Went to badgers at about 9 pm on a sat night and it was very quiet. Having said that it was pleasant and had a comforting feel about it. Drink was on the expensive side, probably used to being a convenience to the Derry millennium forum. Decent if you don't mind paying that bit extra for your drink. We didn't... More

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.
