Yet another treat.

Would advise anyone to visit here. Smoked fish is class and our friends had various dishes which were all excellent. All staff were very attentive making the train journey from Ballymena worthwhile.

Good service, good beer, good vibe. Stick to the basics when ordering, and you'll be less likely to be disappointed. One of our group ordered leg of lamb and was less happy than those who had burgers and chips, for example.

As well as all the other previously stated reviews can I also add that the young staff went above and beyond usual service, advising me, a slightly disabled person of a way out of the restaurant with fewer steps to negotiate, great help. Thanks Badgers

Early evening meal for mother in laws 60th birthday. Warm welcome and friendly atmosphere. Staff helpful and friendly but not in your face. Menu has plenty variety without going overboard and the food was delicious. It's a pub, but the food is a bit more than pub grub and I could have eaten until I burst. Didn't try the Guinness...

From start to finish, our evening at Badgers was stellar. The staff was great and they were very helpful with menu decisions. The food was delicious. The bartender poured a great pint and made an amazing Irish coffee. Loved our experience here.

The town Derry has such historical significance to Ireland that you must stop here. Badgers is clearly a neighborhood place, yet you'll feel very welcomed. The waiter took an interest in our trip and made touring and food recommendations. We had fish cakes, bangers and mash, and a couple of drinks. Great introduction to this major historical locale.
