A St Austell House.

A large village pub with one large bar area which is divided up into three main areas one of which contains a pool table. Has a room set aside as a restaurant attached to the bar. Has a pleasant beer garden. Car park. The focus seems to be more on food than wet sales.

The interior is nothing special, has a small screen TV, (set to sport), above the bar.

Beers in good condition, no Proper Job at time of visit just Tribute and HSD. What is remarkable about the pub is the price of beer....£4 for a pint of Hicks....bit steep for a village pub.......but as Lelant is close to St Ives, price seems no object.

Have passed The Badger hundreds of times over the years, but only ventured in last Sunday evening. Not disappointed - beer on form and food good and plenty of it. Service a bit slow, but then this IS Cornwall and they had a couple of members of kitchen staff off sick. Will definitely revisit.

The place was busy when I was there on a Thursday evening recently (it was quiz night). The various St Austell ales I tried were okay. I ate in the restaurant and had the carvery meal. A very odd system of saying you'll have the carvery then waiting to be told it was okay to go up was in operation - curious as there was no queue and I was starving hungry. The cheese I had for second course was very good - served at room temperature so it could be tasted properly - but there was too much of it as if to justify the price tag (dear).
I enjoyed sitting in the garden afterwards.

Visited the Badger in may as we always do when in the area. regret to sya the once excellent carvery has gone downhill. Gramted there is a very good selection of vegetables but the meats are all rather tastelss. It was bit difficult to tell the difference between the beef and the lamb to be honest.

However the major thing is that they satill have not reinstated the HSD. It used to be available until three years ago but was taken off and the answer is 'no-one asks for it'. Oh I hate that excuse. Funny that. While we there another four people at least did!!

It is not like there is no room for it with at least three pumps used for Tribute.

Think St Austell brewery need to sort their pubs out so they give a full range of their beers.
