A Taste & Tour of The Bartons Arms
Tales from the Tiles – A Taste & Tour of The Bartons Arms
The Bartons Arms is one of the most beautiful pubs in the country. Now you will have the chance to take a tour of this famous old pub and marvel at its Victorian tiles, its magnificent wrought iron staircase and splendid snob screens. Take a journey down to its unique cellar and discover the ingenuity of the Victorians.
There will also be a light-hearted talk and slide show, charting the pub’s amazing history and its links to the Aston Hippodrome and Laurel & Hardy. Find out if Laurel & Hardy really did stay there. And were the Bartons’ tiles really the inspiration behind Aston Villa’s famous claret and blue colours? The talk and tour will be hosted by local author, John Ullah*, who was born just a mile from The Bartons Arms.
The evening will finish with a delicious 2-course Thai meal, served in what is probably the most beautiful restaurant in the UK.
All this for only £19.95 per person. Why not come along and discover the Bartons for yourself?
The Taste and Tour evenings are on Monday and begin at 7:00pm.
