Dining at Darwin’s

The service made us feel special such a nice man. The food was excellent more than enough to eat and so tasty. We will definitely go again food that good shouldn't be missed out on.

A really lovely meal, beautifully presented in pleasant surroundings. Portion sizes not huge but just right for me, struggled to finish dessert and I only had ice cream. The Poached Pear with crumble looked lovely will probably try that next time.

We had a beautiful meal and the staff are extremely friendly, great service, will definitely go back and recommend to friends and Family.

We had our wedding meal at Darwins one year ago and returned on our first anniversary. was not let down at all by the staff, food, atmosphere, service. whole thing was a perfect experience and was made to feel very special again.

My friends were down from Glasgow for a birthday meal with myself and every one commented on how nice the whole experience was, pleasant service, nice relaxed atmosphere and most importantly great food. I would have no hesitation in making another reservation for future special occasions

Fab night and fantastic food, staff very friendly. Nice mix of people and ages. Thanks for a great evening.

I cannot recommend The George Hotel and it's amazing staff highly enough. From the moment we popped in to discuss our wedding to the day of the wedding the experience was brilliant.

Our Wedding day went smoothly with Phil and Tim talking us through it and being by our sides the entire time. The venue itself is perfect for a wedding.

We went for an upgraded inclusive package with Robert Yardley a local photographer and 3 Tier cake from Sugar Surgeons. Thank you so much for making our day extra special.

I had the pleasure of staying at the George Hotel over the Christmas period as I was visiting family in Lichfield. My visit was made all the more pleasurable by having accommodation in the Hotel.
