“Business lunch”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Today i went with other Best of Walsall ladies for lunch at Arbor Lights. I found the service attentive, the food was clearly homemade and tasty and the price was very reasonable. I will as well as our business Xpress design & print will be coming more often for our business meetings

“Good business group experience”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

We took a party of 13 European delegates to Arbor Lights at 6pm on Thurs 27 March. We had been asked to pre-order and our mains were provided very promptly after the party sat down. All the delegates said that they enjoyed their food, and also commented on features such as the chips for the steak being served separately in little wire baskets. The desserts were also served promptly and again, the delegates commented on the quality of the food and on how much they enjoyed it. They also liked the general atmosphere and decor. The staff were friendly and happy to answer questions about the food. We needed to leave by a certain time for transport reasons, and staff made sure that we had the bill and completed payment in plenty of time, without rushing us out straight after we had paid.

Reviewed 17 March 2014

the food was very poor, completely tasteless, We attended a private party and it was all vegetarian food, staff seems friendly, drink prices seem reasonable.

Arbor L, General Manager at Arbor Lights, responded to this review, 31 October 2014
I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your food during your visit to Arbor Lights.

The private event that you attended was one where the host of the event requested to only offer vegetarian options but I am sorry to hear that this was not to your taste. I am a little surprised to hear the you found the food tasteless as much of the feedback that we received during the evening was about how well the chefs had achieved a subtle balance of flavours in the dishes available.

We hope that you will join us for a meal and sample some of our dishes from our normal menu soon. We have 4 and 8 bone racks of lamb, sirloin, rump, T-bone and fillet steaks, ham hock and chicken breast available to choose from not to mention our fish selection. We hope that these may be more to your liking.

Kind regards
M. Harper

“Well worth a try”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Friendly staff and a very good steak (if I'm being brutal i prefer a thicker sauce but that's a personal preference and didn't detract from the quality and flavour of the meat) and rack of lamb -fantastic reduction. Nice single malts available also.

“A Must Try!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

My partner and I had a Friday evening meal here and could not fault it. I'm surprised a place like this exists in Walsall. We had a 3 course meal, 2 large glasses of wine and a J2O and a Rekorderlig for under £70. This may seem a lot, however, the quality of the food is worth paying for. The gentleman who sat us down is great. The lady who took our payment and brought our food to the table was great. Service excellent overall.

If you want a very special meal - GO HERE! It may be a little pricey but is represented in the quality of your whole visit. I treated the other half and he felt extremely spoilt. The menu is limited but I struggle when it comes to too much choice. The desserts are the best I have ever had. The toffee something or another is something I advise everyone to try.

The only downfall was that it did not have that busy atmosphere, just wish there were more people in there but that will not stop us from going again!
