About Restaurant Glen Watson
Welcome to Badgers Mount Hotel, a charming boutique hotel with heartfelt personal service and a welcoming at-home atmosphere. We’re perfectly located to explore the surrounding Leicestershire countryside – discover picturesque rolling fields and gorgeous market towns. It’s all in our backyard and you’ll love it.
Our restaurant is everything a country dining experience should be – an inviting and laid-back atmosphere, a hearty selection of seasonal dishes cooked using the finest local ingredients and a wine cellar stocked full of everything from premium vintages to everyday crowd pleasers.
Excellent food and service
Whilst dining there was a disgruntled customer at a nearby table. This was dealt with as discreetly as possible by the staff and caused only a minor distraction to us.
Whilst my partner and I and I were enjoying our anniversary lunch at Glen Watson’s restaurant at Badgers Mount, Elmsthorpe, at an adjacent table were two females. They proceeded to order multiple starters, mains and vino. At every opportunity they complained about the food. The two table staff did their utmost to try and keep them happy. We then hear them discussing how to get free use of a spa facility by behaving the way they were doing at the restaurant. One of the females then rummages through her bag then claims shes broken a tooth on plastic found in her veg. Staff responded respectfully, politely and offered the entire meal and drinks for free. The other female then claimed the staff were behaving aggressively. Chef patron Glen spoke to them, reiterated there was no monies expected, then asked them to leave. The females then began shouting abuse, attempting to goad the chef. He remained passive with hands behind his back. Eventually the females left. The whole staff deserve10 out of 10 for their professional behaviour. In a matter of 20 minutes we witnessed the worst of human nature and the very best. We have dined many times at Glen Watson’s at Badgers Mount. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. Roll on our next visit.
This particular visit went very well. I have visited many, many times and been pleased with everything. However, on Tuesday 15 May, I came at lunchtime with two friends. After waiting for about 30 minutes for our dessert, we reminded a member of staff. The desserts arrived with no apology for the delay. There were 3 waiting staff serving 3 tables. Your waiting staff are extremely pleasant but we were disappointed on this occasion.
A most enjoyable meal. Only comment a bit of a wait for the desserts, but worth the wait.. Lovely place for a leisurely lunch time. Will return.
Bit noisy and no parking possible in the car park due to a wedding party so first impressions weren't great, but the food was very good as was the service so would definitely go back again.
Another wonderful meal my wife and I had on Friday. Her steak and my fish were delicious. Portions were just right. Friendly and efficient staff all made our visit great. Will be back.
Scones were warm & delicious!
Really nice comfortable venue, scenery and grounds from restaurant beautiful, service was very good. Very good lunch time menu with plenty of choice. Food cooked to a very high standard and very tasty. Very good value for money too. Thank you so much for making my Fathers 99th birthday lunch so relaxing and special. It's so nice to know we have such a high standard restaurant on our door step.
Food was very nice indeed. Lovely staff and great place to have a relaxed and unhurried meal with a friend and or loved one.
Food was amazing, could not fault the meal at all, value was incredible we had three courses for less than 15 pounds which was amazing. Perfect balance between great food and great atmosphere, the lemon tart was as good as some fine dining restaurants we've been to, but friendly staff and informal atmosphere. 10/10 for staff and chef.
The staff were friendly and very helpfull. It was a lovely evening celebrating 3 birthdays
Unfortunately there was a 3 piece band on the night we visited and we were seated alongside it !!! Whilst not too loud, it did intrude on our conversation, as we had a guest with us. That was the only negative point for us. Will return when band not there ! Roy & Elaine Sutton.
A Superb meal. Certain the best Sunday lunch in the area.
Had a lovely meal with my husband. Food was excellent loved the atmospher even had added bonus of background entertainment . The staff are lovely and very accommodating. Great value for money .

A good night was had by all
Badgers Mount is a little gem a lovely surprise, l was totally at ease and very comfortable. Looking forward to my next visit.
Myself and my Dad absolutely love coming to your restaurant. The quality of the food and the service is the best quality for miles around. I can't thank you enough for putting up with my strange dietary requests, and delivering delicious alternatives. The service delivered with an authentic smile is wonderful. Your success is well-deserved.
Enjoyed quality food prepared as liked
We took some relatives from the Cotswolds who commented that it was the best Sunday lunch they had eaten out in a very long time!
A wonderful day celebrating my husband's 60th birthday. A perfect venue with lovely food. We were looked after very well.
Lovely setting, food was really good quality. Service was very friendly and attentive.
Very good food lovely place great staff but it seems to be getting more expensive every visit which is a shame as we do enjoy our meals there but seriously looking for other places to dine.
