Visited Badgers twice during our recent visit back home to Derry. From the minute we walked in, we couldn't get over how lovely and friendly the staff were. We were told to take a seat and drinks were brought to us. Great atmosphere and the place was buzzing. Came back on the Sunday for dinner, and stayed for 3 hours!... More

I really like this bar and restaurant. It's very family friendly with a relaxed atmosphere. The staff always go out of their way to make customers feel welcome. It gets busy at lunchtime so get there early. They offer a very wide selection of food. I have enjoyed everything I've eaten here. They also offer a wide selection of drinks.... More

Always made to feel welcome. The food can be a bit hit and miss.I find it quite nice for paninis, toasties, lunch type things but no... More

I can't imagine going to Derry and not calling into Badgers. There is always a welcome and the beer is well kept. The food is not gourmet, but it's good home cooking with generous portions. There was a festival on during the weekend of my most recent visit, so our large group had to go upstairs. The atmosphere isn't as... More
