We stayed in the Butchers arms cottage next door so the fact you can roll out of the door and virtually straight into the pub in no way clouded our judgement. The cottage is fabulous with all the little extras imaginable while the service is super. We were welcomed with a drink on our arrival. We had intended to eat... More

We visit lots of pub/restaurants for lunch but none can match the consistent, excellent service and lovely food of the Butchers, Llanddarog. Today we had the most delicious ham, salad and chips. The ham is real boiled old fashioned ham, the chips are of a quality rarely found in other pubs. The salad is delicious, a hint of dressing again... More

Went for an early lunch without booking, just as well because it became very busy with people who had clearly been there many times - a good sign. Friendly service and nicely cooked food. The main courses were very generous and unfortunately didn't leave room for desserts which all sounded good. All dishes very reasonably priced. Would definitely eat there... More

After being on holidays for quite a long period we resumed our visits to this lovely pub and were delighted yet again to find nothing had changed - the atmosphere , welcome and most of all the food was up to its usual high standard .. Staff greeted us as if we were long lost friends and we were welcomed... More

The Butchers Arms is a lovely Welsh Pub Restaurant . It is our favourite place to eat. The Steak and Ale Pie is superb . The staff and owners are very friendly and attentive. The comments about waiting for food (Ruthj357) I have to say is totally wrong , the owners wouldn't allow it to happen.

I wrote a review for this lovely Pub Restaurant a couple of years ago, and I don't normally feel the need to write a second review. However, on this trip to hook up with old friends in Wales, one night out stood out from the rest as a great night out, (Friday the 3rd of October). First of all, one... More

I ate here with my son and father in law on 1st October. The waitress was a delight, the food was served in a timely manner and tasted superb, I'm staggered at the comments below as their experience was totally different to ours. I have to mention the girl behind the Bar, apart from providing us with very nice beer,... More
