Interesting

Nice place with interesting interiors - seems to be a great place for a drink as well as a meal. The food was very tasty - fried watermelon and halumi starters, scallops on puree pees with chunks of black pudding....generally things that were unexpectedly delicious together. Worth a revisit!

This was a pub/restaurant that several people had mentioned as being somewhere worth visiting. As people who enjoy a pub atmosphere but with good quality food we were looking forward to it. The general atmosphere was good although some of the tables including ours were too close together. The service was friendly and efficient. But the food, both the range... More

We've been here before and had a good day, but our monday lunch was dissapointing. Just a few customers when we arrived and had a choice of tables. Noticed some of the chairs had tears and were past their best. We ate A La Carte and chose a mix of menu and specials board, and ordered our drinks. Starters arrived... More

Me & hubby had been shopping in Tamworth & were on our way home & we decided to stop at the Butlers Arms. We thought that we would have our 31st wedding anniversary meal there. The pub looked lovely from the outside but when we walked in we was surprised at the eclectic mix of furniture in there, it looks... More

Have eaten here several times, both lunch and dinner, and food is always of a high standard and beautifully cooked and presented. Staff efficient and friendly. Good value for money

It has a real buzz about it and the staff are so friendly and helpful. The owner is a straight talking guy and if you are going to have to wait for a meal they are honest and tell you and ply you with bread and dip. The food is to 'die for' and locally sourced

We went with our daughter and partner for his brithday and the food was excellent. We ate of the 3 course set menu and the menu included staple diet pub favourites and something a bit different. Beautifully cooked and cheap. Staff were friendly and generally attentive and the only reason it hasn't got 5 stars is because the ladies toilet... More

Been here a few times now and always look forward to going again. Don't know if you'd describe this as a gastro-pub, I suggest that the restaurant is better than that although there is a bar section where you can just go for a drink. Very good quality food, good standard dishes, good steaks and always a number of fish... More

Had what I thought was a lovely meal last night, excellent service etc, Got home at 10pm- cup of tea and bed until 11:45 pm when I woke up with violent stomach pains. Out of bed like a shot and was very ill. Sickness and diarrhoea till about 12:30am and have been on water all day-did anyone else have problems?

Dear Margaret R W, I am very concerned by your post. I am of course delighted that you had a lovely meal and that the service was excellent however I’m very concerned that you’ve been ill. On the night which you dined we served over 70 three course meals and to my knowledge no-one else has been ill (other members... More

Menu well above the average pub grub offerings. Mon-Wed three course deals very good value if you are quite hungry. Disappointing décor, quite tatty and not in keeping with the standard of the menu. Service good and quality of food good. Would go again for a mid week meal but its too rustic for my liking for a weekend night... More
