Very nice and friendly good food

Delicious food, efficient and friendly staff...would highly recommend.

Thai Rainbow

15 Bird St, Lichfield WS13 6PW, UK – 01543 264209

One of my favourite Thai restaurants. The staff are very friendly and hopeful. The food is amazing and well priced. I would eat here everyday! The fish dishes are the best. Highly recommend this restaurant

Thai rainbow is a nice restaurant with a good atmosphere. We went on a Sunday afternoon for a 60th birthday so the place wasn't full but we weren't made to feel watched over either. Service was great, the food was lovely and the price was a nice surprise. Overall a lovely place to go for Thai food in Lichfield.

Bengal Tandoori

42 Bore St, Lichfield WS13 6LU, UK – 01543 263772

Absolutely outstanding curry! Great flavours, well spiced and freshly prepared. Here on business every 4-5months and there is nowhere else I'll be eating for the foreseeable future. Trust the recent reviews; these guys are good. :)

Have tried most Indian takeaways in Lichfield and to be honest this is the only one I personally would recommend. Food is glorious.. staff are very polite and didn't have to wait too long... which is great when you have hungry children waiting.. when I have a chance I will definitely go in for a sit down meal...

Paprika Indian Takeaway

65 Tamworth St, Lichfield WS13 6JW, UK – 01543 262672

As a takeaway: Indian restaurants are fairly ubiquitous. For me, it takes something to stand out. Paprika certainly does not. Having had two dishes, they were comparatively below average.

Delicious! 1 star taken off for slightly longer than expected wait.

Eastern Eye

19B Bird St, Lichfield WS13 6PW, UK – 01543 254399

Passing through Lichfield, decided to go in for dinner. Food was excellent and very tasty! The restaurant had a smart yet cozy and warm atmosphere, and the staff were polite and friendly. We mentioned off hand that we really enjoyed the food, so they pulled out a sample of curry powder to take home. That was unexpected, we look forward to cooking with it! Would highly recommend coming here.

I've been here loads of times and never been disappointed. This place has to be the best curry house in Lichfield. The staff are always so polite and helpful and the food is faultless. I will definitely be going there again.

Great food, great staff. First time going here last week, the service speed was good, the menu was exciting and seemed to have a little something for everyone, and the cocktails were very nice to go with our meal. Also liked the fact that you can sit either indoors or in the garden/terraced area. Perfect for summer meals out! Will definitely be returning.

Surprisingly good. I was very happy with food and service. Staff are very professional on Saturday teatime. They need to be dealing with tables of unruly kids not controlled by 'modern parent's. This review should be 2 star. It is 4 star because food was good and mature attitude of staff kept the food and drinks coming whilst the chaos ensued. Another crowd of kids came that were well behaved, so no problem with them. I think a stronger attitude to dealing with rude customers will benefit the restaurant in the long term. Visited the last Saturday of July.

Pizza By Goli

A lovely little restaurant. Small and intimate. If you love steak you have to eat here!! Somewhere quiet and personal.

Really like this place other than I cant change my meal selection because its always so good - fillet steak with Bolognese sauce - hard to describe how gorgeous it is!!

Frankie & Benny's

Walls Island, Birmingham Rd, Lichfield, Shenstone, Lichfield WS14 0QP, UK – 01543 483990

Food very nice. Service very quick. Staff very friendly. Had received an offer on my phone for the mid week £5.99 deal which included lunch and a drink!

Breakfast was perfect, very quiet in the restaurant this morning but employees are always cleaning and very attentive. Will definitely return, love this place

Went in here mid week with a friend for a couple of cocktails each, as a midweek pick me up . My friend had never been here before and she was very impressed with the place and the quality of the cocktails. A small problem occurred when I went to pay our table tab, 4 cocktails had become 4 cocktails and a lager! I pointed out we hadn't had a lager and the problem was righted. Though it really shouldn't have occurred in the first place, especially when the place was so quiet.

Fabulous little cocktail bar and the staff are incredibly friendly. Always remember you and make an effort to chat and interact with you. Nightlife is also great on Friday and Saturday. Definitely worth a visit only problem you have to work your way through the menu! Well it would be rude not too.

The Wine House

27 Bird St, Lichfield WS13 6PW, UK – 01543 419999

Beautiful food. Great service. Can't wait to return.

Finally managed to use a gift card we received 2 years ago. No expiry date which is good. Both of us had the bottomless cocktail christmas lunch. Lunch was ok. Cocktails a little weak although kinda expect this when its bottomless. Managed to try a few off the cocktail menu including the festive inspired ones.

