I have eaten here a few times over the last few months and heard some good comments. But every time I've been in to eat there has been issues every time! Food not cooked right, food missed off the order, not arriving at the same time, one member of staff argumentative over a basic order in front of the table... More

I have been going to the Badger Box for many years, & it was always good value pub grub. Unfortunately I have been a couple of times in recent months and the quality of the food has gone down considerably. I took a friend last weekend and we both had the gammon & it was disgusting. The gammon used to... More

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
