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 including 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 the tapas menu and selected numerous dishes including patatas bravas and vegetarian chilli-topped nachos along with a Tuscan bread salad. The courgette fries with chilli and mint yoghurt did not disappoint, and the seasame- and soy-marinated halloumi with kimchi slaw was a revelation. Delighted with our sharing plates, 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.
