Bear and Ragged Staff, Oxford
This Bear Was "Just Right"!
The Bear and Ragged Staff was the perfect place to stay for the last 2 nights of our 3 week visit to the U.K. Well located on the outskirts of Oxford, we were able to leave our car at the inn and catch a bus for the short ride to town, which was buzzing with students and tourists (like us). Our room was in a stone annex that adjoined the restaurant and pub and was nicely appointed with a large bathroom, comfortable bed and lovely cotton sheets. The staff was friendly and helpful and the same good food was available in both restaurant and pub, whichever venue strikes your fancy. After a long day of exploring Oxford and anticipating an even longer day of travel back to the US, it was nice to be able to walk a few yards from our room to the restaurant for our final English meal. Try the steak and ale pie and treat yourself to some of the local ice cream for dessert.

Best hotel in Oxford!
Everything was perfect - the gorgeous room, the stunning bathroom, the views, the historic features - then the best meal we've eaten in ages. Best of all were the staff and the manager Owain - so friendly and welcoming. We'd recommend this hotel to anyone hoping for real hospitality!

Nice pub outside just outside Oxford
Nice little pub. Food was nice not great but the breakfast was lovely. Rooms nice and clean although the floor around the loo could do with some bleach action and mouldy mastic around the Bath. Those would be my only complaints.
