    Authentic and cozy English Inn

    This cute little inn was such a great find. Staying here felt like an authentic English experience. Our room was clean and comfy, the staff were all helpful and friendly, and the food and drinks were unique and delicious. The only inconvenient thing is that it is about a 20 minute bus ride to get to the Oxford city center, but we didn't mind it. I only wish is that I can come back to the Bear and Ragged Staff during the holidays, as I imagine it would be magical.

    Loved the family room we stayed in. Loved the twin bed in the alcove. Liked the mix of old and modern as well. In addition to to the room itself the staff was great as was the restaurant. If I’m ever back in Oxford I’d stay here again.

    Will Morris and staff were friendly, accommodating and generally delightful. The atmosphere was quintessential English pub/tavern charm with all the unique quirky characteristics you’d hope to find. Cannot recommend this place enough. Ask for room 9!

  • 6.0.Good

    The building is quaint, but the room is separate from the building photo. The room was a little noisy from an outdoor fan, and at 3 AM the TV started flashing on its own and that woke us up. The breakfast was good in the restaurant. Good variety.

    Food was excellent, staff was terrific — very friendly and accommodating, public rooms very inviting and convivial, with lots of local trade. Room was pretty basic, but comfortable, with the usual amenities. Parking was a plus.

    This is an excellent place to stay while visiting Oxford. The staff was super accommodating and friendly. Our room above the pub was large and nicely appointed.

    Love, love, love this place! We will definitely return. We stayed here along with our three kids ages 16, 18, and 22. We had 1 regular room and the family room. They all thought this was an awesome place too. The rooms and bathrooms are updated and clean, yet the building is old with so much character. The atmosphere is friendly and food is top notch. Worth every single penny!

    Warm welcome

    Located well outside the city of Oxford. The room was “older” and could have used some updating rather than patching here and there. Service in the dining areas was good and food was good
