Good pub atmosphere, friendly greeting with helpful and efficient staff. Less pretentious than many of the gastro-pubs springing up but still refurbished to a high standard. Decent menu, with a good selection and tasty food. If being slightly fussy, I would say the sole was a little overcooked but still very enjoyable. Good, freshly cooked breakfast. Our room was the...

This is our first visit to The Badger since its refurbishment and it will not be the last. Being a Saturday evening it was essential to reserve a table as it was very busy – thank goodness for the air-conditioner. The welcome was slightly unprofessional and the table was rather cramped, but neither detail spoiled the evening. The menu was... More

Nice premises with friendly staff and a good, varied menu. A very enjoyable evening! A slight hiccup with our host’s meal but this was quickly rectified and our party was divided between 2 tables which meant our host had to keep getting up to speak to all his guests.

Dear Shires96 Thanks for great review, the hiccup was entirely our fault and I believe your host was pleased with the outcome. We did tell the lady that arranged the party prior to your arrival that we couldn't fit 24 people on one table because of the shape of our dining area. I personally waited on your tables and if...

Visited here a few weeks ago with my wife, as I work locally to the area and always wanted to try the place out. We attended at lunch time, and were seated with minimal fuss. Orders were taken and the food was served not long after. The food was good, and was reasonably priced. The creme brulee was massive and... More

Dear Brett & Claire Thanks for taking the time to write a review especially such a positive one off a senior reviewer. The salt I'm afraid is a problem with the salt and pepper mills. Its annoying for the staff also as you wipe the table you lift the condiments and its there again. We are looking into this but... More

We visited the Badger on a Saturday evening and what a pleasant experience! At last we have found the magical combination of professional waiting staff and fantastic food at affordable prices. We didn't have to wait long at all after ordering for the starters to arrive. There was no sign on the plates of any frozen (bland) food re-heated in... More

Yummy lunch on a sunny day, salads were massive and delicious and the owner made a hat out of a napkin for my little girl! Definitely recommended.

Dear Catherine Thank you for the lovely review, we loved having your family dine with us. I hope the little princess persuades you to come back sometime soon, but I'm afraid I only do hats and boats. Many thanks for writing a review for us David More

Finally got round to trying this with a colleague for dinner. Starters and main courses both very good quality and portion size was just right. Washed down with an excellent pint of Black sheep and a very nice Argentinian Malbec!
