We have to say that this was probably one of the best value meals we have ever eaten. At £11.90 for 2 courses, £13.90 for 3 courses with an extensive menu and a reasonably priced wine list, we were really impressed. A table of 5 people, we all had different meals and every single one of us cleared our plates.... More

A fancy/schmancy menu for Lichfield, so it's popular with the Ladies who Lunch. But really, you'd be much better off going to any number of nearby pubs. The haddock was doughy/bready/bland, and the chicken "casserole" was doughy/bready/bland. The bread---which obviously comes straight from the frig---and for which you're charged an extra 1.50--- is served with mayonnaise. (On the other hand,... More

This place was a good find. The menu is thoughtful and the food quality really good. Extremely good value too. Its very buzzy, good for a party, not so much for a quiet meal. On the downside, the table and some tableware weren't clean. The dessert was lovely and homecooked, but a bit boring. On the whole, I doubt you'll... More

We visited on a weekday lunchtime. There was plenty of choice - not always the case for me as I do not eat meat or spicy food. The service was on the ball. The star of the show was the food, with the portions being just the right size, beautifully presented and the quality was top notch. Three courses for... More

Yesterday, I booked a 1.30 table for two for Sunday lunch. Drinks orders taken straight away, but after waiting 15 minutes had to ask for our food order to be taken. Starters arrived 10 minutes later, after which we were told we would have to wait 5 or 10 minutes for main courses, as meals were being served first to... More

Interesting building, nice relaxed atmosphere friendly professional service. Very popular so would recommend booking at weekends. Good food presented in a no nonsense way with good wine at a reasonable price.

Second time here and much better being sat in the upstairs section where it is warmer and more intimate. The bench seats were a bit uncomfortable and recommend asking for a table with a regular chair. we met the owner who was charming and a real passion for good service and even though they were staff down the service was...

Set in a very old characteristic building in the centre of Lichfield. Open beams, creaky floors with seating on two floors. Upstairs is probably better as some areas on the ground floor can be a little cramped when busy. The menu is small but still with variety. We have visited this restaurant on several occasions and have never been disappointed.... More
