A visit to Petworth station brings one inevitably to Badgers, recommended for lunch by the reception staff at the station. The menu is sufficiently varied if tilted slightly towards fish. The staff were pleasant enough but slightly less than engaged. The fact that the place was pretty busy on a Monday lunchtime suggests some sort of reputation. A starter of charcuterie, olives and bread was very satisfying but rustic in presentation. Its red pepper houmous was not particularly pleasant. Main courses of sesame chicken and chicken and chorizo linguine in pesto sauce were good. My partner commented that his linguine had too little salt and too much oil. Seasonal fruit pavlova and ice cream were also good, especially the ice cream. The waitress was, however, vague about the fruits which would accompany the pavlova - I expect staff to know the menu better. The bill was reasonable so, overall, it was a worthwhile visit.
