A brand new wine and tapas bar has recently opened in Lichfield’s city centre. And in the spirit of Christmas, Egle and Abid, the managing directors, are very kindly offering free food and drink on Christmas Day to those in need. 

Poquito offers a wide selection of mini dishes and tapas, such as patatas bravas with black garlic aioli and pan fried gambas in chorizo, garlic and chilli oil, paired with a huge variation of cocktails, wines, and beers.

With the atmosphere being so cosy and friendly you are guaranteed a warm welcome from the team – if you’re a massive foodie or looking for the perfect meal out, this modern, trendy bar is definitely worth the visit.    

With everyone feeling the affects of the cost of living crisis, Poquito is generously offering anyone who is lonely or struggling this Christmas a warm place to sit and have a free meal and drink.

We spoke to managing director, Egle, to find out more.

“It has been a dream of mine for many years to own a little wine bar. This has turned out everything I have hoped for and more. My business partner Abid and myself own an aesthetics clinic in Sutton Coldfield and we went on this new adventure in hospitality together as well. I am from Lithuania originally, but have lived in Lichfield for 12 years now. I love this city and it feels like home.

“Abid and I have seen a gap in the market for a tapas and wine bar in the city which is such an established foodie place. Opening week has been everything we have hoped for and we want to give back to the community which has supported me and my hair and beauty salon over many years. 

“We regularly try to get involved in charity work within our other businesses as we both know what it means to go through hardship. 

“We have both come from poor backgrounds and had to work very hard to get where we are now. We would love to give back and support families or lonely people this Christmas Day especially given the difficulties so many people are facing this winter. 

“We will be open 10am-2pm serving hot food, tea and coffee free of charge. Even if it is just to pop in for a chat or to keep warm.

“A couple of local people have volunteered to help out on the day as all our staff will be having a well deserved day off. 

“We are really looking forward to welcoming everyone on Christmas Day.”
