The restaurant is very relaxed and quiet in the middle of the festival. The waiters were very attentive and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the wine recommended to us by our server. Will definitely be returning soon.

We all had a wonderful time here for brunch. One of us is gluten free and they created a full cooked breakfast that suited his needs. Two of us had the Badger's Brunch which was fantastic value for money. Our server gave the place a great atmosphere and always looked after us.

Fantastic meal - my first time at this restaurant and i plan to return. The smoked salmon starter was sublime. I then had a delicious pie which was massive. The fruit and jelly comes with a posh mini version of an arctic roll for those that remember their 70s classic desserts! Great service and atmosphere. When i got home i realised i hadn't received my 25% special discount - should have checked I suppose but also as I was with a friend i may not have said anything anyway.... Good value overall though even without the discount.

Pretty bad. Never again. The service was abysmal. The food was poor and overpriced. I described my chicken and i pie as "flaccid". My friend didn't think there was any game in his game pie. The carrots that we ordered turned out to be very burned parsnips. I could go on ...

Had a lovely evening meal on Friday. However did ask for a corner table if possible and we were absolutely in the middle of the room so minus points for that. Service was excellent and food was good. Probably could have been a little more fish in the fish pie and less mashed potatoe but the mashed potatoe was delicious as was the cabbage and bacon side.. Toilets were really quirky and squeaky clean so plus points for that. Would definitely return as really enjoyed the vibe.

Overall a good first visit. Quality of the food was very good. Excellent soup and the cod and venison were very good. The portion of venison was very generous and it was beautifully cooked. Good choice of wines. Music and general noise were quite loud and tables were close together. Service was very friendly but I felt they struggled a bit on a busy Saturday evening. But I would go back for the venison - maybe a bit less mash.

Good food, good choice of beer and wine, good service and very reasonably priced. Had a nice meal and the only issue was half way through the meal they turned the air con on, we just happened to be sat in front of it, and it got so cold and draughty that my partner had to put her jacket on. Would go back but I'll be making sure I'm not sat in the same place.

Excellent grub, crispy goat's cheese and Badger' s burrito very yummy. In all a good lunch, the only spoiler was a large noisy table near us, which made conversation almost impossible. Not the restaurant's fault, but other people seem to have little idea how they impact on other folk around them. Will be back as I enjoy the food!

Great service and decor was worth the visit. However food let it down a lot. Went for the Sunday roast and it was a poor quality. Wouldn’t go back to eat but would go in for a drink.

We enjoyed breakfast as a treat for Father's Day. Good service and food was yummy. Good value for money. Ambience scored lower as there weren't many other diners but we had a good table and enjoyed our visit.

Love the decor, and you can hold a conversation easily. Not a huge menu but there is something for everyone, has a homemade feel to it. Service is usually pretty good. Definitely worth a visit.

We had three different main courses which were all nice. We then all had the upside down apple pie which was tremendous. Good selection of food, reasonably priced wine and good service. Nice central location for meeting up with friends travelling from different areas. Recommend.

Amazing food, the most delicious meal I've eaten for a long time (Cod, bubble & squeak cake, cabbage with bacon and brown shrimp butter) it was cooked perfectly and the taste was wonderful. The decor is modern, tasteful and comfortable with a wind in the willow twist. Each member of staff was friendly, knowledgable about the menu and attentive. I LOVED Badger & Co and would gladly recommend anybody it eat here. Thank you for a lovely evening and meal to remember

The service was very slow for lunch and the portions were small and relatively expensive. I like the decor and the location and I've had a good cocktail there in the evening, but I won't be recommending to anyone.
