Delicious food great service
Firstly, such beautiful food and great portion sizes. Secondly what a gorgeous interior, old world but beautiful.
We went on a really hot day so the only hiccup was that it was quite warm inside... and I love heat, but the food was worth being a little too warm and I should imagine the evenings (and colder days) are more comfortable.
Definitely will be back soon!
Beautiful pub, great food and ale.
The Bartons Arms is a beautiful pub with great ambience. The Thai food was excellent, the service friendly and efficient. The beer, Oakham Ales, was delicious and perfectly complemented the food. We had an enjoyable visit.
If you like Thai food you will not be disappointed, the only thing to remember is that the food is not very spicy but it is tasty
The Barton Arms never fails! It really is the best Thai in the city!
The staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. The food was flavoursome. The setting lacked a bit of ambience and the place settings (crockery, cutlery etc.) felt a bit like old fashion school dinners / staff canteen. But that may be due to COVID measures. But if you want flavoursome food, friendly service and a reasonable price and aren't concerned so much with the aesthetic ... then this is a fine option.
Always a good experience here. Tasty food well prepared. Very quick service. Staff friendly.
This is a Thai Restaurant so food is limited to staple Thai food. It will contain nuts and chillies therefore.
Food amazing as always. Lovely pubs and friendly fab staff
Top food,top service,unbelievable building. Well worth a visit.
As usual the food, the ambience and the service at Bartons was first class.
Lovely place and excellent food but it’s got a tiny carpark that people in the surrounding area seem to use.
Nice food with a good selection of dishes. Service was really quick and the waiter was friendly.
When we arrived, the lady serving drinks behind the bar wasn't really welcoming as I approached her to let her know we had a reservation but instead of saying 'hi' or asking if she could help, she blurted out 'take a seat!' before I could say anything.
When I eventually told her that we had a reservation, only then did she direct me towards the restaurant area.
The place wasn't busy at the time so some hospitality training for this person would be recommended as she didn't make a good first impression.
Brilliant authentic Thai food in lovely location. Friendly staff. Really enjoyable evening
Excellent food and service a s always. Genuine range of Thai foods, perfect portions and very very tasty.
The best Thai Green Curry I've ever tasted. The ambience was great and the waiting staff were friendly and courteous. Made me and my girlfriend feel special.
The food was superb as always. They were really flexible with booking within the covid restrictions and the service was great.
There was nothing to fault - it was great to be back.
Very nice Thai food at a reasonable price. The pub itself is really beautiful. The waiters were attentive and even though there were only two of them covering the whole floor they did a really good job. Definitely recommend!
Choice of2 menus, food excellent. Service good, they even let us bring a home made cake in to celebrate a 80 th birthday provide ing plates and knife as well. Can't reallyfault the place although it's looking a bit tired, mind it is quite old!
Food was amazing definitely recommended and will most definitely go again. Service was great, ambience needs more work to make it a little bit more like a restaurant than a old pub
There was a few minutes between the time of us making our food order after we had our drinks but the time it arrived was quick and it tasted amazing as always.
lovely venue good value for money feels covid safe
The food is very authentic and the service is very good have been going here for years and it's still great
A lovely pub serving Thai Food which is amazing. Location may put some people off as it is in Newton on the A34 but it is so worth the visit.
It is the place that I went to to have my 'last' meal before Covid-19 lockdown in March, and also again for the 2nd lockdown!
We went on Tuesday for their Tuesday special. The food was lovely. We all enjoyed what we ordered. Except for the Papaya Salad. We felt it wasn’t spicy enough and just missed some flavour. However this was all and not a major issue. We would go back but not order again. The staff were great and attentive.
Barton arms is must visit in Birmingham, old historic pub that serves beautiful Thai food, the service and staff were friendly and welcoming. Food was amazing and worth visiting.
Suburb food , excellent service would definitely recommend
Great food great ale we have been going more often to hopefully keep this place open.
Amazing food. The best social distancing I’ve seen in a restaurant. The food was unbelievable. I would go back.
Always great food and service at the Barton Arms ...very quiet on Sunday hope they manage through these difficult times they serve wonderful food in beautiful surroundings thank you To the great staff
I have eaten here many times, the food never disappoints. The stsff helpful and always pleasant. Worth a visit
Lovely food, staff very friendly, would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Me and my daughter took my mum for Lunch wanted somewhere fairly local and accessible forcus to meet up.
The food is of very high standard, so yummy and nicely presented.
Would be nice if they could do something to improve the ambiance, but hey, don't let that stop you otherwise you'll miss out on some top quality value for money food.
So very pleased and the service was lovely, I'd definately go again
Used to love eating here but left a bit disappointed, especially as it's now quite pricey compared to others. Food was not as tasty as on past visits.
We think that this is the best Thai restaurant for lunch time meals; good portions for lunchtime. We have been visiting for many years now.
Main menu is excellent and reflects the traditional Thai cuisine.
Lovely hosts and wonderful settings in a Victorian tiled environment- becoming rarer in Birmingham as so many pubs now being demolished.
We had a superb evening! The meal was outstandingly tasty and brilliant value for money. What a wonderful setting the Bartons is!
Food is 10/10 I highly recommend people try it. The chefs are Thai and the food is authentic
Had a really nice experience at the Bartons Arms. Fast friendly service. The weekday lunch menu is excellent value and delicious and the beers were good too
Beautiful, historic pub where the quality of the beer is matched by the excellence of the Thai food.
