I had lunch at the Badger with my wife and some old friends. Excellent food, very friendly staff and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. I recommend this place to anyone for a meal or just drinks in the beer garden.

The Badger is great value, basic but everything you need for a base to explore. We booked through Late Rooms and although thankfully I got a receipt saying I'd paid, I didn't get a confirmation, when we got here, they had no record of our booking. The staff were great and luckily they had space but I'd recommend a phone... More

If you want a good base, close to main routes but quiet, then The Badger Inn at Lelant may suit you. The decor and rooms are showing signs of age, but at £80 for 2 B&B B mid season this seems reasonable. The hotel offers excellent pub food, competitively priced. There is ample parking, a good bus service I to... More

We went when there was local... More

We stayed for three nights and were impressed by the friendly atmosphere and the customer service. We were shown to our room which although was a bit on the small side, was well presented and a nice choice of soaps in the ensuite shower room. We enjoyed the meals we had there, the breakfasts certainly set us up for the... More

Lovely atmosphere, good customer service particularly the gentleman behind the bar. Really friendly and helpful. Had the steak sizzler which was nicely cooked, well flavoured and very enjoyable. Can recommend this place for a nice pub lunch or a reasonably priced dinner.

Went to the Badger twice this week. We were recommended it by our neighbours in the holiday camp down the road. First time there were plenty of staff and a really nice young chap -huge sideburns- greeted us, took us through to the garden and got our drinks while we looked at the menu. I had bangers and mash which... More
