Me and my family are locals and eat at the badger inn on many different occasions. On this particular evening I ordered the sizzling chicken meal which I have had on numerous occasions and asked whether I could have a little extra chicken as on previous occasions the meal had been overpowered with just veg.... Again this is how I... More

We've been to this pub a couple of times now, once for a Saturday lunch and most recently a Sunday carvery. ( it gets busy so it pays to book a table) The food has been excellent both times and a substantial plate full both times. Hot tasty food at a reasonable price, lovely pub atmosphere. There are theme food... More

We ate lunch at The Badger Inn after stumbling across at the end of our coastal walk from Carbis Bay. Based on first impressions, I really wasn't expecting much as the entrance looked rather drab and the interior quite dated, giving the impression of an 'old man's or yocal's pub. However, I was very pleasantly surprised as the menu offered... More

Whatever they say about the rooms that might require some improvement (bit of paint or refurbishing, not a whole make over), let me tell you I just had one of the best meals ever in the uk! And for a friday night in december I have to say the mixture between locals at the bar, family with kids playing the... More

The inn is in Lelant which is basically a suburb of St Ives and is situated very close to a bus stop - 10 minutes into St ives with a good service weekdays and a rotten service on Sundays. It is also not too far from a railway station (St Erth to St Ives) although you might be discouraged by... More

We stayed at the Badger in November and was completely overwhelmed by the friendliness and warmth of the Inn. Our room was lovely and cosy with a bathroom with a bath we could soak away the muscle pains from long walks. The evening carvery was magnificent with a choice of meats and the freshest of vegetables. Breakfast each morning was... More

My brother and I needed to stay in the west Cornwall area as a result of family business. We had had a very difficult day but arrived at the Badger at 4pm and felt immediately relaxed by our welcome. We were shown to our rooms, both of which were very good, clean, quiet with excellent bathrooms with a shower I... More
