Formerly a gentlemen’s club, The Badger – Newcastle offers traditional British pub food in a cosy, country setting that dates back to the 1700s. The Badger houses stretching stone walls and oversized leather armchairs, whilst roaring log fires fill the snug dining area, along with a feature oak wall and quaint beer garden.
Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Badger 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 Badger ‘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 town’s iconic Pele Tower is a 15-minute drive from The Badger in Ponteland, whilst Newcastle city centre is also a 15-minute drive away.

Customer reviews for The Badger - Newcastle
((((* 21 December 2017 by Susan Devine from Newcastle
My friend and I visited The Badger on Friday 8th December and chose from the Christmas Fayre menu. My friend had turkey and said it was very nice. I chose the beef and was rather disappointed with that. I thought there was little beef and a bit fatty although it was tender. There was very little potato and I thought that was rather tasteless and the carrots were very hard. In all fairness it was what was described in the menu just too little of it. We noted that two meals on the next table were returned although I don’t know the reason for that. The creme brûlée and cookie which we both had for dessert was perfect. We both agreed that the meal overall was ok but would have been disappointed if it had been Christmas Day as we usually have Christmas Day with our families at a Vintage Inn.

The service was great, plenty time between starter and main. The food was brilliant.

Lovely atmosphere but food didn't meet the normal good standards. Roast beef was very tough and carrots were too hard.

Booking service excellent. Dining experience not so good although service was good. There were several flies around the table the whole time. One of the mains was dry and not up to usual Vintage standards.

the service was slow due to not enough staff, drinks ordered first came with the starters.
we had to catch a waitress to order coffees at end of meal.
one guest had very mediocre steak and was a bit of wastage on it too.

Really good service from staff who were very helpful. Food was generally OK but some of the vegetables were overlooked and a bit cold. Tasty puddings
