Good all round.

Friendly service, good menu with some good deals and a very pleasant ambience, Good Parking at Restaurant and clean toilets. And there is a stuffed Badger in a display box!

A very pleasant meal, well cooked, well presented, by competent, attentive staff, who always make you feel welcome. With Real Ale of a good selection, and reasonable cost all round, a pub I can heartily reccomend!

I hadn't eaten here for several years so I gave it a go. I wish I hadn't The food was okay, just about acceptable, but served cold on cold plates. Nice staff and clean place but not good and never will be when the food's cold!. Save your money.

I went to the Badger Box for a colleague's going away party. Being from the U.S., I am always looking for good "Real Ale". This place had a great selection. The bar staff was very knowledgeable and very friendly. They spent time with me discussing the types of ales on cask. My visit was very enjoyable and I look forward... More

I was invited with my family to meet a friend and this venue was selected. I had never been here, but had a quick look on TripAdvisor and was puzzled by the stunning reviews. A chain pub? That good? I am happy to report it is. Great staff, great food at amazing prices. It is deserving of the hype. Me,... More

Me and my family like the menu here because it has a good variety of food and is relatively cheap. There are only ever 2 people serving at the bar so it takes a while to get served. The man serving me and my mum took our food order then started making the drinks. He have us our drinks except... More

Really busy so expected it to be really good! I'd say it was as expected....big menu, average food, service okay. Overall cleanliness was good and staff were all very nice. Liked the Thursday night take away dessert idea coz I was full after main course but the option to take free dessert away is brilliant

The badger is my local pub and I drink there most Friday's. I do occasionally go there for a meal with family or friends. I must say with the new hungry horse menu the badger has certainly hit the spot. The staff and service has always been good but for me the new menu has really made the difference in... More
