Our family of five stayed here on our way to Wales and we booked the family room on the top floor. All aspects of the room were pleasing. The restaurant served delicious food for mom and dad while the teens enjoyed pizza in the large room upstairs. Can't wait to visit again!

We have been to this pub often, both for dinner & lunch and have never been disappointed. On this occasion we were as ever, very impressed with the whole visit. The service was slick, very friendly,...

We stayed for one night to visit the Christmas market in Oxford (which for anyone interested, the market is very small and the Bath Christmas market is far, far superior). The bar is very cosy and as it was Christmas time they had the lights on and decorations up. Staff were friendly enough but the girl who showed us to...

I had high expectations for a fantastic New Year full English breakfast, but I have to be totally blunt and say that I was very disappointed. At almost £10 per breakfast I presumed that the ingredients would be of a decent quality, but I think we would have got similar at a motorway service station. Attention to service was minimal,...

The pub is about 3 miles out of oxford in a small village. Rooms lovely but it is the restaurant which is first class. Quality great and a good size portion too. The village is small but has a second pub (the vine) which we found very welcoming. This is a lovely inn and made a great base for our...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Not only does the Bear and Ragged Staff serve fantastic food throughout the day, its conversion to a Country Inn is complete with the opening in December 2012 of the last five of nine rooms. The Bear is now in a position to offer a full suite of services to the discerning traveler whether on business or just looking for a home away from home for a few days.Our food ethos can be summed up very simply, local where possible, absolutely fresh, prepared in our own kitchen. The Bear's food offering can best be described as eclectic, mainly British food, prepared with loving care and attention in well equipped kitchens, beautifully presented and served by well trained floor staff. And all this with a wine list carefully selected for quality and value. ... more   less
