Old Badger Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The Old Badger Inn is a beautiful country village pub located just six miles outside of Stroud. The interior is traditionally furnished with wooden tables, hops and roaring fireplaces, while outside you’ll find a large family-friendly garden perfect for sunny al fresco dining. Both the pub and the garden are dog-friendly, so bring your four-legged friends along.
We were warmly welcomed by the team and shown to our table in the restaurant area, where we pondered the menu. As well as a main menu with options including many traditional favourites like beer-battered fish and chips and a choice of steaks the Old Badger also offers a popular tapas menu every Friday, which includes fish, vegetable, meat and mezze sharing boards. In addition to a very good wine selection there’s plenty of beer to choose from, including many CAMRA recommended real ales. We couldn’t resist sampling the hot cheese board comprising breaded Brie, baked Camembert and mozzarella sticks, warms bread and chutney. For main the barbecue ribs with homemade barbecue sauce, coleslaw and skin-on fries did not disappoint, and the piri piri chicken with charred gem lettuce and salsa was a revelation. Delighted with our meal, we both agreed to return to sample more dishes in the future.
If you’re looking to visit for a popular Sunday roast, booking one of the two sittings in advance is highly recommended.
