We hadn't visited for some time, but so pleased we went this Friday lunchtime. A lovely atmosphere and fabulous food- excellent value for money. The meatballs were a nice starter and the hand-made burger was amazing with the chunky chips. Great portion sizes and excellent food. Another trip soon is certainly on the cards!

We were staying in beautiful Lichfield for the night and went here mainly because of other reviews. It's always difficult when your experience differs from others, but here we go. We were given a table for two behind a pillar with flaky paint near the till. service ranged from over effusive, where everything was "perfect" and "wonderful" to longish periods... More

This has to be the most under rated restaurant in the Midlands. The whole experience is superb. The staff are wonderful , paying such attention to detail and going out of their way to please. The food is just wonderful, cooked to perfection, tasty and such excellent value . What a gem.

We arrived to find the staff had managed to accommodate us downstairs, which I was very appreciative.The meal came with very quick... More

Visited Lichfield for a couple of days and for the first time. We found it to be a very pleasant, interesting and happy little city. The cathedral is spectacular (I'm not that interested in cathedrals) but this one was architecturally imposing. So where to eat? the first night in the hotel and having seen the brasserie during a stroll we... More

Just returned from our 8 weekly visit to 1709. This was quite simply a brilliant meal. 3 courses plus a 1/2 carafe wine £25 for 2 !!!!! Monday night special - amazing value!!!!! The meals were all delicious with excellent portions. If your visiting Lichfield please consider a visit to 1709 - scrummy !!!!!!

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
