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.

    Not very good. Rib of beef was very poorly cooked.

    Really enjoyed my meal, had chicken pie from the specials menu. My three friends also enjoyed their meals. Service was good without being over attentive

    Service and meals were excellent. Highly recommend the seafood risotto.

    First time we had been, and the dinner was really good. Just one thing though the dinner could have been a bit hotter, would go again.

    Having chosen this restaurant for the last four weeks, we were so disappointed to see the menu had changed and not for the better in our opinion. The table was not set we were never asked if we wanted a drink. The chicken wings we especially like we're not on the menu only on the shared platter and the Waitrose would not ask for us. So you have been crossed off our list.
