Lacks a little spit and polish but still has great comfort and feels good. The service was excellent (Donna) and the food was as well. We liked the wide selection on the menu

This pub has sadly gone downhill over the years. When I last visited it was rather grubby inside, the food was below average quality, and service too.

Service has always been very good with friendly, laid back staff. Great beers on tap and delicious chicken wings. Patio is nice in the summer.

I was visiting from Scotland and took my family here cause I have been going for years when I visit Cambridge and the food was alway tasty for pub food, especially the burgers. They used to be made in the place or appeared that way with garlic through them. The burger is now obviously bought in and very bland and... More

Had lunch with a friend last week & they must have upgraded the menu as the food was fantastic....It also helps when you have great staff in Jaylene & Katherine :)

Great wings and great beers on tap with a traditional British pub feel...also a good sized patio for the warmer weather. Service has been very good every time. Cheers!

My husband and I stopped for a quick bite to eat and found this cozy little pub in the downtown core of cambridge. We had the steak and kidney pie and a few drinks , atmosphere was nice and prices were average. Nice little place for a drop in or to meet friends.

Would give 3 stars but the washrooms are too disgusting for use. I actually went to an outside location for #1 and came back to finish a now colder dinner. Ok to go for a beer with the boys. Food is ok but the place is really run down and needs a complete overhaul. Definately a TLC episode candidate. After... More

Went for lunch (2 couples) arriving about 12.15pm (weekday), the place was quiet. Nice English style pub restaurant/bar with quite a good atmosphere. Service was relatively fast and pleasant, but the food was variable. We both had "mushroom pot pie" which was ok, add two coffees and a bottle beer, total cost before tip, $38.??. Our friends had one "pot... More

We recently had dinner at the Badger while taking in the many artists at the Mill Race Folk Festival. The patio was quite busy but we found the last empty table. Our server was prompt and friendly with menus and drink orders. We were both very pleased with our meals. We will definitely return to the Black Badger in the... More
