I popped along with a couple of friends for a pint and the choice we had here was impressive, a large choice off real ale and cider. Food looked good but we didn't stay to eat

Had a great time here over the weekend, really friendly place with lovely food ( try the faggots !), good selection of hand pull beers and loads of interesting bottles in the fridge, I'm working in Walsall for the next few months so I'm going to be a regular. Cheers !.

They should be entered into a best pie contest because they'd win hands down, lovely pastry, tastier than tasty, & doubly delicious filling & gravy :-)''' Just the thought of them gets me dribblin' like a babby. Need I say another satisfying meal at the BCA, lovely staff, & great prices.

This latest visit was the same as the others, a delight ! The pub as a warm feeling that hits you as soon as you walk in, the menu is simple pub food all cooked in their kitchen and not factory food, the choice is good and we have not been disappointed. The selection of fine ales is beyond belief... More

Cobs available thorough out the day & evening. Brilliant land lady... More
