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.

    Went on a sunny warm Friday evening and it was heaving inside and out! Good job I'd booked! Lots of people moaning about the wait for food and drink, didn't bother us as we had a lot to catch up on. Food was well worth the wait, hot and delicious. The staff catered very well under the circumstances, hats off to them.

    Very disappointed poor service waited 30 minutes before given a menu then another 45 minutes for food. Seemed as though they couldn't cope and staff training required. We were also charged £2 for tap water. Food when it arrived was only warm

    The food was absolutely delicious, everyone enjoyed their meal, it was beautifully cooked and served. The staff was extremely polite and helpful and the services, considering how busy the restaurant was, was very good.

    Unfortunately the experience wasn't a good one! I have visited many times and had great food but on this occasion it was poor. We had to wait for an hour and half for the main which was cold.

    good food for adults and very pleasant staff. child menu not good. only peas offered as veg and the chunky chips are not really what children like to eat. french fries would be better.

  • (((** 15 January 2017 by Sarah Page from Leicester

    The fillet steak was exceptional but there were no where near enough chips. The duck salad was a complete rip off at £12.95 with just a few gem lettuce leaves and a small handful of duck that looked like croutons. It was starter size rather than a main course. If we were not getting 25%off it would have gone back. We had wanted to order roast chicken but at 7pm on a Saturday evening it had run out.
