The Old Badger Pub teamed up with Eastington coronavirus volunteers to launch a free community meals programme. The programme was a voluntary initiative offering free food for the over 70’s and vulnerable in Eastington and surrounding areas.
The managers, Mark and Heather Frazer and their two chefs Emily Pegler and Andrew Bingham, cooked up a storm twice a week utilising the pub kitchen. They have delivered over 2,000 meals since launching in April!
This service will be winding down, now, and the Badger is OPEN!
(all precautions in place)
A full menu is now in operation, both for eating in and as a take-away
Telephone number for bookings/orders is – 01453 822 892.

Additionally, the Co-op is now offering a ‘call and collect’ service to all customers. Just phone in with your order, pay over the phone, and collect when it is ready. Simples!
