We have been coming to the Badger for a few years now, every time we come to Cornwall. We have had other meals from the menu which have always been good but we love the carvery. Cannot fault it and never disappoints. Nice friendly staff and lovely location. Parking can sometimes be abit awkward but a lovely pub and really... More

Not been for a much too long a time as it did have uninviting style a few years ago - but how things have changed! Staff very friendly and helpful. Lots of room indoors and out to eat and good menu choices. Tried the ploughman's - good salad, loads of cheese and plenty of crusty bread. There was a problem... More

Booked on-line late on a Sunday, so not too surprised that they were a bit unprepared - it being a pub with rooms, rather than a hotel. However, the room was cosy and clean, everything worked. The breakfasts were freshly cooked (ordered the night before) and the evening menu was locally sourced and well prepared. Real ales, free wifi and... More

I've been to the Badger three years running. Every time I find attentive staff, prompt service and great food in generous amounts. Look for the owners Great Dane, Elvis. He is a sweetheart. Haven't stayed overnight so can't comment on that. But no complaints about the pub at all.

I have been here before with family and really enjoyed the "Badger Burger" in particular, so decided to have it again. However, this time everything on my plate was overcooked and there was far too much thyme in the burger, giving it an overpowering medicinal taste. My mum had the same meal and also found it to be dry and... More

The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious, efficiently organised, well prepared and presented. We were allocated Room 6 which was very small and rather shabby. The bathroom taps were difficult to manage and the bath side wobbled each time the door opened. The windows rattled during the windy nights and the storage space was very... More

I was out with my wife daughter's and 5 month old son and I have to admit we had tried to get in at the watermill down the road but were too early. I'm glad we were. I hadn't realised the pub was there. What a great pub, a really welcoming welcome and a really great meal, ours and the... More

Now picture your ideal Cornish village pub..done that? Well the badger inn is just that. The food is really really good, it is really good value for money and worth every penny and very accommodating and helpful with young children. They have local ales as well to help wash the lovely food down. The atmosphere is as you would want... More

We called in to this pub on a sunny afternoon after searching for a pub with a beer garden that served food and allowed dogs. The food was exceptional and the pub was very friendly with lovely locals. Such a nice place, would highly recommend! The beer garden is very pretty and the man on the bar was very chatty... More
