Trading since the mid-1850s, The Oaken Arms near Wolverhampton is nestled in the rolling countryside of Staffordshire. Offering well-loved British pub cuisine, it boasts plush Chesterfield armchairs, an enclosed brick hearth and, true to name, chunky oak beams. The classic whitewashed exterior and the enclosing country can be enjoyed from the al fresco garden for summer dining.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Oaken Arms menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Oaken Arms ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

At just 5 minutes’ drive from the picturesque village of Codsall and its Train Station, or 10 minutes to Wolverhampton, The Oaken Arms is a perfect country retreat.

    We were seated next to a large party and couldn't hear ourselves talking so we asked to move which was dealt with promptly and no bother. Our meal was lovely, hot and tasty and the new waitress was very accomodating. Thank you for a lovely evening on our first date!

    Have visited The Oaken Arms on numerous occasions but not in the last year until 14/01/17. I went as a party of 6. It was not up to the previous high standard I had experienced.
    We were very disappointed with the quality of food and service. The table we eventually got was not laid up and had the debris from last diners was still under table as well as the table itself being grubby.
    We did not complain at the time as we were on our way to the theatre & didn't want to start the evening off on a low.
    A return visit is not on the horizon as there are far superior eating establishments in the vicinity.
