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. 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.
