We haven't been to the Badger for some time after a poor experience when it first re-opened. We couldn't have had a more different experience this time. It was a busy Saturday evening and service was a little slow but that was tolerable as we were catching up with friends. The staff were pleasant and attentive and the food was... More

Arrived at 4pm on Saturday and checked in, we were given the room 'Oddies'. We were very well attended to by the lovely Tasha. The room is superb, lovely and spacious, comfortable bed, well furnished etc. The bathroom is a reasonable size and the shower was fantastic, really good pressure and endless hot water. Went down for dinner, couldn't fault... More

Me, my partner, and parents visited today for my birthday meal. We were served by a lovely young woman who was more than helpful, friendly and efficient. We had a lovely meal and really enjoyed ourselves. Only for it to be ruined when we came to pay. I went to join my mum who was paying for the meal and... More

I can't thank this place enough! I called in recently on my way home from work as there was a car accident further up the road which was blocking the access to my home. I called in and asked the staff if they knew how to get back to my home without going the way that was obviously blocked off.... More

Really friendly staff. The food is excellent as is the selection of real ales behind the bar (try the Badger's best). Our room was clean with kettle, tea and coffee etc. Small en-suite with a great shower with no shortage of hot water. The only minor grumble would be that we both found the bed mattress very soft. We will... More

We went to the badger with our daughter and son in law for our Xmas meal ( instead of xmas presents) which we have every year. It was very busy but we had booked. The staff were very friendly. My daughter and I had the fish platter to share which was very nice. My daughter and I then had crispy... More

Although we live locally we opted to stay overnight as we were joining a group of friends for dinner on NYE and did not want to drive home. The standard double room was very comfortable, the breakfast excellent even though we didn't really need it after the superb meal served to us the previous night. Highly recommended!

Dear Richard Thank you for joining us for New Years Eve and I was pleased to hear that you enjoyed it so much, even with a dodgy Elvis. We all had a great night and hope to see you again soon. Many thanks for the review David More

We called in here for Sunday lunch. As we were passing about 3.30pm we called in for something to eat. The place was very busy and there were a couple of large parties in. We were asked if we had booked and when we said we hadn't were told that it could be a 40 minute wait. We didn't mind... More

The suite also had a lovely spacious power shower room wet room and a bathroom. Also a separate lounge, the meals were fantastic 😃very highly recommended... More

This evening did not start well !!! We had checked out the wine list on the website before arrival, when we asked for the wine it was not available ( two white wines). We finally chose a different one and when it arrived it was not chilled, we were told it was kept in the cellar and not the fridge,... More

Dear Magels Thank you for the honest review and I will thank Philip the general manager whom I presume dealt with this when I go down stairs shortly. The wine lists are now on my list and hopefully before you return they will be updated and I will ensure the website follows shortly afterwards. Many thanks again for taking the... More
