So many wonderful aspects to this local town-centre pub. The building itself, interior and exterior, is a sheer delight! The food is perfectly-pitched local fayre, generously proportioned and reasonably priced. The choice of draught ales, sixteen at least, means there's always a great choice of wonderful beers. And the friendly staff couldn't be more welcoming.

Visited for lunch on a Sunday (although we didn't want a roast dinner). All three meals were delicious and the wait wasn't too long - about 25 mins. Only reason I haven't give a five is that I had to pay for meals and drinks separately, however this has not put us off and we will definitely be back for another visit. wereddelicious

This was our first visit here on Friday 18th September, early evening with friends for a bite to eat + drinks.
The atmosphere felt authentic which perhaps went with the decor. It was engaging seeing the old pictures of old Walsall decorated around the pub. We ordered some Food & Drinks by the delightful barmaid, her customer service was exceptional. Very well presented, a picture behind the bar.
We didn't have to wait very long for our food, when it arrived the food looked appealing + big portion sizes. The barmaid checked back that our meals were satisfactory + we were happy which I found was enchanting. As some pubs bring out the meals & forget that you exist. It was organised + traditional. Customers are definitely looked after. Such a fantastic range of real ales with a clear menu for the style, colour + ABV.
We will definitely visit the Black Country Arms again

This is a very friendly and inviting public house. Always a wide variety of beers (14 regularly changing) and 2 real ciders. The food is of an excellent quality and not over priced. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Would recommend a visit.

I was in Walsall visiting my son. He suggested we went out a quick drink. He was hungry and wanted something to eat. He had the 2 course Sunday Lunch, roast chicken and bread pudding for dessert. I had a pint of Thatchers Gold and Dan also had Cider, a pint of Thatchers Cedar Valley. There is a massive choice of draft beers. I browsed the menu and also decided I would also have something to eat. I chose the Faggot and mushy pea pie, usual but very nice.
The food was very nice and arrived in a reasonable time. This is the 3rd time I have visited the Black Country arms and will certainly be visiting again.

I previously wrote a glowing report about the Black Country Arms. Having been impressed on our first visit, we decided to return with a friend, but this time we were slightly disappointed. When we placed our order we were told that it might take between 30 and 40 minutes, since a party of 14 people had made a reservation and were in front of us. After nearly an hour we were told that they had only one brie and beetroot tart available, when we had ordered two. I re-selected, opting for a potato and onion pie. It was OK, but nothing special, and we felt they ought to have told us when we first placed the order.
The service was friendly, and the waitress apologised for the delay. We did feel, however, that a party of 14 was not enormous (and they were expected after all), so we would have expected slightly more prompt service. Luckily we were not in a rush, and will probably give the Black Country Arms another chance. Better luck next time, we hope!

This is one of five local pubs that a group of us visit regularly on Thursdays. Over the last five years we have dropped pubs for failing in respect of food quality or obscene price increases and added new pubs but the Black Country Arms has stayed on our rota. Good food,12 real ales and a warm welcome. The downside (that, fortunately does not impact on us) is that the flight of stairs to the servery and two flights to the toilets makes it impracticable for those with impaired mobility.

My monthly visits to this great place never fails. Beautiful range of 16 ales every day, well managed bar owned & run by Kim. Great food, now being served all day. Fish Pie, Liver, onions & mash, Scampi all delicious. Brilliant Quiz every 3rd Thursday of the month run by excellent brothers Jimm & Michael at 8pm. Please do come to see what I rate as probably the best pub in Walsall.

I ate a roast pork and stuffing sandwich, accompanied by an half a pint of elderflower ale in this lovely old pub. The sandwich contained perfect white meat and is up there with the best; the ale was enchanting. This place takes pride in it's food and drink and it shows. The staff member was friendly and helpful. I can't wait to return and try more of their ales, beers and food. Every town should have a pub like this..!

Took some time to experience what Walsall had to offer mainly with respect to real ales. The pub is wonderfully decorated with a bar that has an extensive range all priced low in comparison to many other pubs. The food on offer covered snacks in the form of cobs with various fillings for £1 each to more substantial offerings. I had a chicken jalfrezzi which was excellent. This pub is well worth re-visiting!

found this pub on trip advisor and as we were going for a night out in Walsall for our daughter's 40th birthday we decided to try here, so glad we did the food was excellent best we have had for a long time and drinks spoilt for choice and all reasonably priced, will definitely be going back

for me, seeing as it was my third visit. This time I had the Chilli Con Carne, chips, & garlic bread, SLURP :-)''' as usual. Mr DeuceWooo had fish & chips, but he wasn't keen, he missed his BCA pie that he usually has. Again 2 meals & 2 drinks for under £20, you really can't go wrong here people. I've already chosen my meal for next time, & I can't wait to get back & try that pie of Roy's!

We had always thought that the Black Country Arms looked like a working men’s pub. This was pure prejudice on our part – it looks smart enough, but situated at the top of the Walsall market, it looked as if it was the place to have a drink or two after work.
Recently a friend recommended it highly, so when we were in town the other day around lunch time, we decided to give it a try. Our friend was right. It has an interesting and imaginative layout, with different levels and numerous alcoves which help reduce noisy and enable privacy. The bar is on the second level, with some games facilities on the top deck.
The menu is quite extensive. There were various vegetarian items, with more on the ‘specials’ menu on a board at the bar. We opted for the beetroot and Brie tart, which was served with a very fresh salad.
The Black Country Arms surpassed expectations, and we will certainly return.

What a superb town centre venue, open from 11:00 am until you should be in bed. The place features a cornucopia of real ales, ciders and wines plus amazing portions of good honest food. Even better is that it has great atmosphere, cheery staff and led by probably the best licensee in town. Truly a class act.

Having discovered this wonderful pub just last year it has become our regular stopping place for lunch every time we are in Walsall. In particular we adore the Sunday lunches, fabulous big platters of home cooked roast beef and fresh vegetables.
The service at The Black Country Arms is always excellent. Very polite, well trained staff look after you from the moment you arrive. This pub is a hidden gem and an absolute "must visit" for those who enjoy fantastic real ales, freshly cooked meals and true value for money. It is by far the best pub in the town!
