Fantastic service. Love that you noted my request for a discreet table to talk at as it was a first date and fantastic gin knowledge by your bar staff

Lovely and relaxing ambience with great service. Only criticism is that the main course (roast beef) should have been a bit hotter - probably the plates were cold, and served with a roast parsnip (but we are from Yorkshire!). Yorkshire puds were fine! The price is higher than average, but not outrageously so.

Service was brilliant. We requested the chef table for our first wedding anniversary however unfortunately it was booked but we were then offered the chefs table tasting menu which was amazing and a definite recommendation. We weren't rushed at any point and they even went above and beyond with my husband's dislike of desserts and instead he had savoury. Would highly recommend and will definitely be coming back soon.

All aspects of the meal were delicious. The taster plates provided an opportunity to try something different. Well done to the chef. We will be back

We had a wonderful experience. The service was particularly excellent from initial greetings through to staff making a note of my partner's birthday & my dietary requirements. The food for all of us was delicious. As a vegetarian, I was so impressed by the inventiveness of the dishes on offer. We will definitely return.

Lovely attentive service as always. Comfortable atmosphere in bar area for afternoon tea. Food delicious and plentiful. Being a "savoury" rather than "sweet" person I would have enjoyed some pickles included in the salad accompanying the sandwiches to add a tartness to the flavours. However, I did manage all the cakes including the delicious scones, all the better for being served warm. See you again. Sue Bignell.

We had the early dinner set menu and thought it was fabulous value for money. The service was great, attentive but not overbearing. It was very quiet so lacked a bit of atmosphere but we dined early so expected.

As always, Thursday evening provided yet another fantastic dining experience. The Boat Inn is without doubt the best Restaurant in Lichfield and one of the best restaurants you could have the pleasure of dining at, full stop. I am rapidly running out of superlatives with which to describe the food on offer and the service is exceptional as always! Special thanks for letting us try the “LFC”, it’s a marvel and I definitely see a spin-off venue on the horizon! Already can’t wait for our next meal, thanks again Liam, Corin and the team!

We were disappointed with the service, even though it was lunch time and we had the set menu we expected better service. The waiter reached across the table numerous times. At the end of our meal as each person finished their wine the glass was removed from the table swiftly - Michelin Star???

We had a really enjoyable family lunch. The whole team at The Boat Inn were welcoming and helpful and accommodated our needs. The food was very well prepared and presented and reasonably priced. Thanks to all at The Boat Inn for a lovely afternoon! Will definitely return.

Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We loved that you get a little taster and bread with the tastiest whipped butter we've ever had. All the food we had was exceptional. The best we've had locally and no wonder it's featured in the Michelin guide. They've redecorated inside and the new decor adds to making this a top class experience.

We arrived early, but as the web site says come early and enjoy a drink we thought it would be ok. We told the hostess we were early and she showed us to our table. This was 1.10 pm 40minutes later we had not been offered a glass of water, I walked to the bar and requested som one take an order for drinks, eventually at 2.00"a drink arrived 50 minutes after being seated! We ordered and the service then picked up. Food was of reasonable standard and good value. Unfortunately an appointment at 3.15 stopped us from ordering coffee or desert.
