Dined with family and the food was amazing and quick. Nice to have a choice with the kids the size of meal they can have under 5s or under 10s. Everything was fresh and homemade. Went to butterflies down the road the week before and food and service here is much better, can't wait to come back and try rest...

I have been eating here on many occasions over the last few years and it never falters in quality.

We spent a few days travelling around the Blaenavon area, and stayed centrally at The Rifleman's Arms. David and Jackie are delightful hosts .... our room was well appointed, quiet, clean and tidy, with a large bathroom and a comfortable bed. Breakfast was hearty and nicely cooked. At reasonable rates, we were very happy! Will stay here again next time...

Group of around 40 or more booked the one room for a Christmas evening lunch. 3 course meal with the main being a roast (choice of duck & orange) too. The prawn cocktail was great, the roast itself was outstanding (the beef just falls apart) and the dessert was very good. An excellent meal with plenty of veg, potatoes and...
