Don't bother. It would appear that they can't even be bothered to open. Unfortunately I'm unable to review the food as the building was closed when we arrived for afternoon tea which had been booked through Groupon. Knocked on doors and attempted to contact them...More

You can understand why this restaurant is on Groupon! The restaurant is dirty and food greasy and basic. Hence they need to offer great deals as repeat custom must be very rare! The venue is a lovely building, it just needs a better operator, such...More

The Guildhall in Walsall's Old Square is an imposing old building which dates all the way back to the 16th century. Now a Grade I listed gem, the site has been converted into a lively neighbourhood Italian restaurant and the never-ending dining room is crammed with tables of all sizes, fairy lights and an open-plan kitchen where chefs are hard at work tossing pizzas in the air. Live music & Italian music is played at Sofia's, adding to the upbeat atmosphere, and the menu is filled with old-fashioned favourites and also traditional English Favourites such as afternoon tea and Sunday Roast
