After having travelled almost two hours we really did expect more. We came for the set festive menu and we were sat (all 13 of us) tucked away near the kitchen on an 'L' shaped table that hindered conversation largely. On top of this we had no Christmas Crackers - which every other table had. On arrival some other members... More

It becomes increasingly difficult these days to find a restaurant that's easily accessable and caters for over 90 year old son. We take our aunt out frequently over the year and the badgers sett has hit all the right criteria for our purpose. It offers good wholesome cooked food. That is cooked fresh. Smaller portions for the smaller appetite. And... More

Booked at table online for 1pm on Bank Holiday Monday. Got there and was ignored for 5 minutes before managing to ask for our table. Was told that the online booking system was double booking & that we didn't have a table but that they would do their best to find one. A table was sorted but it was by... More

We went to pub for an evening meal and drink. Was not sure if they served food so I went in to have a look. Went to bar - nobody serving, waited, nobody appeared. Went to restaurant (people at tables) nobody appeared, went to kitchen door nobody around. Went back to bar, waited, nobody appeared. Repeated whole to/fro process again... More

Visited on a Thursday evening. Lovely setting, welcoming atmosphere and that's where the positive comments end. My partner and I ordered a bottle of red wine and after a few minutes were advised it wasn't available. Ordered a 2nd and again told unavailable due to a change of menu the following day. The 3rd bottle of red wine thankfully was... More

We are very sorry that your evening was not what we want our guests to experience at all- far from it! Us not having the wine is unfortunately something that cannot be helped, but perhaps you should have been told when you were sat. If you had let us know on the day, we would have been able to rectify... More
