The Whistling Badger is a quintessentially Welsh pub,  located in the quaint town of Llanidloes in the pituresqe backdrop of Powys. It’s easy access to us from the A470, We’re also in close proximity to Newtown and Llangurig. We regularly welcome guests from around the world. Our delicious Tapas, excellent Wines and fantastic Real Ales are well loved by customers. 

The Pub

The Badger has evolved from what was previously two local drinking dens, The Royal Head and the Kings.

Refurbished and re-opened in Nov 2017 with a new name, a new look and a new feel.  We feel that we have kept the historic undertones and added a contemporary twist…

The Surroundings

We are lucky to have one of the largest outdoor spaces behind the pub – in full sun all day – in town.  There is a private car park for residents and bikers can leave bikes/cycles safely to the rear or in our garage.

We are hoping that next year we can optimise the out door space for weddings, private hire parties and musical events. We have also had an outside bar built

A Popular Place

Llanidloes thrives on its community. We hope that we have embraced this ethos since opening.  We regularly hold charity events and fund-raisers. We organise Jazz nights, Cocktail Sale days,  Burger nights and  Curry nights which are all  promoted on our FB page –If you’d care to take a look.  Lately we have held a gin afternoon tea so the Girls could come in and sample some of our 22 new gins.