What a find! While strolling around Lichfield we came across this delightful continental style drinking establishment. Loads of different beers from across the channel, each served in their own glass as it should be. The walls are decorated with posters, mirrors and such which increase the ambiance of the place. There is also an upstairs room (not visited) which is visible on the wall-mounted TV. The centre of it contains an old map chest but sadly no maps. If you are a drinker of non-UK beers (and lagers) and you are in the area do call in. But remember to save me a seat.

This is a fantastic bar! The selection was second to none! The bar is sociable and very friendly. The bar staff where able to help out in recommending some different Belgium beers that otherwise you would of never of tried. Great choice of Gins, Rums & whiskeys as well as loads of others. We got to meet Paul & Wendy the owners and they are very welcoming and the history of some of the decor is very interesting. This is the gem of Lichfield.


Lichfield Chinese Restaurants

Lee Garden

50 Tamworth St, Lichfield WS13 6JJ, UK – 01543 418515

Great food. Good service. Timely. They even do chips. Good variety of food and not what I would call expensive either

Good service, nice lunchtime menu but potions not that big. Very tasty.

RUBY Cantonese and Chinese Restaurant

29 St John St, Lichfield WS13 6NU, UK – 01543 251144

The all you can eat buffet isn't exactly a buffet. It's table service and and a menu. Diners choose a set amount of dishes, depending on party size, from a comprehensive menu. So a table of four chooses six starters, after which they can choose more starters or move on to mains, where five mains plus rice can be ordered. Again, you may choose more before moving onto dessert. Food quality and service were excellent and all of our party enjoyed the food they ordered and the option to try what others had ordered, since portions are large enough for each course to be enough for everyone at the table. Be aware that there is a £2 premium per person for any dishes that are duck or prawn based.

Superb! Best value in Luchfield - top quality freshly made dishes. Great!

Lichfield Vegetarian or Vegan Restaurants

Ego Mediterranean Restaurant & Bar, Lichfield

New Minster House, Bird St, Lichfield WS13 6PW, UK – 01543 258234

Hen do...lovely inside, busy but it was a Friday night. Food was delicious. However service can definitely be improved. We sat for ages with dirty plates in front of us, waited for a long period between starters and main and had to ask for pudding. I had great choice as a vegan, couldn't fault that however the vegan crumble was brought out with normal ice cream on so they changed it and then it came back with out any ice cream yet vegan ice cream was on menu.

Lively and convivial. Lovely setting overlooking the pool and easy access from town. Has a feeling of 'being on holiday' and 'cafe culture '. Food and fun cocktails all good. Service is friendly and attentive. One negative... The noise level impedes conversation and can be overwhelming when it's busy.

McKenzies Restaurant

1st Floor, The Corn Exchange, Conduit Street, Lichfield WS13 6JU, UK – 01543 417371

The space is really nice, as are the staff. We were there on a Sunday and the restaurant was empty apart from us, so it was lacking a little bit of atmosphere. As for the food, their lunch meal offer is good value for money, and the food is what you'd expect for the money. I've given it 3* as the food tasted like average pub food serving high calibre food rather than a quality restaurant. I didn't try the steaks though, and it is a steakhouse so maybe that would be better!

The food as amazing, service great and decor lovely. It would have been nice if there was access for disabled people. We had a family gathering and a couple of family members were unable to join us as they couldn't get up the stairs.

The Plough at Shenstone

2 Pinfold Hill, Shenstone, Lichfield WS14 0JN, UK – 01543 481800

Amazing meal out! Went for Sunday dinner with 8 of us in total. The food was well prepared and cooked to perfection. The service was also first class. Even taking care to keep food warm while our friend was feeding there baby. Great portion size and full of flavour with a warm atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Return visit on 25 June 2018, Sunny afternoon and just in time for lunch, why else would you be self employed. Startes followed by sandwiches, once again the food was great, just look at the starters, Garlic Mushrooms and Thai Fishcakes. Keep up the good work .......Great food, just read the menu on the website you'll see what I mean. Great service and great price. Just held our works christmas function there and it was everything we could have wanted. Thank you to all the staff.

Brewhouse & Kitchen - Lichfield

1 Bird St, Lichfield WS13 6PW, UK – 01543 224740

I spent the whole time thinking it was a Brew Dog pub to the point of arguing with the wife about it. She ended up googling it, proving me wrong and doing a humiliating victory dance in my face for 5 minutes... but I digress... I’d recommend a pint of Mimosa (the name of a beer not a full pint of prosecco and orange juice, I’m not insane) Nice place would recommend

Lovely food. Staff very pleasant and friendly. Just lacked atmosphere.....it was lunch time and we were the only people there.
