2015.05.28 New Taste and Tour of The Bartons Armsprevious post: Green Devil wins Gold Medal at International Brewing Awards 2015
‘Flabbergasted’ may be the right description
‘I was flabbergasted by the sheer size of the basement. It’s nothing like what I imagined a pub cellar would be.’ said Jonathan after his trip down The Bartons Arms’ working cellar, which forms part of the new Taste and Tour of The Bartons Arms. Even for someone like Jonathan who frequents the venue regularly was amazed when he climbed down a flight of stairs to the rarely seen cellar.
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. The dates for 2015 are:
