Good lunch experience with a group of friends

Visited as a group of six in July for lunch. We received good service and the meal was excellent, enjoyed by all present. Visited again in August this time just for a drink and an equally good experience with well kept beers. Some advice for those visiting from the canal. The road can be rather... read more

Me and my visited today for a quick pit stop for lunch. First appearance was how smart this place looked. Was expecting it to be busy but was just right. Lovely modern and clean pub. Great staff and good prices. I had fish and chips and my wife had chicken salad. Both agreed it was ok. I had a few... More

The attractive premises promise a great eating experience, unfortunately, the reality is a mediocre meal from a disappointing menu. Will not be returning anytime soon.

We like The Badger. The food is generally good, its a pleasant building and it has a great outside seating area. However the girl behind the bar and the waitress were as miserable as sin. No conversation faces like thunder and no thank you's. I think they thought they were doing us a favour which is always annoying when you... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hosts Stephen and Ruth at the nearby Primrose Cottage B & B. Good standard of food and service in modern extension to heritage building. Good offstreet parking in a local village is a bonus. Most enjoyable and reasonable value.

We are long standing regular customers of The Badger and all the family love it! However, this is the first time we have never given 5 stars. We booked a table for Sunday lunch today and waited 35 mins for main course. We then waited another 35 mins for cheese board and small glass of wine. We had to cancel... More
