We have visited here a few times over the last couple of months, each time for a Sunday lunch. The price is good for the good quality food served, would highly recommend. The only negative is that the restaurant seems to attract a lot of older diners.

I have been here on two separate occasions. Once with my partner and once as a group of four. Beautiful pub in a beautiful area. Very relaxed atmosphere. Food was reasonably priced and delicious. Will definitely go again

The Rag is situated in a rural area, just north of my hometown (Chasetown) and is a beautiful building. It is in a good location (visually), although I am not sure about how many customers they get with it being a little out the way. Me, my mum, her partner and his dad all went for Sunday lunch after booking... More

Have eaten at The Rag many times in the past. There's a two courses for two at £30.00 deal on week nights. This used to be 3 courses and a bottle of wine but is now 2 courses without the wine? Starters were very good, Salmon fishcake and Brie with Chilli jam...both fresh made and very nice. Had rump steak... More

I've been to other places for set menus and not been impressed. The menu presented to me had a wide verity of starters, mains and sweets. You could tell a lot of thought and effort had gone into making the menu, most of all the cooking of the food we had. Could not fault anything, and now they are making... More
