I used to work very close to Barton Arms, so it was a default place for nice lunches and after work drinks. I've always loved the food and friendly service. I moved abroad four years ago, but whenever I'm in a Birmingham for a visit I try to get the old gang together. The food that I've been craving is still incredible. My favourite member of staff was still there with her big smile and there were some new faces too. It was a great night with awesome friends, good memories, plus wonderful food and service.

I've been to Barton Arms a few times now and the Thai food never disappoints! I ordered the tom yum soup with king prawns - delicious! Not for the light hearted as it has a real spicy kick. For mains, my partner and I ordered panang curry and red Thai curry - again delicious! The food is quite pricey however. If the prices were slightly lower, I definitely would make more frequent visits.

Had a great evening at the Barton’s Arms. Great ambience and food. Makes a change to go somewhere a little bit different. Loved the decor. Can just imagine Laurel and Hardy here all those years ago. Highly recommend.

My partner and myself went here for our Date Night. We usually go for unusual and different eating venues and The Barton Arms certainly delivered.

The food was amazing!!! So, so good. The decor is definitely interesting and different which is something we look for in a restaurant.

A wonderful meal, served promptly by friendly yet unintrusive staff. The pub is a fantastic design, in the style of the Phillomonic in Liverpool. It has been beautifully maintained. Do book as it is popular.
