We say…

Rural Britain is well-represented by the Badger’s Sett in Cropston. This traditional countryside pub and restaurant is in the most picturesque surroundings, and the seasonal, comforting food draws in customers from all over Leicestershire. The Badger’s Sett is near the beautiful Cropston Reservoir, a popular spot for walking, and the village can be easily reached by the central M1, then along the A50 or A46 to get to this charming countryside location.

The exterior of this pub is beautiful in summer or winter. Explore the fresh, vibrant beer garden, perfect for families and daytime socialising, in the summer months, and you can even dine al fresco if the weather allows. During the winter, the pub stands out as a warm haven amongst snow, rain or ice, especially when blanketed in white, creating a lovely picture-perfect image. The interior is filled with cosy fires, comfy seating, and traditional dark wooden furniture and chintzy decorations.

Start off your meal with a creamy baked Cornish brie and onion marmalade brulee with crusty bread, or try a tasty sharing platter with nibbles ranging from sticky BBQ ribs to Yorkshire puddings. Next, go for a tasty rib eye steak or a delicious wild boar and chorizo burger. All are served with golden, seasoned chips. You can also opt for the twist on an Ecceles cake: a savoury version with butternut squash and a creamy mushroom sauce. We also highly recommend the hearty, warming pie, either go for the slow-cooked beef and merlot pie, or a cheesy family favourite of fish pie with glazed seasonal vegetables. The lunch menu offers a big range of pub classics, too, so try the scampi medley with tartare sauce and peas, or go for the spiced aubergine wrap with a tasty mix of spinach and kidney beans. Don’t skip on dessert though, their British classics are famed throughout Leicestershire.

 

A country pub with plenty of charm, and a huge range of tasty food, the Badger’s Sett is somewhere that every Leicestershire food aficionado should have on their list for a great meal.
