The beer was cold and fresh. The fish was hanging off the plate in its crispy golden brown jacket. The sausage roll was comforting with a bite of creamy bone marrow on the side. Generous portions. Friendly service. Playful interior.

Lovely spot for lunch, we were given a very nice table in the window and had very good service and tasty food. Lovely cosy and lively ambience but still felt relaxed and not too noisy for our own conversation. Lovely interior design. Great online booking system:)

Although the food was delicious, the portion sizes were just abysmal. I ordered the scallops as a starter which were £10 and I got one scallop! When I pointed out that the menu said scallops in the plural meaning more than one, it fell on deaf ears. Just not interested. Shame really as I would have gone back and recommended to my foodie group, but now won't be a return customer and I won't recommend.

We came to Badger & Co for my friends 40th Birthday, and they couldn’t have made it more special if they’d tried. We had a lovely table by the window, a glass of Prosecco on arrival and they made her dessert special by writing happy birthday on the plate. Truly wonderful service. The food and ambience was perfect too. I cannot highly recommend enough. I only wish we were locals to go back often. Thank you.

Drinks, service and ambiance good. Thought the food was overpriced for what it was...£10 for one scallop and £15 for a fish pie which had too many potatoes in it (and then mash served with it).

The Brunch was excellent value with 4 cocktails included however the food wasn’t great. The bacon roll was nice. The bagel needed toasted and more than a smear of cream cheese. We had to ask for butter and the black currant compote was a bit odd. The other night did thing was the fruit and yogurt which came in bowls for all 3 of us. When we asked for other bowls to share it out the waitress seemed surprised. The cocktails were great and value for money was very good.

Great afternoon. Got the brunch deal, excellent value. Food on the basic side but to be expected at such a great rate. Prosecco could have been colder but probably a matter of personal preference

The overall rating is really low because I emailed the restaurant directly to make a complaint and received nothing back at all. Won’t ever be going here again with that kind of service. Extremely poor to say the least

I went with my friend and my dog for Badgers Brunch. I have been a couple of times before - some of the staff remembered me which made me feel quite special, they also made a fuss of the dog which made us feel incredibly welcome. The food was tasty as ever and the drinks were fabulous. A great experience all round. Well done badger and co, keep up the great work!

Good food but from a generational perspective I fail to see the need for music in a good restaurant - unless it’s for the staff- who were courteous and efficient.

We visited Badger & Co for our wedding anniversary. On our booking we mentioned it was a special occasion and they didn’t disappoint. As soon as we sat down we were given 2 complimentary glasses of processo. Also the bottle of wine we wanted was not available so the manager said he would give us any other bottle for the same price. Imagine our delight when we got the bill and the bottle was also complimentary. The food was excellent. Fresh, imaginative food in a lovely setting. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Badger & Co for making our evening so special

Nice place and welcome. Unfortunately food was a huge disappointment. Fish and chips looked like a child’s portion. Burger overdone.
Plates looked empty and wholly underwhelming when they arrived and didn’t improve.
Shame as nice place.
