I've been going to Badgers for many years it's a great place especially for lunch. Staff extremely friendly and food very good. When family are visiting from England, Badgers has to be included as part of their visit.

Ate in badgers quite a few times and the staff are always very friendly and the service is great. The food is also good but lacks consistency!! Days we could go in and it's very well presented and tastes great and other days its bland and unsavoury. Think consistency is the key and would make it a fab place to... More

Been in Badgers a few times now and there is always a friendly atmosphere and the "Nothing is too much trouble" attitude. Badgers gets a big thumbs up from me. Was assisting in the recovery of a lorry that got stuck in the snow today and the manager invited me and two colleagues in for a bowl of soup to... More

I went here with my mum for Sunday lunch yesterday. It was terrible. The place is still spotless and staff are still friendly, but the food here was dire yesterday. I had a vegetarian pasta dish which was fairly average considering the price. My mum had a fish dish (haddock I think) with a side of the worst looking onion... More

Badgers is a must for everyone. We visited for lunch and received excellent service. This is a lovely pub with plenty of pictures and displays showing the history of Derry. It was very cosy too. The bar staff were excellent and the food was just to die for. Everything was excellent and very reasonable priced. We will be back.

Was in Derry sight seeing, and doing a bit of shopping, we were told to visit this restaurant, and be in for a nice suprise. We visited before lunch time, and the place was already very busy, but we were shown to a free table, the menu is very varied, and everybody is catered for. The gentleman who came to... More

Stayed in Derry at the weekend for Halloween.After danderin about for a bit, we called in on Friday afternoon for a bit of "refreshment". On entering the bar, the first thing you notice is the lovely decor that adorns the place. Now, when you go to the bar to get a round in, the second thing you will notice is... More
