Lovely decor, pleasant staff and a good choice of meals on offer. A bit slow on service.We had the burger from the bar menu and the loin of pork from the set lunch menu. The pork was lovely but would have liked some apple sauce (none made up) but the portion of dauphinnois was a bit mean.The burger was good... More

On the surface it looks great, clean, beautiful refurb, amazing wine list albeit on the expensive side, and interesting menu...... but I can't help but feel let down a little. £180.00 for two people includes 2 g&t's. 1 bottle of red, 2 starters and mains....one starter perfect - scallops, the other Avocado & tiger prawns average - the avocado being...

A very pleasant greeting by the staff and a very pleasant dining room. Well laid tables and clean menus suggested what was to come. The set lunch menu at £15 is tremendous value. Confit duck leg, superb, plaice well cooked, just marvellous. Attentive staff without being intrusive made for a really enjoyable experience. Will we return, yes definitely.

The pub is beautifully decorated in a very relaxed atmosphere and warm lighting and the staff very friendly and professional. My soup starter of spiced mixed vegetables was deliciously warming and full of flavour but the main dish of fish and mussels was very disappointing . The fish was overcooked and dry in a watery milk sauce and an abundance... More

As a local resident, I was really looking forward to visiting as many friends had recommended this establishment. We chose my husbands 40th birthday as the perfect occasion. The pub is beautiful and the staff were very welcoming. Unfortunately, once seated it all went a bit downhill. It took the waitress almost 20 minutes to take a drinks order from... More

This pub is stunning to look at , staff very friendly. We had a quick bite to eat from the Bar menu . Husband had the Mushroom tagliatelle and I had the Chicken Curry . Although the flavours were good , the presentation could have been better and the portion size of the tagliatelle was small . I suppose the... More

We came for a family celebration and had a lovely time. The staff were pleasant and friendly. There was a small problem with our main courses, but we were politely offered some olive breads etc to keep us going. The food was ok. The "poor" rating is for value for money because the food and drink is overpriced significantly for... 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!
