Formerly a stately house, the tastefully refurbished The Hedgehog is now a rustic gastro-pub with old world charm. It serves traditional British pub cuisine, has an Innkeeper’s Lodge, and takes pride in its large and pretty gardens with outdoor seating. Furnished with a cosy hearth-fire, patterned red brick walls and chunky dark beams, The Hedgehog in Lichfield is an enchanting countryside pub.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Hedgehog menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Hedgehog ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Hedgehog is at the edge of Lichfield in Staffordshire, only 7 minutes’ drive to Lichfield Trent Valley Train Station.

    Food very nice seemed to be the pretty general comment from my 10 strong party, however this was eclipsed by the rest of of the email. Lobster and prawn cocktail was very well received. My calamari is really liked the crispy crunch was it Japanese 'panko' breadcrumbs?
    Pudding order forgotten somehow by staff and only served up as staff were clearing down at the end of the day after a certain amount of badgering by my party.
    When your staff clear a course either tell us to keep our eating irons (cutlery) to eat the next course or bring us some more to eat the next course like a 1 star 60's french restaurant used to do. Don't leave it to customers to work out.
    Don't serve a sticky Toffee pudding and custard with solely a fork! Or is this all part of slide a time when we all ate with our hands ?
    I have eaten in the Hedgehog a few times albeit a few years ago and enjoyed the experience, but this was pretty ghastly episode and I can't see me putting my family reputation at risk by returning anytime soon.
    Wine glasses bought to table straight from the dishwasher not fully dry and still warm.
    Wine uncorked away from the table.
    I suppose that as we were a big party and able to book up on mothers day weekend at short notice obviously those who know restaurants have already voted with their feet and moved out.
    Please pass on my apologies for ill directed anger at the bar man when I paid my bill , IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DIRECTED AT THE (TOTAL LACK OF) MANAGEMENT OF RESTAURANT and our thanks to the waiter who sat us and took our order for the first two courses with whom we have no problem but we lost contact with him and then it descended into chaos.
    I cannot recommend this restaurant to my worst enemy let alone a friend.
    I can't see this summary of our dining experience ever being exposed to a third party

    Went as a party of seven to celebrate a family birthday. Table we were shown to was fine. When we came to order I was told that the vegetarian main course was sold out. The waiter only offered a burger or ceaser salad as an alternative. I asked if the chef could do an alternative and was told that was not possible. I am surprised that it is not possible for a chef to make up a simple vegetable pasta dish. I settled for having two starters for a main course. Not ideal. The waiter did not seem concerned. I also heard him telling other tables a list of thing not available. A bit disappointing to be honest. Not sure if we will return.
    I realise that restaurants run out of things when busy, but the staff attitude was that they were not bothered.. a little bit of effort would have made the experience a lot better.

    Brilliant from start to finish! Our waiter was excellent and the food was delicious.

    I visit the hedgehog on the last Thursday of every month with a fairly large group of ladies. Over the last year the food and the speed of service has improved. Unfortunately last Thursday a number of items on the menu were unavailable. Two ladies ordered the smoky bacan ribs, which were all bone and fat and inedible. The price was deducted from the bill, but the waitress (one we've not seen before ) seemed to think it was their fault for not complaining sooner.

    Table ready when we arrived. Staff welcoming. Very good atmosphere.
    Our order was taken quickly and the meal arrived promptly. The food was good, but it would be nice to see more variety on the menu, especially as we use the restaurant regularly.

    The meals were fantastic and full of flavours. I loved the Mexician salad with salmon and a side order of chips! Presentation was excellent and the staff very polite and friendly. We will go again....Hopefully soon!!
