We've used the Barton Arms on many occasions before or after Aston Villa games. As always we thoroughly enjoyed the food, beer and atmosphere in the unique surroundings.

The Barton’s Arms is a beautiful old-fashioned bar with stained glass and tiled walls. The dining room is a Thai restaurant with fantastic, fresh and tasty food. We were there before an Aston Villa home match and the place was mobbed yet service was slick and friendly.

I did enjoy the meal, we both ordered from the £10 menu, when the starters came out they was lovely. Then the main meal came out, I’m not lying there was a very small amount of pork, mainly covered in loads of peppers. The taste wasn’t up to the usual standard, very bland . I am disappointed, but I am willing to try again.

The Barton Arms is a lovely Edwardian Pub that does tasty Thai food. The pub has hanging lights which reflect on the tiled walls which are set off by dark wood. The bar still has its snob screen and serves good quality ale. Have been quite a few times now and will be going back.

Great quality food, very tasty and offers exceptional value for money on Tuesday evenings. We also go on Sundays for lunch which we enjoy too. Plus the pub has social historical importance and retains original tiles and decor. The Laurel and Hardy connection always make us smile. Plus has excellent real ale.

Wonderful food and a great choice on the menu. Was very quiet in the restaurant so service was very prompt. It’s a shame there weren’t more customers given the quality of the food.

My partners meal looked very appetizing but my vegetarian meal was very bland. It did say it was tofu and pak choi but that's all it was I expected it to have some extra vegetables in to give it flavour and colour. Think I made the wrong choice on the day.

Love this place! Took friends who had never been before & I haven't been for a few years either. Lovely lady serving our table was really helpful, service was in good time & Cant fault the surroundings. I would have given 5 stars if the chicken wings starter were not so dry & hard. Main dishes were just gorgeous! we were all really happy with the portions, quality, price was agreed to be a little on the top heavy side but they have Tuesday night's which is £10 for 2 courses (limited menu), probably try this too! Already planning to go back. Highly recommend. There is a small car park too.

A peace of Birmingham treasure. The staircase is worth a visit alone. If any tourists are reading this you have to go otherwise your missing out. The food is excellent too, don’t miss it!

We have been regulars at The Barton Arms for over a decade and the standard of food, service and general ambiance has always been exceptional. One of our party wanted her main course to be very light on the spice and it arrived exactly as she would want, excellent considering it was a very busy Saturday night, And a great range of beers as always.

Was a bit concerned by the general area but the car park seemed secure enough. The food is absolutely amazing. Best thai ive ever had. The outside doesnt do the place any justice. The service was excellent and I have already recommended to local friends. I will certainly be coming back .

First time in The Bartons Arms. Fabulously old fashioned as a listed building. Booked into Thai restaurant part of the pub, food is amazing. 2 starters, 2 mains & a rice to share £35. Adequate & very filling portions. 100%recommend. Saturday nights have a DJ playing upstairs music through the decades. Free entry from 9pm - 2am. Would definitely go again.
