Very nice pub garden. Good atmosphere nice and busy, food was reasonably priced and delicious. There is a big Great Dane dog who is friendly and this pub is ideal for dog lovers, in the garden and out. At busy times there was quite a wait for food.

We have visited this very popular inn several times, each time we have visited St Ives and we feel the food is delicious. We tried the car very which was cooked beautifully. The only negative comment was that we had to wait a while for our order to be taken when I have seen this place busier and the service... More

We drove past the Badger several times whilst staying in St Ives so decided to book a table on a Saturday evening no problem. On arriving we had a pleasant greeting and shown to our table with given only one menu and three of us in the party we shared and within two minutes three waiters came to take our... More

I can only apologise if the steak in question was overcooked but can do nothing to help that situation days after the event. As you ironically mention yourself, a comment whilst here would have solved a relatively simple problem very easily. I wholly accept that we don't get everything right all of the time especially when we are in the... More

On the Sunday we arrived in St Ives, we had pre-booked the Badger for dinner. It was great and the following Tuesday, being my birthday, we booked again with friends.The service was great and the food was fantastic. Highly recommended.

Service was excellent- the staff were very friendly and helpful :) the food came in good time and the facilities were all kept in good condition i.e. toilets, beer garden, conservatory. Good food as well, lots to choose off the menu- almost too much!

The menu reads very well, unfortunately it doesn't really translate to the plate. There was nothing wrong with the food but it was nothing special. The service was slow because the staff were rushed off their feet. It seems that they all double as waiting and bar staff, so if your waiter gets caught at the bar, tough, you just... More
