Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Lichfield Vaults

Located on a pedestrianised lane near the cathedral, this pub has two compact seating areas separated by a wood-panelled wall and the bar along one side. Basic, alehouse-style furniture, with a tiled floor at the front and bare wooden boards at the back. Patio beer garden out back. Having just come out of the Covid-19 lockdown, only two of the six handpumps were in use, offering Wainwright (£3.85) and Doom Bar.

Earliest records go back to 1793, when the pub was called the Dog. By 1850 the pub changed its name to the Old Dog. The Lichfield Brewery co was set up behind the bar in the early 1920s.
The present landlord Andy Loizou has been here for over a year and now presents the pub with his Greek cuisine. The pub consists of two rooms, which are oak panelled and the bar is on the right from the entrance. The front room displays detailed cornice work, large Georgian windows and a Tudor style sandstone fireplace.
There were five ales on handpump, we went for Caledonain Golden XPA. The food here was excellent.

The beers on offer were much the same as, if not identical to, OB's review of over a year ago. They were listed on a blackboard behind the bar: every one (from 3.8% to 5.1%) priced at £3.10 a pint. So I prepared to pay £1.55 for my half, only to be told that "the till says it's £1.60". I know it's only 5p difference, but that's a shilling to old folk like me, so I was left feeling ripped off. There are better pubs and more interesting beers to be found within a stone's throw of the Lichfield, and at far more reasonable prices too.
