    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.

    1st visit, we'll be back

    Our first visit to this relatively new restaurant. Interesting interior but relaxed atmosphere. There were 10 of us so most of the menu was ordered and everyone seemed to enjoy. Will be heading back in the spring.

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.
