We have visited here for tea the last two Tuesday evenings and found the food to be very good and great value, we had three meals and a soft drink each and a bill for £20. The staff are friendly and helpful. Good car park with easy access.

This pub used to be a regular eating hole for us for the last 30 years and we were always well satisfied with our meals. When it changed to a Hungry Horse Pub we were worried because we saw what happened to the Paddock Pub at Derby when that changed to a Hungry Horse Pub (the pub cleanliness dropped below... More

First time at the Badger Box and wow.Nothing like i was led to believe. Most people haven't got a good word for it. I was impressed as to the standard of everything. Staff and service was extremely good, the food was brilliant and well presented. Not 1 of the 10 meals ordered had to be sent back. They all arrived... More

Cheap, high quality food and reasonably priced drinks. We visit here a lot for birthdays and anniversaries and are always well catered for. However, on our last visit many of the staff walked straight by us when we asked for some empty glasses to be removed from the table (we'd already piled them at one end) and our food did... More

The badger box is part of the hungry horse group and even though it's part of a chain it's one of the better places of its kind you'll visit. Nothing fancy but great to drop in for lunch or tea, always consistent with portions and quality. Huge menu which covers most choices, staff on the ball and pleasant. Great choice... More
