The food here was simply outstanding and the staff really friendly. A lovely feel to the place. It was recommended to us and we can now endorse that recommendation by doing the same.

A True taste of Wales!David & Mavis have owned The Butchers for 30 years and have built up a good reputation for serving quality homemade food at a reasonable price.
