Liam Dillon

Liam Dillon is chef and owner of award-winning, The Boat Inn in Lichfield, Staffordshire.

With previous experience in some of London’s and the world’s best kitchens, think Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley, Eleven Madison Park, Daniel, Gilt, and Tom Sellers, Story, Liam has returned to his hometown with the goal of raising the bar of Birmingham’s dining scene via the opening of his first solo venture, The Boat Inn, in 2017.

Liam’s cooking is inspired by his travels in Australia, where produce was king and he has applied the simplicity of cooking with premium ingredients to the menu at The Boat Inn. The Boat Inn intends to open the palates of locals by introducing different flavours and techniques, challenging us to think out of the box, and courting the attention of a Michelin star.
