Bucking Fastard left this review about The Badgers Arms

Previous reviews paint a very accurate picture of the micropub,the name is the nickname of the landlord and there are a lot of badger references around the interior.The upstairs bar and lounge seemed the most welcoming space ,and it is like going to visit someones flat,all very homely.There is a good selection of real ciders,local cheeses,various pickled items and plenty of gin besides 4 ales. Expect Locales but the selection on my trip was somewhat pedestrian with nothing over 4.6%.A decent Great Oakley Delapre Dark was the pick ,while the other brews on my trip from Langton,Phipps and Merrimen lacked excitement from these quite ordinary brewers although it was good to see a commitment to at least one dark ale.Fine for a pint,a pleasant place to visit but not quite in the Premiership of micropubs.

Komakino . left this review about The Badgers Arms

As described by JAQPTIO below, with a small area downstairs just off a hallway, the bar is located up a flight of stairs on the first floor. This was what estate agents would call "cosy" on a Friday early evening visit, with the bar half of the room standing room only - the one bar stool, two high tables and standard seating against the window all taken and the hubbub of an after-work crowd. Nobby's Celeia, Potbelly Black Sun, Potbelly Inner Daze and Phipps NBC Diamond Ale - £3.50, but reduced to £3.20 with Camra discount. The second half of the room is more loungey, with carpeted floor, tables and mixed seating, along with decor including badgers portraits and a wall-mounted stuffed specimen. Real cider and a selection of gins also available, along with various bar snacks including cheeses. I've yet to visit a bad micropub - this one won Northants Camra Summer Pub 2018 within its first year of business - and long may my streak continue.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Badgers Arms

New micro-pub, housed behind a domestic-looking front door. There is a room with a few tables to the side as you enter, but the compact bar and a small side room are located at first-floor level. Mix of furniture and relatively sparse decor, but the emphasis is beer and conversation anyway. No handpumps on the counter, with the real ales being dispensed by gravity from a cool room behind the servery. Interesting selection of five real ales in a variety of styles, from which I went for the local Phipps NBC Ratliffe stout (£3.50).
