Recently The Elisabeth Arms in Bilston had an extensive refurbishment giving a whole new look along with a new menu. We were invited along for a try of the menu as well as have a look at the changes.
The Elisabeth Arms, isn't a restaurant I had visited before, I remember once we went to go there, pulled up on the car park which was busy (good sign) but it just didn't look inviting from the exterior so we never went in. This time however, on arriving at the car park, I was pleased with how warming and inviting it looked compared to the first visit I made there.
We went on a Saturday evening, so a reasonably busy time which I think is the perfect timing as you get a real feel for how they can cope when busy, also as we always go out for meals as a family, I always want to find somewhere who are good at accommodating families, especially those with younger children.
As I hadn't been to the restaurant before or a Sizzling before I was unsure how the seating was but from observing, I believe you go in and find your own table. Ours was a reserved table so after asking a member of staff we were shown to our table however again, watching others they just headed along to their reservation tables also.
We sat at our table and made our meal choices before going up to the bar to order. The menu had a wide choice of food available, and on our visit everything was available. As it was a bit busy in the restaurant it did take a short while for our meals to come out, but nothing longer than I would have expected. Whilst we were waiting one of the waitresses came over and offered Jack some colouring sheets which he enjoyed whilst awaiting his food.
Our food arrived with the children's meals coming first followed by ours. Jack had opted for chicken nuggets and chips with beans, whilst Isla enjoyed a pizza which was served with some salad sticks. Ashley had the Rack of BBQ Glazed Ribs whilst I was a pig and had the All American Platter,we both had ours with sweet potato fries rather than standard chips. Overall the meals were delicious, served hot and full of flavour. They were a lot bigger plates than I was expecting for the price too but very much enjoyed.
As Jacks meal came with a desert within the price, we had a desert too. Jack had the build your own sundae, Ashley had the Rocky Road Sundae and I had the Kit Kat Sundae. We didn't do Isla's meal on the deal as she doesn't tend to eat much however we did get her a desert of a cookie, but she didn't eat this.
Overall we really enjoyed our meal and the service in which we received at the restaurant. It will definitely be somewhere in which we will return too within the future.
Please Note: I received a £50 voucher towards the cost of our meal in exchange for an honest review however this does not influence my decision in any way.
