Facilities at The Bear and Ragged Staff

Just 5 miles from the city centre of Oxford, the heart of the pub is a glorious Tudor beauty. Ancient fireplaces, flagstone floors and mullioned windows with carved lintels, make the bar one of the finest anywhere. A comfortable eatery, conservatory and South-facing terrace provide spaces for every mood – and winding stairs lead to cosy bedrooms with old oak doorways & beamed ceilings.

Parts of the building date back more than 450 years, and it still retains charming old features. Rooms have high, sloping ceilings, king-size beds, and a flat-screen TV.

Home truths

Due to the great age and Grade II* listing of the building for its historic significance, the rooms over the pub are quirky and delightful, but not terribly accessible to guests of less than full mobility. The Old Cottage rooms are also upstairs, but with wider and shorter steps up to them.

The restaurant is popular with non-residents so we would strongly suggest booking dining in advance.
