Having been to the Bear & Ragged Staff many times before we were excited to celebrate a family birthday there on Friday night. An 8.30pm appointment meant it was busy, but not heaving so nice atmosphere. We were greeted by very polite staff and shown our table. Ten minutes later we were eventually asked if we would like a drink.... More

We stayed here because of a friend's wedding was being held in the area and seeing it was Valentine's we thought we would treat ourselves. We weren't let down. Breakfast was amazing with a brilliant selection to choose from. The only thing for me that stops this place from getting a 5 is that our meals in the evening although... More

My wife and I wanted to spend a few days in the Cotswolds and decided to go to Oxford. While looking for a place to stay, came across this hotel/inn. What a find. An excellent location, not far from the Oxford Park and Ride and only 4 miles from Oxford itself. The room we had was fabulous, the staff were... More

Second time in Bear and Ragged staff. This is a lovely old pub which has been tastefully modernised, very good beers and a very good restaurant. I stayed in room 7 which is a very nice large room tastefully renovated.

We stayed for 1 night at this lovely hotel. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in Room 5. The room was spacious with beautiful decor. The bathroom was large with nice fittings. We ate in the restaurant, the service was excellent as was the food. Breakfast was very nice and again the staff and service was good.

Thoroughly enjoyed staying there. We had room 5 which was fantastic and had dinner and breakfast both of which were very good. Great wine selection and very pleasant staff. I would definitely recommend. The room is the old pub landlords quarters so has its own entry behind the bar and the bed is very comfortable. Nice little touches like proper... More

Stayed here last weekend for one night and just loved it. We wanted a short break from London and it couldn't have been a more perfect choice. Situated in a beautiful village surrounded by thatched cottages, a duck pond and a choice of local walks, yet only a few miles from Oxford. We drove to the nearby park and ride... More
