A Lichfield restaurant is celebrating after being highlighted in the latest edition of the Michelin Guide.

The Boat Inn was again awarded a ‘Plate’ or L’Assiette symbol recognising it “simply serving good food”.

Liam Dillon

Staffordshire currently has seven Michelin ‘Plate’ restaurants with The Boat Inn, owned by Lichfield-born Liam Dillon, still the only 3* Rosette establishment in the county.

During lockdown, the restaurant team have been delivering their Heat @ Home meals across the UK, with Liam and other chefs creating live lessons on Facebook explaining the dishes and how to cook them.

Liam said:

“It’s a great honour to again be recognised by the Michelin Guide.

“We can’t wait to open again, but in the meantime our Heat @ Home dishes are keeping us busy. 

“And the live Facebook videos are great fun but keep us focused, ensuring we are always coming up with new menu and dish ideas.”
