About The Trooper

Seasonality and local produce are at the heart of The Trooper. We go to great lengths to seek out and work with the best suppliers. Wherever possible we use British growers or farmers. We strive to always work with companies that share our vision and passion for great produce.

Our wood fired oven has come directly from Italy to our kitchen to give you that authentic taste at your local. Our chefs have worked to create a pizza menu for you that's just a little bit special...

Our longhorn steaks are reared on Huntsham Farm in the beautiful Wye Valley. Huntsham Longhorn beef has been produced for over 200 years and is hung for a minimum 35 days. This ensures the fine grained, well marbled meat reaches its ideal maturity and full flavour potential.

Our chefs have tailored our menu to give you a great selection of different dishes. From succulent chargrilled steaks, market fresh fish and homemade burgers. We are also more than happy to cater for any special dietary requirements here at The Trooper.

Join us for a drink in the bar. Choose from our great selection of ales, carefully selected wines and spirits and take a seat in the warm surroundings next to our open fireplace. When the weathers on our side you can take it outside and enjoy the outdoor lounge area, great for relaxing with friends and a sharing plate. We also offer full table service on the terrace so you can enjoy a full restaurant meal in the luxury of the sun and great views!

Were all about quality, great steaks, great wines, great service and great times!

We love traditional roast dinners with friends, family and proper produce. Why not try our sharing table where you can enjoy a whole roast joint with all the traditional trimmings with your family and friends. Please ask for details.

It was too dark so couldn’t read the menu and had to use mobile phone torch! Quiet but expected mid week but service could have been a bit quicker taking into account how quiet it was! Food was lovely but no specials available like other restaurants provide! Friendly staff.

Food was lovely, service was excellent, we were sat in the corner and it was very cold and we were overcharged for 2 glasses of prosecco but it was all sorted in the end. I would still recommend due to the service and food!

Very good food. We had the cod cheeks and bubble and squeak as starters both excellent. Main course was ham eggs and chips and mushroom burger, again excellent but the latter we though was quite expensive for what it is. Also ordered caulii cheese and trooper mess both very good. Previous visit we had a cauli steak, which we found over cooked and again poor value. I really enjoyed the food, but my wife who is veggie, not so much so. Also enjoyed the drinks: estrella dam, sav blanc and shiraz.

Mixed review, service was a little slow, sole of the food amazing and some average. The starters were all delicious. Pigs in blankets, crispy beef, and scotch egg. The steaks were very disappointing for the price, not much flavour and the ribeye did not look or taste like a ribeye was very tough. My fiancé had the Sunday roast and it was amazing and great value at 14. The steaks were very overpriced for the quality and taste. Great atmosphere lovely open fire, would go again and order the roast, stay away from the steaks.

I returned tonight after dining with you several Times and enjoyed a very good meal. 3 weeks ago we came and the meal Tasted good but the whole experience wasn’t good. I left a review but thought it was a one off. We returned tonight. Enjoyed 2 drinks in the bar where I had to remind the staff we where there. Waited a long time in a quiet restaurant to order food. When our starters arrived I had the scallops. They where burnt the bacon was cremated and the peas hard. I was hungry ate it but when I was asked if everything was ok told the waiter I wasn’t impressed. He said he would tell the chef and his manager. Know one came over and addressed it. My husband had the calamari that was also dry and had nothing on the plate but 3 pieces of chilli. We have had this before and was very good. But not tonight The mains came out but the side orders took almost ten minutes and was cold. Again didn’t want to make a public spectacle and told the waiter. We asked for the bill and left after spending £125. Where I would of received the same type of meal at weatherspoons. Sorry to say I won’t return to the trooper. I’m very disappointed and feel deflated. Tel: 01543 480413 [email protected] The Trooper, Watling Street, Lichfield, Staffordshire, United Kingdom, WS14 0AN Powered by ResDiary

I dined at the Trooper on Sunday 27th January with my Mum and partner for my birthday. We had the bottomless lunch and it was fantastic. The service was great and the staff very friendly. Our waiter Zain was absolutely incredible! Extremely attentive without being over the top and he ensured our drinks were always full making sure we got the most out of our lunch. The food, although took a while as it was a busy Sunday, was lovely and I would definitely recommend The Trooper to others! Thank You

Food was okay not an option for more gravy on roast dinner. Took a while to be served and quite noisy as it was busy couldn’t here friends talking. Pudding was delicious, staff were really friendly.

Came for bottomless brunch and food was overall good quality and good variety of options. The service for food was fast and cocktail menu was amazing! However, service was disappointing, waitresses were not attentive at all and we had to request a prosecco top up numerous times! We felt almost neglected and a lot of us left feeling disappointed with the service we recieved. Service has been immaculate other times I’ve been Trooper but this particular time think waitresses seemed moody and unattentive.

So disappointed. Our third visit to the trooper in as many weeks and there was a problem with each visit. Our starters were fine, very tasty. Three of us ordered different burgers and they were all very dry and tasteless.The beef dripping chips didn't seem as if they had seen any dripping! they were like frozen chips and soggy.There were many people having the bottomless lunches and we expect people to get loud when they are drinking a lot but 2 tables were excessive and shouting out very loudly so that we couldn't hear ourselves or have a conversation. It was ridiculous. One party of lads were swearing disgustingly loudly and they were asked to leave eventually. We had a 4 year old and 6 week old with us and I think if they had kicked off 'm sure people would complained about them, but for some reason it is okay for adults to behave badly in a restaurant. It was not a nice experience for any of us and decided not to have desserts and go home. The manager did apologise to us and gave us a £50 voucher to return again. This is supposed to be an upmarket restaurant and their prices reflect this, but the standard of the food and clientel has sadly let it down. The manager didn't tell us how long the voucher was valid for, I hope it doesn't expire the same time as the black friday vouchers,
