I recently had the pleasure of being invited to Badger & Co for a meal. A short walk home, we opted for a leisurely Sunday lunch to check out the restaurant's offerings. Having walked past the establishment several times, I expected it to be a dark speakeasy style place. and not especially family friendly. I was pleasantly surprised.
As we'd both had a few rather full on weeks with no alcohol consumption, we opted for a cheeky lunchtime drink. I went for a cocktail and Ed went for a dark craft beer. My cocktail was lush! We didn't want starters ( as nice as they sounded) so instead opted for mains and dessert.
I ordered the Grilled Fillet of Sea Bass -it was nicely cooked and packed with flavour and accompanied by by favourite sea vegetable - samphire. The cauliflower couscous added an interesting dimension to the fish.
Ed opted for the Scottish Game Pie which looked humungous and hearty. He polished it in not time - apparently it wasn't as big as it looked!
Ed's dessert of choice was the Upside Down Apple Tart which he said was very good but probably not the most visually appealing!
I needed a chocolate fix and so went for the Chocolate and Orange Torte -it was delicious!
Besides the food, I loved the restaurant's decor - it really pulls off the speakeasy quirkiness but balances it with a bright airy feel. It is also very child friendly and downstairs bar area would be great for a sunny day beverage.
