Welcome to The Badger Inn

The Badger Inn is a traditional 18th century Inn located in the picturesque village of Church Minshull, in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. The Badger’s cosy and characteristic ambiance makes for the perfect visit for every occasion. In the summertime there is a glorious hidden garden over looked by the tall, elegant and distinctive St Bartholomew’s Church or for the colder times, sit back and relax next to one of our real log fires.
