I took an elderly relative for lunch here and was pleasantly surprised by the helpful service. My relative suffers with dementia and eating out can be challenging. The member of staff that looked after us during the visit was fantastic! She allowed my relative to order from the children's menu as she has a small appetite and likes very simple... More

We've been coming here as a couple now for nearly a year, not as a regular thing, just when we feel that we want a rewarding date. Simply, we come here because we've never had a bad meal. Yes, the staff can be a little grumpy sometimes but so can I. Yes, you sometimes have to wait for the food... More

The Badger Sett is not too bad for a big organisation. Food is not brilliant and fairly small portions. Service is adequate but not what you could call friendly. Nice garden in summer.

The Badgers Sett never fails to deliver when it comes to Sunday lunch. We had a lovely meal. The only complaint was they we were too full to manage pudding.

Having had a very poor experience here a couple of years ago,I decided to give it another go and to be fair,it was abit better! Service was efficient and the waiting staff were very pleasant. We went at lunch time and a friend ordered the prawn and salmon baguette which arrived minus salmon. A couple who were sitting near us... More

Went here after a Bradgate Park visit and we were not disappointed. We had not booked but were quickly shown a table and drinks order taken whilst we perused the lunch menu, specials board and vegetarian specials as well. Spoilt for choice as 3 of us we veggies! We ordered some sharing bread for starters. When drinks arrived we ordered... More

5 pieces of scampi does not a main meal make! Waiting an hour between the starter and first course didn't make it any more worth the wait. Clearing our own table was another lowlight. On the upside, we have enjoyed good family meals here before.

We booked in at the restaurant to celebrate my birthday and it was the perfect place. I had a starter of prawn, lobster and avocado cocktail and then we both ordered the seared sea bass which was cooked to perfection. Duty manager Sophie and server Shannon were attentive and good-humoured throughout the evening which we concluded with desserts of ice... More

Last minuate decision for lunch. Turned up without reservation and was seated no problem. Sunday lunch was really nice, my partner had hunters chicken which seemed a much smaller portion compared to the sunday lunch. However both were tasty and fast service. Young waitress could have tried smiling however food and over all experience was really good. Highly recommend the... More
