensive for pub grub, especially the vegetarian options at around £13 for my main course of a tomato and onion tart with chips? For... More

Although the menu choices are quite limited when you taste whatever you choose you realise that doesn't matter at all...so beautifully cooked and well presented. I had cod with a citrus crumb and sauté pototaoes mmm followed by one of the homemade desserts; a chocolate and hazelnut pie absolutely... More

A great welcome and throughout the meal the waitress made sure we had all we needed. We had the special set price menu. The choice was small but a vast menu usually means a well stocked freezer! I had the onion tart with beetroot and goats cheese which was delicious; others in the party enjoyed the goujons of cod. For... More

Five members of our family were able to spend time together and the first place of choice to eat is always The Butchers Arms. Lunchtime Tuesday 17th June was no different and I booked a table just to make sure. We were warmly welcomed as usual from all the staff. The choice from the usual menu and also the special's...

We had heard very good reports of this restaurant so was really looking forward to a visit. I am afraid we were sadly disappointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful, but the place was so generic it could have been anywhere. The menu was quite limited and there appeared to be nothing that was local. The food was 'ok',...

From the minute we walked in to the minute we left received a great welcome and attention from the landlady and her staff. The quality and quantity of the food was superb and great value for money. We cannot wait to return

Hidden away in a small village just of the A48. From the outside it looks as if it could do with a little TLC. Inside it is warm and snug. Three small dining rooms with tables pretty close together so probably not the place for a very private conversation. We thought the food to be very good. The menu gives... More
