    Excellent

    We had a lovely meal. I treated my parents, and we were all extremely pleased with both the food and the service.

    Great venue, very relaxed

    Three of us visited midweek for an evening meal. I had heard a number of good things about the place and it certainly was a very nice evening with good food. The atmosphere is good and i do like the slightly quirky decoration. The food was nicely present and enjoyable. Service was good although did feel like we were left with our plates for a while at the end of the evening but by this time is was pretty busy with a party in so i think that was reasonable. certainly think i will be back as there was also a good drinks menu to be enjoyed.

Unique bar and kitchen in Edinburgh city centre

Badger & Co is on Castle Street in the former home of Kenneth Grahame, the author of Wind in the Willows. This history plays a prominent part in the decor. Think Toad Hall’s padded leather seats, chandeliers and wood panelled walls. There are deer heads wearing wigs and a picture of a well dressed badger riding a penny farthing. It’s how a 21st century hipster might imagine an Edwardian gentleman’s club. As well as a private dining room, there are several intriguing nooks and crannies
and a courtyard for al fresco drinks and dining.

Local and seasonal

From breakfast through lunch to dinner, the menus at Badger & Co are packed with ingredients which are sustainable, seasonal and locally sourced. It is hearty stuff: duck heart skewers with chimichurri or Finnan haddie pie with a herb mash crust. Lamb and chicken from the Borders make regular appearances as does whatever game is in season. There is always a selection of pies on offer along with grill section of steaks, chops and whole fish. The Sunday roast is always popular.
