Visited the Badger Inn in October 2016. We passed the pub and went in hoping for a table and a drink. The welcome was warm and a table was found without any fuss although the place was very busy. Our son had the carvery which he enjoyed very much, my wife had the whitebait and I had one of the...

Stayed at the Badger Inn recently. The staff were warm and welcoming and the atmosphere most genial. Our room was modern and welcome after several nights in worn out b and b's. We ate dinner in the restaurant and our meals were delicious and filling. So much so we didn't need the full English breakfast in the morning. I would...

Visited for dinner on a Tuesday evening, staff very pleasant, we selected a lamb madras curry from the specials board and liver and mash from the main menu. The curry was more like a dry lamb stew and the mash potato was full of lumps. The liver was of poor quality with several pieces full of veins, my wife found...

Great service, friendly staff and a decent carvery. Three meats to choose from (shame there was no crackling left), 5 vegetables, roast potatoes, great Yorkshire puds and really tasty gravy. This isn't fine dining, but it's decent 'pub grub'. For a £9.95 carvery it's worth it.

Lost count how many times we have been here. Can't wait for our property to be completed in Carbis Bay next year so we can visit ++ as we so love walking Bertie the dog along the beach and up to the Badger and back. Had lunch here on Saturday and Sunday this weekend. Short of staff on Saturday and...

We were staying in Lelant and were delighted to find this pub just a few yards down the road. The bar manager and staff were very helpful and friendly and ended up eating there four times in one week. The portions are ample and the food is of a good standard. Even better is that the local beer, HSD, is...

Visited on a Tuesday evening with my husband during a recent holiday to St Ives. It was very busy when we arrived and we had not booked a table, but they managed to squeeze us in, and we were taken to a table in their conservatory area which had a nice atmosphere. We expected a long wait as it was...

Had a very enjoyable meal here- but be warned, the portions are massive! It was busy so we had to wait a while for a table, but we took that as a good sign. Friendly staff, sadly didn't get to see the pub dog though. All in all, a good way to end our holiday- will definitely return when next...
