Description: After a great first year of trading at The Boat Inn, we are continuing our efforts to focus our attention on creating a quality lead food and beverage hub in lichfield. Inclusion in this years Michelin Guide being a great stepping stone. We are also proud to announce that head chef & owner, Liam Dillon, has been presented with the Best Chef Award at the Midlands Food, Drink & Hospitality Awards 2018! We have been very fortunate to be able to refurbish the pub so our guests can relax in comfort with our selection of Fine beer, wine and cuisine. New goals have been created with the new year, with the outside area for our own pigs as well as our chickens.

Every time I eat here, they seem to somehow make the food even nicer.
Having dined at numerous Michelin rated establishments for business/pleasure The Boat Inn is most definitely at the top of my list. Crab appetiser was sublime and that honey and lemon desert is a work of art. Keep up the hard work team! I’ll see you again soon!

Newly renovated and with Liam Dillon who has an excellent pedigree, at the helm, it looks very promising. The food was excellent and the service was professional but friendly. As you would expect in a fine dining restaurant the portions were small but we certainly did not leave hungry! We were liked it so much that we are returning to try their Sunday lunch. They close Monday and Tuesday. Really hope this restaurant does well as we could deal with an alternative to the Birmingham Michelin Star restaurants. As someone who lives in Lichfield it would be great if we had our own Michelin Star restaurant!

Came here for lunch had a fabulous meal, the starter was goats cheese with beetroot and pine nuts which was delightful! Main I had steak which was cooked to perfection. Brilliant selection of wines and gins. Love coming here, had excellent Sunday lunches here. The tasting menu is an array of flavours and certainly not to be missed if you get the opportunity!
The refurbishment has certainly brought a wonderful homely feel to the bar area and restaurant and the open kitchen is phenomenal ! With a perfect function room for a special occasion.
Will be back soon, thank Liam and the team for bringing your skills to Lichfield.
