We made a quick visit to this local restaurant. The service was good and we were given a nice seat near the log burner. I ordered a medium rare sirloin steak and it was served medium rare. It is surprising how few pubs actually manage to achieve this, so I was delighted with mine. There was a generous supply of... More

I need somewhere to lie down and think about what I've done. That was an excellent carvery and now I'm completely full of food. The gravy was superb. We only went for the standard carvery as opposed to the "mega carvery" - good luck with that one!

This pub was clean, busy and was well run on the night we visited. The menu is large, but not as large as the portions. Our meals were enormous, but good pub-quality food. Felt guilty about leaving so much of it, but it was just too much. I would have given it 5 stars but for two things 1. The... More

Popped in for a mid walk Sunday lunch. It's a busy local pub with a generally friendly atmosphere. I had the carvery - the meat was nicely cooked and the portion was good. There was a couple of nice sides (roast potatoes were lovely!) however a couple were less good (slightly over cooked veg although that may be my preference).... More

Spontaneous drop in for a late lunch on our way to St Ives. Very friendly greeting from the barman with attentive and friendly service throughout. We chose ham sandwich with a portion of chips with beef stew. Either portion would have served 2. The ham in the sandwich was of very good quality, the chips tasty and the stew full... More

After completing the 'Badger Walk' -starts from St. Ives beach through the woods and end in The Badger Inn- we sat for lunch. The food is a good example of pub grub and the staff is very friendly. If weather permits it the garden sitting is quite nice. Bonus: A huge Great Dane occupies one of the seats in the... More

This pub never fails to deliver - a fine pint of Korea and a crab lunch is well anticipated on our walk from St Ives and The Badger provides - plus the added bonus of excellent service with welcoming and friendly staff and the beautiful Elvis lolling about and snuffling at the occasional customer! (He is a Great Dane, honestly!).... More

Lovely meal in a relaxed setting, it was a busy Sunday early evening but the service was good and the food came out quickly and was very tasty and plentiful.
