Excellent little countryside restaurant.
The food is well priced, aimed at families while keeping the quality of the meals high. Tends to be very busy on Saturday & Sunday evenings, but excellent for lunch midweek - grab a seat by the fire and enjoy an ice cold cider.
Plenty of parking available (as there's no real pedestrian access from Stafford Rd) - and the gardens are large and look beautiful in the summer months. Lots of space for kids to run around, and a very decent outdoor eating/drinking area.
Nice pub. Good food and the perfect place to take your little ones.
There's plenty of space to stretch out, both inside and outside. Lots of parking, and a nice lawned area for playing on.
They've got a few rooms upstairs too, but I've never stayed there
Bland food, indifferent staff, Lichfield has a high number of excellent places to eat, this is not one of them.
Go into town instead
A lovely family orientated pub serving excellent food. The pub is fairly large so a good selection of tables, can be very busy though so expect to wait for a table, I have never had to wait more than 15 mins though. The staff are friendly and happy to have children dining.
There is a large area to dine outside in the summer and a large green for children to play outside.
The food is always good and the open chicken pie is always a favorite with my family.
Lovely garden makes this a great spot on a summer day. Food and drink are reasonable fare, not outstanding but reasonably priced and service friendly. Stupid car park where inconsiderate people block everyone else in though!
This is not somewhere I would particularly choose to go but it is ok for a meeting place on the way to town. It is a typical franchise pub with no individuality, the food is ok but there can be a big wait. The staff are friendly enough and drink prices are reasonable for Lichfield
This is quite a nice little pub, it is comfortable but it can get very busy at peak times. The beer is reasonably priced and the staff are friendly enough. Expect to have a big wait on food if at peak times and sometimes it can be a bit poor but the menu is quite good with a variety of choices.
I have eaten at this place twice and found service to be quite poor.I ordered two seperate meals and was told they hadnt got them.very over priced place with mediocre food
Lovely food and nice atmosphere. Loots of parking and great lawns for the kids to play on in summer. Hotel on site too I think.
Whilst it is true that the outdoor space is great for children on a sunny day I would avoid it when it's busy. The food is nothing special but generally ok but a couple of times when busy I have had poor meals. On these occaisons we have waited a long time for food (over an hour) and then food has arrived cold or overcooked.
If you go here go to enjoy a laid back afternoon in the beer garden rather than for a quick lunch.
Lovely large pub with a nice atmosphere. Food can be a bit hit and miss, but only when it is busy. Lots of alcoves where you can hide away for privacy. It is very family freindly.
This was our first visit to the Hedgehog. A lovely old building in very pretty grounds and even though its on a main road you dont really notice it.
We visited on a lovely warm sunny Monday lunchtime so decided to sit outside - the area was clean and tidy with both smoking and non smoking areas. The place was quite busy even for a Monday so I imagine at peak times it would be very full.
I went for the £10 lunch meal deal, my partner picked from the full menu. My breaded mushrooms were hot, crisp and obviously freshly cooked, the pea and asparagus quiche was just nicely warm with crisp pastry and plenty of parmesan. The chocolate brownie was slightly on the stodgy side and the accompanying ice cream wasnt great quality with lots of ice crystals.
My partner went for the scallops and chirozo to start - he enjoyed every mouthful. For mains he tackled the enormous mixed grill. Although the meat looked dry to me he said it wasnt over cooked - he didnt manage to finish it, though. The Eton Mess he had for dessert wasnt the best - it had a lot of yoghurty liquid swishing round the bottom of the glass and was a bit light on meringue.
So the food is ok - fairly standard pub fare and for £10 I thought my meal was good value. Our main problem was with the service. The waitress was really friendly but she seemed to be the only one serving in the whole garden area. We waited a long time between courses which ate into our afternoon. Fortunately it was such a lovely day sitting under the parasol wasnt too much of a hardship. I think we would go back to the Hedgehog but it wouldnt be our first choice and we'd definitely steer clear of peak times if we were looking to eat.
