The Pub

The Dog & Badger is a delightful fourteenth century country inn in an even more delightful position beyond the brow of a wooded hill down which the road runs past the gates to Medmenham Abbey to Marlow and the Thames.

There are few facts about the Dog and Badger even the date of its origin is in doubt -
There is no shortage of legends surrounding the pub.. Nell Gwynn met certain of her admirers there; the Swan Uppers held great dinners here after the annual Swan Upping (a ceremonial census of the Royal Swans).
In the 1750's the noted Satanist James Dashwood would retire here with his abandoned cronies after holding meetings of The Hell Fire Club at Medmenham Abbey.

A final and more authentic detail - as late as 1899 the Medmenham Parish Clerk announced the banns of marriage in the Dog & Badger before in the Church.
