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

I went to see the Gabe Lee Three play and of course the DANCE FLOOR WAS PACKED ....why wouldn't it be ?? However - the dance floor is in the middle of the bar and mixed with a couple of drinks can make the walking and dancing a little difficult. Now add carpet - ugggh --- suggest the patio..... Great...

Staff was rude and kept moving us from our table to set up for the band. We were in the middle of dinner and the waitress came to move us for reserved band watchers. When we refused to move until our meal was done the manager came over and asked us again to relocate. Restrooms were horrid and when we... More
