Unusually quiet when we called. Long time since we have been here. Staff welcome and friendly. Food portions large but tasty. Comfortable place to stop and eat- it does get very busy as popular- deservedly so.

Lovely home cooked food, great atmosphere and fantastic service. Dog friendly which was a bonus, our boy enjoyed lots of fuss. Highly recommend, we will definitely return when visiting again in future. Thanks.

Impressed by the food and service when visiting for an early lunch in September. We had tuna cajun style and roast salmon. Also a good selection of beers. Would highly recommend a coastal walk from St Ives and a stop there for lunch.

We passed this restaurant by and tried the Waterwheel instead the previous evening as we were not sure about it. Our first instinct was right. We had two very nice Gin & Tonics but the Carvery was terrible. First we sat nursing our drinks for...More

Surprise birthday dinner thrown by friends and relatives. The Badgers staff were most accommodating and welcoming, especially considering we were a party of 11 with four children 8 and under. Everyone was very warm and most hospitable and the waitress who took our order was...More

Went here for a roast carvery and it was terrible. The meat was luke warm, fatty and very dry. The vegetables obviously were sat around for ages. The Yorkshire puddings were inedible burnt and frankly vile. Three different servers came up and asked us 3...More
