I proposed to my now Fiancé yesterday. We hadn’t told anyone but the food & service was superb.
One of my fiancé’s friends had given the staff a call and told them our news and we got a glass of bubbles (mines was non alcoholic) and a dessert.
Would highly recommend Badger & Co to all my friends. High quality food!

The lunch menu choices were limited, although their quality was excellent. It might be good to have a menu choice such as £12 for 2 courses as many competitors offer. The pic poule wine was very good.

We had a lovely evening. The food and wine were excellent as was the service.
I had a surprise birthday cake brought to the table and a rendition of Happy Birthday to you from the staff.
It made a wonderful evening.
The bar and restaurant were lovely and the ambiance was perfect . We will visit again when we are in Edinburgh. Thank you.

Lovely setting, warm & cosy with glowing ambient lighting. Decent space between tables. The service , excellent, helpfully without being intrusive. Good choice from the menu and drinks list, quickly served. The food itself was very good, tasty. All in all a very pleasant experience.

I was disappointed that we were unable to order the brunch. It didn’t state anywhere that you had to request it in the notes in the booking.

Badger & co is well decorated but would like to see something different on children’s menu . Love the fact they have children’s activity books but shame they don’t have wind and willows theme anymore
Also would like to see a little more variety on menu
Staff are always friendly good atmosphere
Ladies toilets need to be cleaner and perhaps spruced up a little

Lovely restaurant for my daughters birthday. We shared the bread & butter and the braised beef sausage roll all delicious except we felt the smoked tomato ketchup overpowered the sausage roll. My husband and daughter had the steak cooked how they ordered it and very tender, the sides of mac'n'cheese and cauliflower cheese were good also. I had steak and onion pie which was supposed to have roasted root veg in but all I could see were carrots so that was a bit disappointing. The gravy wasn't thick enough but the flavour was good. The menu said it was served with a side of greens which to me are leafy veg such as spinach, kale, cabbage etc. but I was served green beans which I hate. Just a few small issues in what was overall a very good meal.

After spending a few days in Edinburgh, this was my favourite meal. It was booked for a birthday and when seated were both treated to a free glass of Prosecco. The staff were lovely and the food was absolutely incredible. Very delicious, beautifully presented and made from locally sourced, fresh produce. Would love to come back here!

The food was delicious, cocktails brilliant, staff lovely & the atmosphere cosy (minus a little argument at one of the other tables, but that can't be helped).
I've been here a couple of times & will definitely be back, it's one of my favourite places to eat in Edinburgh!

This was a Thursday night and it was not busy when we arrived at 6pm. It took 20 minutes for 2 bottles of wine to come. We then asked for food (meat and cheese platter) which also took roughly 30 minutes, when it did arrive the staff did not know it was suppose to come with bread. I had to ask for the bread included and the server replied oh I will check if it comes with it. The menu already states it does. When the bread eventually came it was cold and rock hard.
This is wear we usually book work drinks but I don't think we will return due to the delayed service.

Third time at badger and co for Sunday lunch. It’s a lovely restaurant - a great dining experience. The Sunday lunch was beautiful and the bonus was the sticky toffee pudding included in the price!! I will definitely return.
