    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bostin fittle is Black Country - speak for good food, so this place is well named
    The large menu offers food for all tastes and the portions are more than generous.
    Its a family pub so if you have children its ideal, especially as there is a childrens play centre attached

    Favorite Dish: Mussels in white wine and cream is very good
    also the Sizzling chicken..... and it really does sizzle
    the roast dinners are served on a plate so large that it looks like a tray
