We are a small, family run business established a few years ago. We offer good quality, freshly prepared, home cooked food. We are very keen to offer competitive prices - Look out for some great offers. We take great pride in our cask ales and we are listed in the 2013 Good Beer Guide. Generally at least one of the four Ales on offer will change almost every day. We source our produce wherever possible from local suppliers; our fish and vegetables are delivered fresh daily from Birmingham Wholesale Market, our meat comes from Russell’s Butchers in Shenstone. We have been working with some of our supplier for years. We smoke our own fish here on the premises. We keep a pretty fair wine list and we’re always on the lookout for bargains; small parcels of a few cases of something interesting at a good price. We always pass our savings on.

Fathers Day lunch- nothing special arranged by the restaurant for this, unusual!
We were kept waiting for half an hour for our table, service was very slow throughout the meal and no one seemed bothered about us at all.
The food was ok, some of my roast beef was too tough to cut threw, I didn’t say anything at the time as it was a treat for my father
Very disappointed- I have been here before and it has always been lovely

I went there with a friend for Sunday lunch, and we both thought that all three courses were delicious and certainly very good value for money.

Visited the Butlers Arms last week for Sunday lunch. It was our first visit and we were most impressed, particularly about the quality and presentation of the food. We intend to call again and recommend it to our friends.

Three couples went out to celebrate my husbands birthday - the food, service, beer and wine selection were excellent as was the cocktail selection!

All food is freshly prepared and cooked superbly. The fish selection is wonderful.

We had a great time and will be back soon.

We usually come here every two weeks, getting here between 6 and 7 pm to take advantage of the 20% discount. I tried the crispy pork salad starter and the free-range roast chicken with dauphinoise potatoes, both of which were delicious. My husband usually has the same each time - devon crab on toast starter followed by teriyaki salmon. He always enjoys it. The staff are great, ensuring that our experiences here are enjoyable.

Good food, good service. Overall good experience. Only issue was parking which meant I had to park further down the main road than I would of liked. It must be difficult for a restaurant when their car park is being used for other reasons.

The service was good, my wife and I took our son and his wife for their first time at the Butlers and they were impressed with it and they said that they would go again. The ambiance and food was good and the whole selection on the menu was varied. My wife and I will definitely return.

Have. Eaten here many times before and feel that the menu needs updating
My starter of asparagus and egg was lovely, but the main was poor as the hake was overdone and rubbery and the choritzi was hard. However I did eat it and did not complain but felt the quality had declined
All in all not the value and quality that I always felt was offered here

We always enjoy eating at the Butlers Arms, though this time I felt there was a sense of lack lustre with the Team who were working there that night! Perhaps it had been a long week? (Thursday night when we ate.) Food was good, I always enjoy the fish specials & the choice excellent.

Told them on booking we had scooter, when we arrived we were offered seating in bar?, I refused, found seating myself, my husband ordered corned beef hash, which should consist of mash, corned beef & onions, he was served up slices of beef with bits of potatoes mixed with some kind of tomato sauce, my husband is seriously ill & has difficulty in swallowing so had to leave most of meal. We used to use this restaurant in the evenings very often, haven't been for a good while through my husbands health, this time we went lunch time, not as good as evening meals, it was m husbands choice - a birthday treat for me!!!.
