We have visited the Badger for lunch on many occasions when we've been staying in the St Ives area, We've always been pleased with the food that we have chosen and the drinks we have ordered too. Unfortunately the service is not always very good.

Frequented this pub every night of our one week holiday and really loved the atmosphere. The team were super friendly and it was like having a local away from home :-)
