Same format indeed it is Karen and David. Myself and three friends all agree, good beer, served well, nice snack and friendly banter from behind and in front of the bar. We will be visiting again soon.

The Duke of Wellington re opened on the 15th of April 2011. Same format, still serving fine cask ales. Karen and David welcome you all

Just another social club raped by Enterprise Inns. It surely is time for a victim support network against this irresponsible destruction.

CLOSED DOWN. The pub finished trading on New Years Eve and has been emptied of all furniture. RIP

This is effectively our local and my Dad, a real ale enthusiast, informs me that their beer is good stuff, well kept and served.
It's pretty much got most things you could ask for in a traditional pub from our experience.

Friendly place, quite small inside but with a (fairly basic but reasonable) garden out back to sit with kids and dogs.
Not in the centre of Lichfield but only two minutes out and well worth a visit.

One of the best in Lichfield.

This pub has a good choice of well kept ales, I have called in several times. The service is good and there is a mixed age range of the local community all having a good time in a plasant atmosphere. I agree with other comments, that it can get a bit crowded around the bar area and woe betide those who try and get in the front door. On a busy night, use the side door if you want to blend in.

I had the good fortune to watch England take the ashes in this pub on Sunday. The atmosphere was great with everyone enjoying the event. The beer was up to standard. What really topped the afternoon off was the landlord gave everyone a free pint to celebrate the victory. Great atmosphere. great quality beer and excellent service. The pub also has a large, secure beer garden and plenty of parking. I shall be returning, slightly more often than every 4 years.

We sometimes call in here for a beer when passing through. There's usually about 6 real ales on offer and they also have Thatchers Heritage cider on handpump. Beer is always in great condition and this weekend was no exception. Pub is very much a locals, community pub and the regulars, staff & owners are friendly. They have a real fire in Winter and a large beer garden for Summer. Infact there's probably more outdoor seating than indoor. Deserving GBG entry and previous award winner.

This is an excellent pub. The pub has a beer garden and the brick exterior shows the age of the building, whereas the inside is far more modern, perhaps a little too so. A few TVs are dotted about for the sport. The clientele were of mixed age, but seemingly decent - i agree with doctorpint, a community pub. The lady behing the bar was very friendly and welcoming.

The beer, apart from the usual taps, there was Abbots Ale, Adnams Bitter, Marston's Pedigree, Deuchars IPA and London Pride of the more regular handpulls and Copper Dragon Golden Pippin and the local Enville Ale, which was top notch. One of the top three pubs in Lichfield, a little walk out of the town, but not to be missed

This is primarily a 'community pub' and whenever I have been the place is full of locals all enjoying themselves. The landlady and her bar staff are friendly and efficient and the place has a good atmosphere. Although there is a room at the rear the drinking area is an odd shape and gets rather crowded, (I recommend using the side entrance rather than jostling drinkers by using the front door). The beer range is varied and usually includes some from small local breweries. Needless to say it is kept in excellent condition. I can definitely recommend Burn's Night when free haggis and neeps are dished out to all and sundry.
