Enjoyed a really good lunch here catching up with an old business colleague. Nice venue - good class of surroundings and clientele without being stuffy. Good value and the food was great.

Facing out onto the picturesque Cropston Reservoir, The Badgers Sett champions quality British fare in a charming pub setting. As well as a spacious garden for al fresco dining, the traditional and cosy interior of The Badgers Sett in Leicestershire harks back to times gone by.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Badgers Sett menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Badgers Sett ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Badgers Sett in Cropston sits right on the fringes of the village’s stunning reservoir, whilst the Cropston Cricket Club is just a 5-minute walk away.

    We have visited many Vintage Inns over the years and can say that The Badgers Sett is very welcoming with good service and food. My only criticism is that the main was a little slow in coming after the starter. We will definitely visit again.

    Slow - food took 2 hours to arrive, when it did arrive they missed off an order, giving it to another diner.

    Lovely Sunday lunch. Beautifully presented. Good quality fresh vegetables and good size portion. Excellent.

    Welcomed by a lovely lady Phillipa, seated and drinks order taken.
    Ordered food which took ages to come, 45 mins, (restaurant was not to busy !). I has to ask for progress on order it was that long.
    Food was OK but no but portion size varied vastly.
    Sea bass was superb with plenty of sides. On the other hand the Rump steak was over cooked, 8 chips and what can only be described as small onion fritter. Not to impressed.
    Sweet again took ages to arrive. Trifle was best ever, platter of sweets was good, whereas the apple pie was poor, with runny custard in a minute jug.

    Overall I would say, service good, food very average, restaurant ok. Drinks selection good.
    Gentle men's toilets was awash with wet floor, no very nice.

    I am afraid we had a disappointing meal. The roast platter was disappointing. The meat was shrivelled up and appeared as if it had been reheated after it was cooked. The edges were shrivelled up and burnt. We dine out at least once week throughout Leicestershire. Members of staff were very welcoming and the the service was good. However the quality of the food spoiled our experience. As mentioned in the Vintage inn survey I would happy to pay around 30 to 40 pound a head in a gastro pub as a long as the food is good.

    Excellent food overall though the Wagyu burger was a disappointment . Great service . The only downside was that the Sunday roasts were not available but we were dining at 7.30 so not surprised. The fact that it serves a good variety on the menu on a Sunday is a bonus.

    We took two friends who had not been To Badger Sett before and the setting impressed them .We go fairly frequently so we knew that there is a good menu .We all thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The service was very good the waiter attentive and good food that's all one can ask for..Our friends want to come again.
