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.

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.

Restaurant cold and breezy. Downstairs toilets absolutely freezing.
Service very slow - 40 minutes for food to be served and it wasn’t even busy.
Food ok but I was likely past it by the time it eventually arrived.
Really wish I’d gone to the establishments on St Andrew Square.

Great venue and food amazing - tasty starters and awesome beef dripping chips

Innovative menu with local ingredients

Lovely decor and setting

Good cocktails

Service was a touch slow at some points which has been an issue from other reviewers. But this didn’t detract too much from the overall experience!!

What a perfect little spot! We had a lovely view of the castle walking up to the restaurant and once inside it was lovely and cosy. Very Instagrammable! We had brunch for a friend's hen and they were so accommodating and lovely. Brilliant service and delicious cocktails. Would definitely go back!

Great place. Food was delicious, service was first-class. Great ambiance - apart from TV showing sports. Thankfully we were in the dining room but the screens are totally incongruous and detract massively from a really cool vibe.

Excellent lounge/restaurant which we’ve used on a number of previous occasions.
Nice lounge bar adjacent to restaurant.
Restaurant area is new and very comfortable.
Food, wine and service are excellent offering very good value.

The restaurant was very quiet and whilst our table was pleasantly situated at the window with comfortable chairs the meal was a bit of a let down. The lamb dish in particular was disappointing and having pointed this out we were offered a discount or complimentary teas and coffees. The staff were very pleasant but I would be reluctant to recommend it to anyone.

This was our first visit to Badger & Co. It was a bit busy (with it being a Saturday) and our table wasn't ready but we sat in the bar area with a drink until the table was available. There's a good choice of food and it's well presented. The staff were very friendly and attentive.

Atmosphere and service was very good, also good selection of drinks, however the food was not what I expected. Even though the quality was great, the portions were small, garnish/ accompliments very poor and for that I found that food prices were too high for what provided. Because of the very friendly and really accommodating staff as well as the variety of drinks I would definitely recommend for drinks and for a date.
