A little pub history
Originally called Lyncroft House the now beautifully restored pub sits in its own grounds and large gardens, with ample off-road parking. Built in 1797, 13 years after the death of Lichfield's most famous son, Dr Samuel Johnson, the building retains its character thanks to a recent £1m restoration project.
Charming local accommodation
Our nine bedroom Innkeeper's Lodge continues The Hedgehog's tradition of welcoming travellers. It's our local charm that attracts office staff and ramblers, as well as diners and drinkers from Lichfield and nearby Longton, Arlewas and Shenstone. We also welcome business and leisure travellers to enjoy some of the best bedrooms and accommodation in Lichfield.
