A lovely lunch with a friend with 2 courses for £7.95. The goat's cheese caesar salad was great and there was enough to share between 2. I had cod and parsley mash which was lovely and my friend had the salmon and really enjoyed it. We shared a beautiful tangy lemon mousse for desssert. Glad we booked as it gets... More

A little quiet on the night I went.Given that it was a Friday evening close to Christmas I would have expected this restaurant to be bustling. However the food was hot and okay. Just a little lacking in atmosphere.

I came with a group of friends but had never been before, I'm definitely making the husband take me again though! Such welcoming and pleasant staff, we were very promptly welcomed, seated and given complimentary bread, olives and water. The staff were very knowledgeable about the menu too. We ordered out starters and they were quick to arrive. We were... More

The best word to describe the whole experience is colorful, from the beautiful interior of the restaurant to the wonderfully pleasant staff and the actual dishes themselves. We came on a Monday lunchtime but the place was still busy. Our starters were stunning, I had the pan fried livers which came on a black slate with a beautiful long line... More

We met for lunch. Good food at reasonable prices and enough choice for everyone. Lovely staff who kept everything moving but not OTT. Happy to visit again.

Returned here after a reasonable lunch a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, this time, it was just an average/below average experience. The starters were fine but all of the main courses elicited a 'could cook this better at home' feel. The salmon was overcooked and therefore dry, the lamb 'tough' and the burger 'okay'. It was good value but I think... More

There are many restaurants serving lunches in Lichfield, but it would be hard to imagine finding one with better food or better value. The surroundings are clean, bright and unfussy and the service friendly and attentive. At under ten pounds for a three course meal one might expect small portions or dubious quality. Our lunch was definitely neither. The portions... More
