Local gem

Great local restaurant - best in lichfield for value for money. Always enjoy our meal whether it's 3-2-1 on Monday evening or Sunday lunch. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Had the cheeseboard today and it was excellent with a lovely home-made chutney. Thank you.

We visited Lichfield on a wet winter day & decided to give 1709 a try for lunch. Wow!!! 3 courses of excellent cuisine for less than a tenner. No wonder it was busy. Not that they could not cope, everything was served well without undue delay. There was an excellent choice of all 3 courses. Only fault was the wine.... More

We have eaten her on many occasions both for lunch and dinner. Each time we have never been disappointed. The menu changes frequently and has a wide range of dishes at very reasonable prices. There is also an very reasonably priced wine list. The food is always of high quality and well presented. The staff are always professional and courteous.... More

When I first started going here it was called Pastiche, so called I'm told because it's an anagram of 'it's cheap'. It kept the same formula when it changed names & although not cheap, it is good value. It's based on a two or three course fixed price menu which changes on a regular basis. Always plenty of choice &... More

The Monday evening menu of three courses each for two people, with a carafe of house wine to share, for £25 is excellent value. Unfortunately the waitress who took our order was less than friendly. I twice had to ask for some tap water and was rudely told on the second occasion that it would not be served until she... More
