Over a year since I last visited the Badger for food so called in for lunch with a little trepidation. My last visit at lunch time before Christmas 2013 was not one to live in the memory. However, fair dos.... things are a great deal better, both food quality but more importantly the quality of service and attentiveness were excellent.... More

I visited The Badger last night for a family meal, it is a beautifully renovated pub in a lovely "Chocolate Box" village. Out waiter did not have a full grasp of the English language, which caused some confusion, however he was very friendly and attentive. The starters (ploughmans sharing platter and soup of the day) were delicious. The 2 ladies... More

Spent a night at the Badger & we had a great time. This was a lucky booking for us, as we just wanted a night away from home. The Badger exceeded our expectations. The building was tastefully refurbished 2 or 3 years ago & has plenty of character. Our room was excellent, clean, spacious & had everything you need. What... More

Here in Cheshire we seemed to be blessed with gastro pubs which offer excellently cooked food at reasonable prices. My wife is a member of the Nantwich Soroptimists club which holds a New Years lunch each year to which the husbands are invited. This year we lunched at The Badger. The majority of the 30+ party opted for the two... More

Great food, beautifully served. Bit different, would say gastro pub standard. Lovely conservatory area where the restaurant is and lots of candles. Loved it.

This is my local.. But really enjoy everything about it: atmosphere, food, and service. Great outdoor seating: heater in the winter, for the smokers ..!! Lovely maintained garden during the summer. Relaxing , rural pub.

Went for lunch recently. The conservatory was beautifully decorated. There wasn't much of a choice of food, but they did do some gluten free food including fish and chips - which my coeliac husband thought very good. Service was good.

Dear Margaret We are slowly growing our menu, but as we don't use frozen and are limited on the size of the kitchens our menu is smaller than some of the big commercial breweries. We do offer other gluten free options and will be looking to extend this in the long area in the long term. I will pass your... More

I really enjoy the food at this place! I have been before and we decided to go with some colleagues from work as it's always good. Great service, lovely food and a great atmosphere.
