Good value for money

we had dinner here last week, menu was decent with lots of choice, service was very good but the atmosphere was lacking, our table was by the window which wasn't a issue but the room was quite dull with little décor, maybe they could do something with the lighting, the food was good value for money... read more

Had lunch here today and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. How wonderful to have bread, olives and water delivered to the table without asking for it! Good range of choices and very good value. Will definitely visit again next time we are in Lichfield.

We arrived on a Friday afternoon at approx. 1300hrs and was met by a friendly member of staff who looked after us for the entire meal. The décor was warm, relaxed yet with a high end café feel rather than restaurant but very welcoming I might add. The menu was interesting and the waitress understood the finer details such as...

We just have to say what a wonderful experience my husband and I had at this lovely restaurant last Saturday. Service attentive but not overbearing, beautiful food and not over the top but very nicely presented and extremely tastey. I love a good bottle of wine and I certainly got that in a lovely Rioja at a very reasonable price.... More

Decided at the last minute to have a birthday treat. This place never disappoints. Lovely staff just the right side of attentive without rushing you. Free bread and olives a bonus. I had the scallops with black pud and peas and the salmon pasta and hubby had the mushrooms and fish and chips, both lovely. A nice glass of rose... More

Went here 4 of us for a family meal let month. There is a great three course meal for less than 20 pounds. There is a supplementary menu with steak and other things that you can pay up to ten pounds extra for a fillet steak. The wine is also very good and the waiters and waitresses let you try... More

Visited this restaurant with a group of friends. We took advantage of their meal offer...3 courses for £18. I had soup to start...carrot and coriander which was homemade and absolutely delicious. I am vegetarian and as there was only 1 choice I had to have that. It was stuffed red pepper which turned out to be lovely. However, beware if... More
