A group of us visited for just a light lunch of soup. Little did we know we had to wait for over 30mins we were just about to leave then they came. All this for a bowl of soup😯 I don't think I will be back due to this😕 the soup was lovely but just not worth the hassle

Every pub should have a motto and 'No Bother' fits the bill for the Badgers where customer service - with a smile - warmth of welcome, hospitality, as a good a pint as I can remember and wholesome, decently priced food make for an unbeatable package.

Very central, very good pub grub, tasty and filling after a day of shopping and walking around the city! Something quite comforting about its unchanging ways, can always count on a good meal and a pint :)
