Had been there many, many years ago and was surprised to see how much it had been changed. It's a pity that such an old fashioned English pub had been transformed into a place all shiny and modern. However, I have to say that our snack, Welsh Rarebit, was as nice a meal as I could imagine. The staff were... More

My daughter, son-in-law and I enjoyed a very good dinner at this attractive pub/restaurant. The menu is extensive as is the ( not cheap) wine list. Service was quick and friendly. The food was well cooked and all in all, for this area, represented good value for the money.

The way the new owners have transformed this old english pub is amazing, the food is delicious, the bar is a lovely place to just come for a drink, but most of all what is so great about this place is the staff, they make it a great local, always happy and brighten...

The food was average nothing extraordinary. The staff were miserable, unhelpful, and appeared they all hated their job. No smiles, pleasantries. I arrived feeling happy looking forward to a nice meal and left feeling miserable thanks to the dreadful ambiance. A party of 6 came in and were dithering about seating arrangement while 2 members of staff stood next to... More

This is a lovely restaurant, with very pleasant staff. The menu was interesting, with sufficient choices. The timings between courses was well balanced and service attentive and unobtrusive. Nothing too much trouble. My husband didn't find anything he was too keen on so he had something cooked especially for him! It wasn't very busy the night we were there and... More

Simple bar food, interesting decor, good service. Popular pub and restaurant. Restaurant a bit dark for daytime eating. Outside seating, great in the summer.

Stayed at the Dog and Badger on the 4th February as a birthday treat for my boyfriend. We were not disappointed! We stayed in Honeysuckle room which was one of the nicest rooms I have stayed in. The jacuzzi bath and steam room were a brilliant touch! Cocktails in the bar served by lovely, friendly staff, a great dinner, more... More

Visited here with my partner one evening as I'd seen a trip advisor review that the restaurant caters well for vegans. It's rare to find an independent restaurant that has vegan options let alone a menu. I had a really tasty flatbread to start and a creamy coconut curry for main followed by passion fruit and dark cherry sorbets -... More

The Dog and Badger reopened in July 2015 as a free house after an extensive refurbishment over 18 months. The original building has been restored to retain its charm and a new Oak framed space has been added to house the main bar and the new state-of-the art open kitchen with its wood-fired oven and charcoal grill. The 60 seat restaurant serves seasonal contemporary dishes all prepared with locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. The kitchen has its own large vegetable and herb garden at the back of Gillman's Cottage. Breakfast is served from 8am to midday with bar snacks and meals including many pub favourites available in the bar and snug areas from 11am through until 10pm. A beautiful terrace has been added for alfresco drinking and dining. The private dining suite accommodates up to 14 for business meetings or a private lunch or dinner and 30 for a less formal occasion. The adjacent Gillman's Cottage has 6 luxury bedrooms all with private bathrooms and air conditioning. We very much look forward to welcoming you to The Dog and Badger!
