Planned a trip to Oxford on our recent trip to England and discovered details of this very typical, quaint old country inn on the Internet. We were traveling by train, so we needed somewhere with easy access to Oxford. As on-line reviews of the Bear & Ragged Staff were good and fitted our needs perfectly, plus there were local bus...

Lots of old original features with a modern touch, real quality surroundings. We enjoyed evening meal in the restaurant which was first class, great service from a wonderful... More

We celebrated my parents-in-laws 40th wedding anniversary here. We had a fabulous time. All very welcoming, our rooms were lovely. We ate both Sunday lunchtime and dinner. The food was good. I wouldn't say mind-blowing but tasty. Lots of choice. We had lots of random requests (bringing our own wine, staying up late in the bar on Sunday night playing... More

My wife and I were truly amazed at the beauty quaintness of this inn. If you are looking to experience a country inn this is the place to go. While the room was charming the food was excellent. Additionally there are a couple of other pubs close by for variety. On the west side of Oxford it is an easy... More

My partner and I stayed here for an anniversary weekend and we really impressed with the food, the accommodation and the service. Faultless right from the friendly welcome at check-in, service at dinner (the food is excellent) and Audra at breakfast! Just the right balance of friendly and professional / helpful. We will defintely be back again.

Terrible service. Staff made it seem like it was their house that you were invading. Good food but very slow service. Rude staff at checkout. Refused Amex even though they can accept it and asked me to clean tables to cover the cost.

The food here is stunning. Our evening meal was sublime. Also, our full English in the morning was very good too. Service from staff was excellent and the room was lovely. We were lucky enough to have room 8 which was essentially a top floor flat. Lovely period features such as old beams, wooden doors and a winding staircase. The... More
