Service always great. Lovely ambiance. Went twice. First night everything was perfect. Perfect lamb, chicken pie, desserts. Second night food was good but tasted like it had been under a heat lamp too long. We would be happy to try again and how it goes. Undoubtedly back to perfect.

Food was average, i unfortunately ordered sirloin steak ,but could not eat it as it was to tough, the waitress was apologetic and discontinued my bill by 25% , on the steak not on the overall bill .

We where given a glass of sparking wine as this was a anniversary meal.

Absolutely loved dining at the Badger.
Only one complaint. On finishing our dessert, there was a massive long black hair on tha plate. We pointed it out to our lovely waitress. We weren't charged for the dessert..but very disappointing.

I really like the food, the settings and the service at Badger & Co. This time I was bit disappointed with the food, I ordered the NORTH SEA HAKE & LANGO. The samphire was quite woody and I was missing cutlery to finish the lango properly. It was flavoursome and the fish was perfectly cooked.

Sort of OK. But not great at the detail. Some cooking (venison) excellent, some (scallops, sausage roll) not so good.

Great Service and we were really taken care of nothing was to much trouble.
The food for all three of us was excellent and for me personally, I’d didn’t want the meal to end I enjoyed it that much.

Can’t recommend Badger and Co Highly Enough, you wont be disappointed.

We were seated at the worst two top in the restaurant, even though other tables were available, and were still open when we finally left. We ordered a very nice Rioja Reserve, but discovered after opening the bottle it was a much inferior Spanish wine. Since we were on the path to and from the kitchen, servers had to pass us constantly. We waited what I consider a terribly long time after our main had been eaten for our server, any server. None ver approached our table. Finally, in disgust, we got up went to the bar, asked for the bill, paid, and left. We clearly told the bartender, who was also the sommelier that brought the wrong bottle of our dissatisfaction. I got the idea that since we were not locals, customer service was never a consideration.

Lovely venue for a Sunday roast with a view of the castle! Went here straight after the fringe and it was perfect to get a bit of rest. Great value roast with dessert included.

Excellent setting with a good vibe. The brunch is amazing value. Felt like we had to keep trying to get eye contact with the waitresses. Bill was wrong at the end, but immediately resolved. Brownies missing from the platter, but sorted quickly. will def be back :)

Normally yes, have been a few times, I had booked online which does not give the option of the brunch bundle so when we arrived we then got told that it had to be pre ordered and that they didn’t have enough stock. There were only 4 other tables in at this point. We choose off the menu and order a second drink just before our food arrived by the time our food came
And we had eaten still didn’t have our drinks.

Good food , well presented at reasonable prices. Staff helpful and friendly but very busy so not as attentive as they could have been. That didn't detract from a very pleasant meal.

A little gem with a great kitchen team (the food was fantastic and portions were copious), smiley dynamic staff and a warm and cosy atmosphere. We returned the next morning for an amazing breakfast. Don’t change a thing!
