We walked up to 1709 at the recommendation of a bartender at a pub by our hotel, and thankfully they were able to fit us in -- I'd recommend booking a reservation, as it was a lucky break they had a table available for us. What a lovely meal! The menu changes on a weekly basis and appeared to feature... More

I've been to 1709 on a number of occasions before. I couldn't give them top marks this time. The food was of it's consistently high standard but service was not at it's best last night. We ordered bread and olives to accompany our drinks...the order was forgotten. We had to ask for wine glasses... I think the staff were busy... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. I asked for the dietary information about the menu and explained I was vegan. The waitress explained what I could have and checked with the chef to see if anything could be altered to make it vegan friendly. I had a starter and a main and they were both delicious! The waitress also... More

A centrally located brasserie in Lichfield. A good menu, if not extensive, at a reasonable price - but the food on the menu is presented very well. Attentive staff and good service.

Ordered the burger with cheese only. My partner had the blackened Cajun chicken salad. The chicken was very tasty but the salad consisted of just a few lettuce leaves so he felt he could have eaten a side of chips or something else. Burger came with the works including relish which I hate. It was taken back to the kitchen... More
