I've been here with family, friends, romantic date all occasions and it never fails to impress. The good is excellent and very high standard no matter what you order. Service a laid back but efficient N the venue is quirky and full of character. Great value for money for a casual night out for dinner.

Fancy a leisurely meal with friends on a Friday or Saturday evening, then avoid 1709 at all costs. Two hours is all they allow you. We went last Saturday not only were the sweet dishes collected before we had all finished there was no time for coffee. Twice we were told they needed the table and we hadn't even been... More

The starters came in unusual wide-brimmed bowls which didn't flatter the portions sizes, but they proved to be quite adequate. Our mains - the butternut squash risotto with bhaji and tuna chilli fish cakes on salad were great. There's a lot of competition in Lichfield for midweek 2 course fixed price menus but 1709 are consistently the best service, value... More

It's got to be really good for me to write a review and this one really was. Despite being a fairly fussy vegetarian I found myself struggling to choose between 2 delicious sounding choices, eventually opting for the pea and mint soup followed by the saagaloo with homemade onion bhaji. Both were really tasty and the portion sizes were spot... More

Went here last week what a fantastic meal we had. I had a gluten free meal it was a great meal but one thing do check its the gluten free meal when it comes as each course did have to be taken back and a gluten item taken off

If I am in Lichfield with my parents this is the place we come to eat. The menu is great and the food is incredible quality. Beautiful food for as much as you would pay in a pub-chain for 3 courses for basic food. Always had a good meal here and I would definitely recommend it. My only issue is... More
