Pig & Truffle

20 Tamworth Street, Lichfield, Staffordshire, WS13 6JJ

Pub overview

Become the hero of Lichfield! The Pig and Truffle, with its city centre location and outdoor area, offers a real opportunity to stand out in the growing city of Lichfield. This pub has all the key ingredients to succeed with a location just off the market square, large kitchen and ample car parking, making it perfectly placed to provide a daytime coffee offer.

With a planned refurbishment, we are looking to extend the garden and modernise the interior so that it really differentiates itself from the competition, being the perfect place to spend a relaxing afternoon with coffee and cake, or a catch up with friends over a pint.

Offered under the Local Hero agreement, we are looking to work with a partner to embrace the location of Lichfield. This will be through the offering of local cask ale, available through 50% free of tie pumps agreement and a locally sourced menu, working with butchers and bakers to provide high quality food that can’t be found anywhere else.

The Pig & Truffle is a one bar operation with the bar counter central to the trading space. There is a patio area at the rear that leads onto the pub's private car park. The kitchen is an ample size for the pub and is 'theatre style' being open to the bar area.

A Local Hero pub is a traditional, welcoming, proper pub at the heart of the local community. As a passionate cask ale enthusiast, you will support your local suppliers by serving locally-sourced food and offering the best cask ale in the area.


The unique Local Hero Agreement is designed to share risk and reward. There is a simple royalty charge, based on net turnover, payable to Greene King.

Benefits of this Agreement include:
• 50% of your cask ale is free of tie, so you’ll have the best range in the area.
• A discount on Greene King’s own brand cask ales.
• Rent reductions.
• Flexible marketing support for all occasions.
• An enhanced training programme.

You will need to follow the Local Hero Operating Procedures and score highly in the Mystery Shopper, Beer Quality and Quarterly Audits to ensure you’re able to maximise the profit from your business.

You will need to estimate the turnover you expect to achieve from the pub, with regard to food and accommodation (if applicable). Barrelage figures are given to assist you with calculations.

Calculators to help you are available on the business planning section of our website.
