    We stumbled upon this place and I am so glad that we did. The service was great, the food was yummy, and all of the Wind in the Willows nods were so cute and well done.

    Badger was close to the main tourist areas of old town Edinburgh, yet it felt like a local spot. The atmosphere was great and super cute. The comfort food was perfect after a long day walking around town. I had fried chicken, a famous steak, and a haggis pie with fries. So good! Plus, there is local beer on tap. I highly recommend it for a family casual night out.
    Badger & CoResponded on 4 July 2024
    Thank you for your kind words! We're delighted you enjoyed the atmosphere, comfort food, and local beer. Be sure to pop back if you're ever in Edinburgh again. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back soon! Team Badger x

    Great waitress seated us and soon took our order. Fish and chips were really good— crisp and tasty as they add boiled be. Mushy peas were also great as were the chips. We look forward to another meal here soon!

    I booked a table for Fathers day and we were all pleasantly surprised. The setting gave a warm and spacious feel, the use of different mood lighting as the evening went on was a really nice touch. The food was very enjoyable and there was a great choice for everyone and the cost was very reasonable, I would highly recommend.

    Excellent dining experience! Fish and chips were outstanding…so very light, but crispy. Steak and haggis pie was very well cooked and taste was perfect. When waitstaff noticed my coat around my shoulders, they asked if the air con was blowing on me and adjusted it since it was a cool evening. Cocktails were absolutely delicious and perfectly balanced. We were asked twice if we had any dietary restrictions, which we did not, but they were eager to make sure. Outside eating available during nice weather. Loved the theme and back story to the name of the restaurant!
    Badger & CoResponded on 20 June 2024
    Morning Kim, Thank you so much for your awesome review! We're thrilled you had a great dining experience with us. It’s fantastic to hear you enjoyed the fish and chips and the steak and haggis pie. We’re glad our team could make you more comfortable by adjusting the air conditioning, especially wi th Edinburgh's temperature changing hourly at the moment. We’ve also recently launched a new cocktail menu, so it’s great to know the drinks were a hit! We're glad you loved our story as much as we love sharing it. We can’t wait to have you back soon!
