    Excellent value for money

    We had never been to this restaurant before & I was very impressed with the food. It was delicious & presented lovely. We will definitely be back. Only very, very minor point. The cutlery being on the table in a cup,& you having to help yourself, just didn't match what I would have expected with the standard of food.

    Great food and great service

    With the 20% off food deal we enjoyed pies and sides and a bottle of wine to share for a very reasonable price and had a lovely time! The food was really nicely done and the waiter was very attentive.

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.
