I have been to Badger's Bar on several occasions and have never been disappointed yet. Great choice of food from snacks to lunch time dinners. There is a great ambiance in Badgers and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. There is a lot of memorabilia displayed on the walls giving you an insight of the city. If you like... More

We stayed a night in Londonderry and Badgers was recommended to us as a place for dinner. The food was great and the crowd was fun. Ended up staying a bit longer for pints and good conversation with the locals.

Recommended to me by a Derry native, we were not disappointed. Very quaint pub, slightly more on the expensive side almost all mains around £10 for pub grub but good quality and there were loads of vegetarian options. I had a beef and guinness stew in a yorkshire pudding which was great and my friend had a vegetarian enchilada. We... More

What a great place to relax after Walking the Derry Wall. Happy, friendly& most attentive staff who specialize in good PUB food plus choice of drinks. We found a nice spot upstairs , crowded with soccer fans watching Europoean Cup. I think this is what we all hope for when contemplating Ireland . Good pub to meet after "the Rugby"... More

Worst pub meal I'vee ever had including a really horrid one I had once in the Harbour Bar, Mullaghmore..I imagine their excuse would have been that they weren't going to serving food in Badgers for much longer that day...the muck we received should mean that they're never allowed to serve food again.

Whenever we're in Derry, we make a point of fitting in a visit to Badgers for lunch or dinner. It is right in the heart of the city, very near the Millenium Forum and shopping centres. Parking is difficult, so it would be best to use the multi storey, unless you're lucky enough to find a space on one of... More

Me and my husband visited after a long day of shopping I was so hungry and couldn't wait for some good pub grub ! I ordered the chicken enchilada & he ordered the beef! Thinnest one piece of beef I've ever seen! Chicken was literally the precooked frozen crap and the sauce was like just tomato purée it was that... More
