A lovely place for a meal. Staff were very attentive and the food was excellent with a small exception which staff were happy to discuss and pass on feedback.

Been a few years since we visited and there have been some changes. Definite improvement on the decor and furniture. Couldn't fault the food which was delicious and value for money. Staff friendly but polite and professional. However as the restaurant got busier the service was slower - we had to ask again for our puddings.Just a minor point which didn't detract from our enjoyment of our visit.

Some excellent elements to this luncheon. Super Bisque, chicken breast roast fabulously cooked but would have liked a little 'naughtiness' with the gravy and chicken skin. Frangipane very tasty although pastry should be really much softer.

By far, the best restaurant in the Lichfield area. This is not pub food. Real chefs, real skills, ingenious, fabulous quality. Class food and service. Seriously recommended.

We visited for first time in years to try this out as a fine dining venue. Our expectations were more than matched. A wholly enjoyable experience, we will certainly put this on our list of favourite restaurants.

The Boat was recommended to us by the Head Chef at Wilderness in Birmingham... we decide to go with the Sunday Homework Session, even though we had no idea of what we would be served the quality of the food did not disappoint. Amazing fine dining experience

We really enjoyed the evening, but feel It would have been even better with more input from the chefs about each item tasted .

We had a lovely evening the only thing that could be nicer was the pre dinner drink seating. We were 4 and we were sat at a table in the bar area which felt a bit odd. We should maybe have gone straight to the table for dinner. However, food, service, first class!

The food and drink was nothing short of superb, service was fantastic, my only criticism is that some of the waiting staff seemed less knowledgeable about the various courses than others. Otherwise flawless
