Lovely hotel, Nice atmosphere in the bar, staff where helpfull and the food in the restaurant was great (biggest creme brulee I've ever had !). We only stayed one night and in our room you could hear the church bell on the hour every hour, but it was not a major problem. We would definately stay again.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the badger suite for one night and thought the room was amazing. It was clean, spacious and had a hot tub at the bottom of the bed! We ate dinner there and the food was lovely! Bar staff could have been a little more welcoming and friendly - they said they would be taking... More

Nice hotel, stayed just one night due to a weeding nearby. On first impressions it is a beautiful building. Unfortunately we were not there long enough to taste the recommended food. However, I did stay in a comfy well decorated room (Bell Room), although comfy and welcoming I unfortunately got very little sleep. This was mainly due to the noise... More

I have visited the Badger 4 times and the food on two occasions was very nice but on the other times the food was over cooked and small potions, and also the outside service is very slow, you have to go in and ask them to come and take your orders, we asked twice for them to come and take... More

Dear Jacquelyn This is a hard one for me to reply to as we don't really offer table service in the outside areas at either pub. If we can, we do table service outside but like most pubs it becomes impossible to have staffing levels right when the sun comes out. Having staff on in case the sun comes out... More

We generally enjoyed our stay at The Badger but noticed a few details that would have made it even better. We were in The Plough room but there was no full length mirror which would have been useful and although a couple of glasses were provided there was no water. Some bottles or a jug of water would have been... More

Dear Phil Julie whom deals with the rooms and breakfast service was most upset when she read this, it was her day off, but Julie always says my rooms which generally sums up her passion for service levels. Since your stay if its Julie's day off we have put extra checks in place to try and ensure that this doesn't... More

Period building with all modern interior, very tastefully done. Bedroom, Solid wood furniture, simple, stylish, cosy and a comfy bed. Well stocked bar with REAL ale. I didn't have an evening meal but the menu was appealing. Porridge for breakfast though wished I had gone for the smoked haddock, spinach and poached egg. Highly rated, would definitely stay there again.

Dear Philip Thank you for the review, it gave us all a lift and hopefully the next time your in this neck of the woods on business you'll get your smoked haddock breakfast. If I'm honest its worth the trip from Northamptonshire. Many thanks again David More

What a friendly group of staff and what a fantastic night's sleep. My husband and I were in the Spinner room and we've never know such a comfy bed. Clean room, lovely bathroom, good food and beer. Everything you want and in a lovely setting.

We used the Badger as a stopping off point on a journey from Scotland to Heathrow only about 6 miles from the M6, arrived on a day when there was a village event on behind the pub so parking was a bit difficult but did not have to wait too long for a space to appear. Staff were very welcoming... More

Dear Brian Thank you for the fantastic review, the village event is once a year and I'm afraid the locals do go town as the pub was shut fro six years so with no land or car parking the village events were on hold. The tables were in a desperate condition and I'm. Glad to say they are all back... More

We came here for a meal on a Tuesday evening. From the moment we stepped inside, the owner made us feel very welcome, had a great sense of humour, and made sure we were well looked after the entire evening! The waitress was lovely, the food was amazing, pricing was very fair, and we didn't have to wait long between... More

We went because we had enjoyed a pleasant meal one Friday. The choice was standard for a Sunday and the starter tasty and generous. When it came to the main course it was massive and just overwhelming with a complete lack of subtlety. For some reason it was served in a soup bowl, which didn't help matters. Left most of... More

Dear PPguest I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy your main course after your tasty starter. Was it just the size of the Yorkshire pudding that put you off or the whole portion. We do serve certain dishes in large bowls and others on wooden platters, we can always put them on a plate for you if you ask any member... More
