Visited The Badger Inn after our day out in St Ives. It looked lovely from the outside so we thought we'd pop in! Wish we didn't!!!!!! There was myself, my partner & our 2 yr old daughter. On entering the 'pub' it's very dark. Alot of 'locals' looked at us like we weren't supposed to be there! We walked towards... More

When we arrived it was quite busy but luckily we had booked a table. After we ordered we had to wait for half an hour for our food but the service was quite friendly. When we finally got our food it was good but not outstanding. I don't know if that was just a one off for us but we... More

My partner and I stayed here for a couple of nights on a roadtrip around Cornwall. Having been to St Ives a few times, this place is a bit further away so you'll need a car to get into town. The room was nice, and the breakfasts included were good (full English included). We also had the Carvery one night,... More

I was appalled at the quality and taste of such a simple dish - fish, chips and mushy peas. The worst that I've ever tasted. Quite disappointing really. Even a simple cornish pastie tastes better. If you just want something to fill a hole, then this is the place for you. I enjoy my food if it tastes good. In... More

When I phoned to enquire about making a booking the phone was answered promptly in. friendly manner. My husband and I enjoyed a delicious carvery. The food was cooked just right and was piping hot. The plate was also hot which isn't always the case with many restaurants! I had a breast of chicken. Although this had to be ordered... More

We found this pub by chance while out on a drive. Very warm and friendly welcome by the bar staff as we entered. Didn't spend any time inside (apart from ordering) as the weather was glorious, the beer garden was spotless and a nice Little sun trap. I had a fresh crab meat sandwich which was absolutely divine and my... More

Well priced, large food portions but the service was appalling. Asked for dessert menus, waited half an hour but the waitress never returned, not asked how things were or if we wanted any sauces so had to get our own, ordered drinks at the bar when once again the waitress disappeared for over half an hour, drinks never arrived.. I... More
