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.

    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.

    At first the table service was slow and irritating that
    We was greeting at the door then showed our table - and then got I gored- we wasn't even asked if we wanted a drink or anything. Eventually after looking for some one our selves and becoming that we - well we need serving.
    Evenutally we got served.
    But it was noisy and it will be a long time before we come again.
    Also disappointed to hear that Clare had left -which is probably why the service was rubbish.

    Although we had booked a table, they had not reserved one for us so we stood while they found one right innline of the 'ever opening' door to outside. My friend was frozen. Another couple left their table do we immediately asked to move to that one which was warmer. On the booking we had requested a quiet table as my friend suffers from anxiety. This request, in my view, was not considered at all. The service was dreadful. We were only part way into our starter sharing platter when our main arrived. They said they couldn't take it away as it would get cold (!) so we ended up with our platter and main at the same time. After a few minutes the a waitress took the platter so we had to call to her to bring it back!
    Once eaten, we must have waited over half an hour before I had to go to the bar to ask for the table to be cleared and a menu for dessert. To top off the experience, the waiter clearing the table accidentally dropped the plates onto the tiled floor smashing them. I know this was an accident but we had to laugh as the whole meal had been a disaster.
