Darwin's AT THE GEORGE Modern British FOOD in the heart of historic lichfield

logo large

A man well ahead of his time, Darwin loved great food - so much so that in his later years, he had to have a semi-circle cut out of his dining table so he could sit at it comfortably!

Named after Erasmus Darwin, one of Lichfield’s most famous sons and a self-professed lover of fine food, Darwin’s restaurant at The George Hotel offers you a relaxed yet fun dining experience, each evening from 6pm. Combining great food and service with stylish decor, Darwin’s is the perfect setting for every occasion – from friendly gatherings and family celebrations to romantic, candle-lit get-togethers.

Our chefs use only the highest quality seasonal produce, locally sourced wherever possible, to create innovative and delicious modern British food. With dishes catering for a range of tastes and dietary requirements, and a wine list to suit all tastes and pockets, there really is something for everyone at Lichfield’s new premier restaurant. We're open each evening from 6 - 10pm!
