Restaurant & Micro–Farm

Our Story


Since 2017, The Boat has been our home. It has evolved over the years and continues to grow with the ambitious creativity of chef owner Liam Dillon.

Liam’s career spans some of the country’s top kitchens, starting in London with Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley, Five Fields (1*) in Chelsea and Story (2*) by Tom Sellers in Bermondsey. He was inspired internationally with stints at Quay in Sydney, Noma in Copenhagen, and at Eleven Madison Park (3*) and Gilt (2*) in New York, before returning to his hometown of Lichfield in search of a place he could call his own.

In the beginning, the walls and décor may have resembled a roadside pub, but endless renovations and tireless efforts from the whole family have reinvented our restaurant into a place for Liam to share his knowledge and passion for refined, British cooking with a lightness of touch.
