We went with friends and enjoyed a lovely dinner in the courtyard under the stars. Have often seen this place when driving past and was so pleased to finally try it. The only comment is the decor around the bar is a bit tired looking,...More

We really enjoyed our stay here, the Juniper room was clean, large, homely and comfortable. Shower steam room was relaxing and a nice walk down to the river. The breakfast was very enjoyable. Only criticism is that some of the staff need to look less...More

The Dog and Badger reopened in July 2015 as a free house after an extensive refurbishment over 18 months. The original building has been restored to retain its charm and a new Oak framed space has been added to house the main bar and the new state-of-the art open kitchen with its wood-fired oven and charcoal grill. The 60 seat restaurant serves seasonal contemporary dishes all prepared with locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. The kitchen has its own large vegetable and herb garden at the back of Gillman's Cottage. Breakfast is served from 8am to midday with bar snacks and meals including many pub favourites available in the bar and snug areas from 11am through until 10pm. A beautiful terrace has been added for alfresco drinking and dining. The private dining suite accommodates up to 14 for business meetings or a private lunch or dinner and 30 for a less formal occasion. The adjacent Gillman's Cottage has 6 luxury bedrooms all with private bathrooms and air conditioning. We very much look forward to welcoming you to The Dog and Badger!
