40-44 Tamworth St., Lichfield
www food
Thrales is a charming Olde Worlde restaurant set in the centre of Lichfield. It's old dark timbered ceilings and little inglenook corners are quite charming. Food varies from a GBP12.50 set 3 course menu to GBP15-20 for some main dishes. Menu varies, but expect a good choice of fish, meat and poultry dishes. All are nicely cooked and presented. Oh, and the cheesecake is fantastic.
The Tame Otter

The Tame Otter is one of a growing breed of pubs in the UK, owned by Vintage Inns. Offers a good choice of dishes, all reasonably prices (GBP5-10). The menu is the same everywhere, but you'd never know it. I was lucky enough to have a Vintage Inn as my local for a while, so I was glad to find this one. There are a couple of others in the surrounding area.
The Red Lion

The Red Lion serves pub lunches during the day, but also has a restaurant for both lunch and dinner. Dinner is from 19.15 onwards. A nice selection of dishes, with a 3 course mealing costing GBP15-20. As most things are fresh cooked, some slight alterations to set dishes are possible. Rooms are comfortable, en-suite with television, though there isn't a phone. For further information see the Red Lion's website.
Getting about...
  Although a pleasant area to walk around, you will need a car to get about. Most places, like Hopwas and Pinwall, are miles from anywhere.   You can get to the area by train, with West Coast Main Line stations at Nuneaton and Tamworth.
