I have been eating here on many occasions over the last few years and it never falters in quality. The menu is varied for many requirements and is extensive enough to keep your visits interesting There is plenty of room for each table which is a plus and caters for families with young children also Overall a very solid standard...

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... More

Visited with a large family group for a meal on a Saturday night and the experience couldn't have been better. We all pre ordered to give the kitchen a fighting chance and they duly delivered. The starters were brought out quickly and to a high standard. The chicken strips were succulent and tasty, accompanied with a good side salad. Likewise... More

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... More

Awesome food, attentive staff and fantastic value for money! Situated in a Heritage town will interesting history. The pub itself is at the top of town at the entrance to the Keepas roads with beautiful mountain scenery. The dining room is very spacious and has a relaxing atmosphere. All food is home cooked and prepared fresh. Best Sunday lunch around.
