Visited last night before a concert. Had been before and recommended it to guests as we had enjoyed it. It was the biggest disappointment of our visit to Derry. A long wait for poor quality food served by an impolite waitress. When we asked about the delay she told us we should have asked!! The adjoining table had a worse... More

This bar is right next to the shopping center and is pretty central to the eating and shopping district of Derry. Add to that an eclectic choice of menu items, like beef naan, and it is great choice for lunch or dinner. I had the beef naan, which is loads of marinated beef with caramelized onions and red peppers between... More

Called into Badgers today for lunch with my daughter. When we got in I was sure we would be asked to wait for a table it was so busy. But we were acknowledged almost immediately andseated very quickly. The menu is good, nothing overly fancy. I had chicken wrap with garlics and my daughter had chicken burger with garlics. Along...

Absolutely beautiful food, nice atmosphere, staff were very down to earth and helpful. Appears pricey for a lunch initially but the volume of good quality food served makes it well worth the money. Wouldn't go here if you're in a rush (food arrived after a 15-20 minute wait) but if you need a break from shopping it is the perfect... More

Just been to Derry with 30 other blokes and basically camped in the Badgers. Fantastic hosts, fantastic Guiness, fantastic atmosphere and fantastic location. If you are in Derry, then you have to visit the Badgers for a drink. I did not eat in there but witnessed and smelt the glorious food coming out the kitchen. Just visit it !

Thank Stuthediver
