Good food. Good value.

Had a lovely meal here. Good service, lovely food and good value for money. Didn't find that there was much choice in Lichfield so a good find.

My husband and I eat here probably every 4-6 weeks usually at lunchtime at the weekend . The menu is always varied and I am always spoilt for choice on the main course with generally a couple of great vegetarian options as well. Food is always fresh, hot and includes local produce and some creative ingredient mixes that are always... More

Was looking for somewhere to eat one Saturday lunchtime. A local observed our deliberations and asked if we needed some advice. She recommended 1709. At £7.95 for two courses and an interesting menu we decided to give it a go. We were shown upstairs, as the place rapidly filled up. Various starters were enjoyed by my wife and friends. I... More

However, visit was spoiled by a large, really noisy group seated on the ground floor who had no consideration for other guests whatsoever. Consequently, everyone else had to raise their voices to be... More

Busy restaurant with a lively atmosphere and good service. Food isn't very imaginative but what we had was good.

Met my sister for lunch today, couldn't make up our minds where to eat so suggested to give 1709 another chance. They normally have a great looking menu, but some dishes are a bit deceiving . I opted for the mushroom starter on bruschetta which was quite nice. The main course which both my sister had was crab and tuna... More
