A quick post today regarding a recent visit I had to The Lenchford Inn. Technically this place isn’t in Birmingham (there’s nothing technical about it; it’s in Worcestershire) but it’s a lovely riverside setting for dinner, so I thought I’d pop a bit of information on here in case it’s of interest/use to anyone.
The Georgian hotel and restaurant overlooks a picturesque stretch of the River Severn and offers award-winning gastro-pub grub. The garden area around the back is stunning, with a backdrop of boats and perfectly calm water.
Despite being a little dated in terms of decor (it still pretty much looks how I remember it over ten years ago) it’s full of old school country charm, as are the staff. I sometimes forget, living in central Birmingham and mainly only dining in the city centre, it’s nice to escape to a quiet rural spot. And it doesn’t get more country bumpkin than this.
Plumping for mains only, I chose the Sea Bass with Prawns Special (£11.95) which came with a lemon butter sauce, baby potatoes and salad. The fish and prawns were well cooked and tasted fresh, and the pan fried skin was crispy.
This is a lovely little countryside gem and is worth a visit for lunch or dinner if you happen to be on the look out for a restaurant around the Bewdley/Stourport area, but fancy something a bit more rural. Plus, Stourport is bloody awful, so just get in the car and enjoy somewhere prettier *wink*
