Great place for a full meal, snack, party and trying various local beers. Food (poutine) too salty. Burgers and ribs fantastic. A mostly pub atmosphere and menu selection. Booths large and comfy. Service was courteous but a bit slow at times. However it was filling up with more patrons as the evening moved on.

A drink on the shady patio during the Music Festival, just perfect. Good selection of local beers as well as classic Brit offerings.

All the food is well prepared. The mushroom caps are always a great choice! Many beers on tap to choose from. The atmosphere is the best part of your experience.

We're in downtown Galt at the Cambridge live music festival and we happened to find the Black Badger British Pub as it is right across Water street from one of the stages for the music festival. This is a nice little place that has a good variety of food and beer as you might expect from a British pub. We... More

I have been there twice this month for their Monday night special "2 for 1 Wings". You get 2 pounds for the price of one, and they are large and meaty. My wife and I split one order, and with a side order of their excellent fries, it was more than enough to fill us up. I, for one, could... More

Have been twice now and both times was a business meeting. I had the burger and it was very good, a hand made patty and Cooked to perfection. Beer was cold and first rate.

We made 5 o'clock reservations for a Sat night for dinner before going to the theatre. We were seated promptly and got our meal. All our meals seemed second rate as compared to before. THEN before we even finished our meal along came an another waitress (older with blond spikey hair) and plunked down reserve signs for next serving. This... More
