Looking at Lichfield

Thanks to readers’ suggestions, I am expanding the blog to include all of the West Midlands – Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire and Staffordshire. If you have any restaurant recommendations, events news or tips for local producers please let me know.

Lichfield Food Festival

Duncan Hindley

I picked up a leaflet for the city’s second food festival, as I liked the sound of the farmers market, world menu and real ale trails, plus the best of local brewers two-day event in the Guildhall. (Details of the Best Local Brewer are on the Drinks page).

Demonstrating their culinary skills at this weekend festival are chef Paul Gilmore, who will be cooking recipes using local Staffordshire produce and Duncan Hindley who will be making artisan bread. From Saturday 31 August to Sunday 1 September http://lichfieldfood.co.uk

Le Reve opening

La Reve Bar Lichfield

Walking down Bird Street, I spotted a new opening for August. According to their website Le Reve Bar will serve sharing platters and cocktails with a DJ and late license at the weekends. Not sure that this constitutes a “whole new social concept” though! http://www.lereve-bar.com
