The Old Badger Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Featuring prominently in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, The Old Badger Inn is an award-winning village pub just a five-minute hop from the M5. With a great menu, attractive patio garden and vibrant atmosphere, there is something for everyone.
The selection of exciting and varied dishes impressed from the start. Thanks to an offering of traditional pub classics alongside first-class specials and an outstanding tapas menu, we were spoilt for choice, and found ourselves planning our next visit before we had even left.
The confit duck Niçoise tempted me, and the combination of full-bodied textures and flavours from the duck and anchovy combined with Dijon mustard dressing easily surpassed my expectation. My partner dived into the extensive tapas menu. Succulent tempura king prawns, fiery chilli and lime crayfish, pork and lemon polpettine, patatas bravas and spicy cajun chicken were just a few of the exciting dishes on offer.
For dessert, our choice of caramelised pineapple steak paired with caramel ice cream and popcorn was inspired, and the subtle elderflower, gin and tonic jelly with raspberry, mint and cucumber was an equally welcome surprise. The team takes great pride in the six real ales, vast collection of gin, beer and wine available. It’s no wonder this pub is such a hit.
