Atmosphere and good pub grub are the hallmarks of a good pub and this one is excellent. Fish & chips or pasta are our favorites.

Good pub food! Great wings and fish and chips. Beers cold and they have a nice patio. More of a bar that a restaurant.

Stephanie is a most hospitable hostess and her attention to detail and sense of humour always makes for a fun and eventful visit. Kudos to Maryam, Tommy, Mgr. Donna and the entire staff at the Badger for always being so welcoming!

This pub has a dark English maybe forbidding feel, but don't be fooled. They have a great chef. Food is exceptional and everyone I bring there says the same. I can't believe I haven't given this pub the kudo's it deserves for their fabulous food. I have never been disappointed in the food and eat here on a regular basis.... More

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.
