A Lichfield pub has welcomed its first customers after reopening under new owners – and with a new name.

The Quill and Scholar has launched on Tamworth Street after the site had stood empty following the closure of The Crown. 

A multi-million pound refurbishment was carried out by new owners, Heartwood Collection.

The project means the venue now features a separate bar and dining room as well as a heated rear terrace.

Design features include a wood-burning fire, snugs and tiling, while a large sklylight to the rear has created another additional space.

Richard Ferrier, CEO of Heartwood Collection, said:

“We are really proud of The Quill and Scholar.

“It was important to us to recognise Lichfield’s history in both the name and the design.

“We have been looking for the right pub space in the city over the past few years and are delighted we found this one.

“We have made a significant investment at The Quill and Scholar and hope it will become a hub of the community for locals as well as visitors to the city.

“Our fantastic team cannot wait to get going with it.”

Richard Ferrier

Visitors will be able to enjoy seasonal food menus and curated wine list alongside local cask ales, beers and cocktails, while a bespoke kids menu will also be in place.

Four-legged visitors will also be welcome in the bar and terrace space.

The pub is very nice inside however after one drink I had to go to another to get over the shock of the price of their drink I hope they do well but I can’t afford to waste money in the place

Lucky enough to visit last Wednesday. Cannot fault it – delightful meal and well staffed. A great addition to Lichfield.

Probably like many, sadly the desire to see the inside of a pub has become jaded since Covid 4 years ago, taking advantage on only 3 occasions in that time, so it would be hypocritical to wish this venture well. Despite the accolades for this one, although residents of Lichfield District it requires a 20 mile return jaunt for us so another discouragement.

Went in today.
The serving staff were very good,attentive and one loved my dog so that was a bonus.
Prices are high and the food was OK but the chips reminded me a bit of McDonald’s and I was expecting something more bespoke ,maybe nice chunky chips ?
The leaf salad was with a French dressing that had no taste ???
The Burger was very good.
Sausage was very nice and we both generally thought the meal was good.
Hope they do well.

MNo5 have you tried The Gobbledegook yet? Much closer to where you live. Easy to understand pricing policy and the menus are written in plain English.
