Enjoy an evening walking through the historic streets of Lichfield and its wondrous hostelries offering a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
The plan is to meet at New Street Station to get one of the frequent trains to
Lichfield (5.55 or 6.05) arriving at about 6.45 to sample most it not all of the following pubs:
6.45 - 7.30. Duke of York (Joules pub. Beer rarely available locally elsewhere)
7.45 - 8.30 Horse & Jockey (6 hand pumps)
8.45 - 9.30 George & Dragon (Lichfield CAMRA pub of the year. Marstons beers)
9.30 - 10.30Feathers (live classic soul and funk band , Midnight City. Marstons beers)
11.00. Train to Birmingham
If some of us don't want to listen to the live music, there is the Malt bar with a wide variety of ales nearer to the train station.
For those who have to get to stations between Chester Road and Duddeston, the last train is 22.35.
You can also see the home of Erasmus Darwin, the grandfather of Charles Darwin and the beautiful Lichfield Cathedral on our travels as well as a number of other historic sites.
