weekend wellington

    How better to embrace Autumn than with a beautiful prime British Beef Fillet Wellington, Creamy Mash, Purple Sprouting Broccoli & Truffle Jus? Fillet from Award-winning butcher Aubrey Allen, this classic is paired perfectly with our wine of the month. Just the thing after a long walk, kicking the leaves about.

    Enjoyed Thursday to Saturday between 18th October to 17th November.

    Why not ask for a taste of our wine of the month? Our favourite Pinot Noir, Castel del Lupo Pinot Nero della Quercia, from the hills of Pavia in Northern Italy. We think you’ll like it!

      Christmas Day

      We believe everyone should have Christmas Day off to stuff themselves with turkey before gently nodding off in front of the fire. We’ll be back open on Boxing Day. Merry Christmas.

        Boxing Day

        Back open from noon serving the good stuff. Booking advised.

          NEW YEAR’S EVE

          Dress to impress and join us for dinner this New Year’s Eve. Enjoy four courses for £60pp, including fizz on arrival. Bring your dancing shoes, as once the lights go down, we’ll be getting the party started. There’ll be bacon sarnies come the end of the night, or if you’re just joining us in the bar, talk to us about just popping down for a drink.

            New Year’s Day

            Start 2019 at The Bear & Ragged Staff and enjoy our famous roasts and Bloody Marys. All day and into the evening. We’d hate you to miss out, book a table online or give us a call.

              Six Nations

              We’ll be showing all England Games in the bar, so get a group together and settle into a table and enjoy a chilled pint and bit from our bar menu.

                Valentine’s Day

                If there’s any date reserved to treat your special someone, it’s 14th February. Join us for dinner and enjoy a sumptuous sharing dish from our specials board. We’ve also got fantastic selection of fine wines and Champagnes that are guaranteed to win you extra brownie points.

                If a twosome isn’t your thing, we have plenty of larger tables that we won’t be sawing in half for the occasion, so gather a group and join us – we promise we won’t ask any questions.

                  Mother’s Day

                  We’ll be open as usual for breakfast, so why not change tradition this year and start off with a Buck’s Fizz Breakfast before heading out for the day? We serve up the favourites alongside new classics and always prioritise quality produce. We are serious about our roasts too, so settle in with the family and enjoy top-quality beef from Aubrey Allen, Jimmy Butler’s free-range pork or our delicious vegetarian roast with all the glorious trimmings. Our special Mother’s Day Best Menu will be served right through till 9pm. Always busy, be sure to book early.

                    Easter Weekend

                    Start the long weekend early with half price fizz on Thursday, and join us for a leisurely Bank Holiday lunch on Good Friday.

                    Easter Sunday is the time to bring the family to the pub for a scrumptious get together. We’ll be serving breakfast from 9.30am and our Sunday Best menu from midday.

                    Easter Monday brings you our full menu and of course a roast rollover to cure any hangover. We’ll have the bloody marys ready.
