“Fresh, high quality, lunchtime snacks”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Although The Food Room is a little out of the way, away from the main run of shops and restaurants in Lichfield, it is a place that dishes out decent quality sandwiches, baguettes and soups.

There is space in the small building to seat a select few guests. The seating is fairly basic but once a few people are sitting around you the atmosphere quickly perks up. The service can range quite widely but is usually fairly personable. The staff are always efficient despite the rather large queues that occur most lunchtimes.

The food is good quality. There is a set menu of sandwiches and baguettes as well as a chalk board of specials that is changed most weeks. Baguettes are cooked on the premises and the sandwich fillings are imaginative and tasty. Price-wise, the baguettes are above average but the difference in taste is worth the extra fee pennies.

Overall, The Food Room is a great small-business success story for the City of Lichfield. The staff work hard to deliver consistently fresh and high quality food. The recently-installed fittings give the place a more upmarket feel and underline how this place genuinely differs from the mainstream run of the mill sandwich outlets. The Food Room's steady queues of followers each lunchtime are testimony enough of the quality here.

“Excellent fodder..!”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Eat here regularly; they do a great tuna melt and a fabulous tuna nicoise. But they dont just do tuna; the specials on the board are always varied and interesting. The staff are pleasant and welcoming and it is well located near to Minster Pool and the Cathderal and there is a great antique shop next door. Go andnive it a visit!

“Expand Please!!!!!!”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Food is AMAZING, gormet sandwiches to die for. But, and these are only small issues. The venue is far too small. Avoid lunch, the queue is out the door, if you are sitting be prepared to wait. Longer than i think is reasonable but worth it. They never disappoint the taste bud and always give service with a smile. These girls have a brilliant product and a loyal customer base, they just need to expand, be brave and go for it.
