Have just written my review on booking.com as booked through them. Would definitely recommend as perfect place to break journey on M6. Very comfortable environment, with friendly and helpful staff. High standard of cleanliness throughout. Excellent breakfast choices, well presented and delicious!

decided to stop here en route between London and Scotland, trying to avoid impersonal chain hotels. The Badger certainly didn't disappoint. Good selection of real ales, real fire and good range of food. Everyone really friendly. Excellent value for money.

Fantastic place to stay. Booked the Badger Suite with jacuzzi and the room was fantastic. The food and beer was exceptional and would highly recommend to all. The setting is ideal with a lovely church next door, my only regret is I couldn't stay longer in such a great pub.

Having wanted to drop the kids off at their granddad's at Winsford and meet some friends from Nantwich we met half way in Church Minshull we arrived at The Badger. Thankfully we weren't disappointed. The service was top notch and the food was very pleasant. I had a superbly cooked rare steak; my wife had a beautifully slow cooked Ox... More

Dear Matthew Many thanks for the great review, you can bring the little ones with you as well next time if you so wish. I take it you'll be having crème brullee on your next visit.

I recently came to the pub with 15 other members of my family. The food was enjoyed by all (I had the steak pie which was excellent) and the service was very good. There was also a real fire which I think is a must in a rural pub in winter but alas is often absent. The pub is an... More

This is our second stay at The Badger and certainly won't be our last... We booked the Badger 'suite' as a final Christmas/new year treat before work on Monday and definitely saved the best til last! The suite was large and nicely furnished with modern oak furniture. I do think a bigger seater/corner suite would have been nice in the... More

The Badger is a classic Cheshire Country Inn that has been tasfefully upgraded to provide clean, comfortable and high class accomodation. It is situated in the quiet, historical hamlet of Church Minshull, but is close to the Crewe conurbation. Anyone who is looking for a quiet, high quality hotel when on business in the area should try the Badger to... More

The Badger has that homely country pub feel, while serving great food and providing a very good standard of accommodation. The bar serves a variety of good beers and ciders at a good price, the wine list is also excellent. I am currently working in Cheshire and if the Badger could serve breakfast at 7.00am I would stay there full... More

Dear Jem What a review, even though we couldn't accommodate all your needs, ie breakfast. I'm afraid we only have five rooms and it doesn't become financially viable to start at 7am. As soon as it is I'll be the first to let you know, we are always looking at improving our service and I will bring this up in... More

I booked the Badger for a 2 night stay in December after reading overwhelmingly positive reports on Trip Advisor. I was not disappointed. All staff, including the owner/manager, were welcoming and helpful. The owner even let me use his mobile to phone home when I could not get a signal. Both nights I ate in the bar since I was...
