As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, my mom, sister and I spent an afternoon in Cambridge on the weekend to do a little bit of shopping. After our shopping came to a conclusion, we were trying to figure out where to go for dinner. My sister did a quick Google search to see what restaurants were in the area, and one recommendation Google provided was a place called The Black Badger, so we decided to give it a try.
Located at 55 Water Street North, The Black Badger is a British pub, and an authentic one at that. As soon as we walked in we knew we were in a British pub, and the atmosphere is quite reflective of actual British pubs in England – I can say this because my family and I visited a few when we were in London.
It’s a small but quaint and cozy restaurant, and I got the vibe that it has its dedicated regulars. The people dining inside all seemed to know one another, and I felt very welcome from the moment we walked in.
Their menu is pretty versatile with a good variety of traditional British food. My mom and I split a baked brie platter with jam and nuts and followed that with a Caesar salad – hers with chicken and mine with shrimp. My sister opted for their house-made burger with French fries, and all of our food was delicious. The prices were quite reasonable, the staff friendly, and there are enough options on the menu to suit just about everyone’s palate.
If you’re ever in Cambridge or in the area, do yourself a favour and check out The Black Badger. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s been around for a while, and I imagine there is a fair bit of history behind it as well.
