The goal of the restaurant is to provide the highest quality, locally sourced produce cooked with great care and presented in an innovative style to please the eye and satisfy the pallet.
Congratulations on the excellence of the food. You are to me the new third restaurant in the gastronomic desert that is Staffordshire. I hope to see you in the Good Food Guide in due course. My only real criticism, was that the attention to my wife and I at the beginning of our visit was not 'up to scratch', presumably from the pressure you were under from the numbers of persons that were dining. The behaviour of a few customers towards yourselves was somewhat ignorant. Dr David Nokes
Pig’s head snack was unusual, unexpected and fantastic. Service was attentive and friendly - Michaela (our server) was lovely
Great evening, good food, wine selection and service. Chef cooked everything well. Nice touches like taster on glass dish with information on cards. Good selection of foods on the set menu or Al a carte choice. Relaxing, comfortable atmsphere. The time between courses was perfect.
service a little clunky although very friendly. Food excellent quality and very good value
We really enjoyed our visit on Friday night. We sat at the chefs table which was really good and Liam came over to speak to us. Liam was very professional, Friendly and also very helpful and so were all the staff. We had the 6 course taster menu which was Devine and we will definitely be returning soon.
We had a fab time.
Very impressed. WIll be back soon!
Very impressed after first visit, will certainly return & recommend to family & friends!
I was expecting a little better than we actually got ,my son and I had the 4 course tasting good menu which was not great and they tried to serve us same course twice which then made next course late.
We had an exceptional meal. I haven’t been to The Boat for a couple of years although my wife and her mother have, but we all thought the lunch was excellent and a higher standard. Not just the food but the service, maitre d and waiting staff were all ‘on their game’. We look forward to returning soon.
Lovely modern, cool decor, delicious food and very helpful staff who know their product. I loved the fact that there is no service charge, and that water is free - as it should be - as was the roll we were served plus the extra one we requested! Such a refreshing change from being charged for every minor request. Other restaurants could learn from this level of service. My dining party enjoyed the Sunday lunch and cannot wait to try the midweek a la carte selection
Stunning food and fab service, can't wait to come back.
Absolutely brilliant celebratory meal. We were treated impeccably from the second we walked through the door and all our allergy requests were dealt with sensitively and efficiently. We can’t wait to come back.
Lovely evening and beautiful food! We were treated very well and felt very special x
Really friendly staff and atmosphere
Fantastic wine tasting evening.
Wonderful to have(at last) a restaurant in Lichfield serving well sourced, presented and delicious food. Will visit again soon.
We had a lovely family meal to celebrate my husband’s 40th birthday.
Excellent food, wine and service, thank you. We were joined by our closest and life long friends who were overwhelmed by the evening and they both said that the choice of food was excellent and that it was superb.
Very helpful young female waitress and older male helper - sorry forget the names. Best service at a restaurant for ages and the food - ah to die for, see you again soon! Very quick service especially considering it was a Friday evening when we dined.
Food was very good. The drinks selection was also excellent. Great atmosphere. Waitress brought the wrong wine, in fairness we didn’t notice at the time but perhaps needs a better knowledge of the menu.
Amazing food, lovely setting and a very attentive waitress.
Great dinner. Will be back.
Loved it, food is brillant. Deserves a Michelin star.
Absolutely fantastic food. A little more expensive than we usually pay but it's the difference between usual food out and a delight on the palate. Well worth the small additional cost. We will be bringing many people here with us to experience how delicious food can be.
