Local nameThe Bartons Arms
LocationBirmingham, UK

The Bartons Arms is a public house in the High Street in the Newtown area of Aston, Birmingham, England.

Built in 1900-1901 by noted pub architects partnership James and Lister Lea for Mitchells & Butlers, it is a grade II* listed building, and is on the Campaign for Real Ale's National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors.The pub is known for its wall-to-wall Minton-Hollins tiles and its snob screens, which allowed middle class drinkers to see working class drinkers in an adjacent bar, but not to be seen by them. The current public bar was originally divided into three. There are function rooms upstairs, originally for billiards and club use.Laurel and Hardy stayed there in May 1954, while appearing at the adjacent Aston Hippodrome, and were photographed serving beer from behind the bar.
