Pub with rooms | The Bear & Ragged Staff - Oxfordshire

Stay With Us


We have nine bedrooms – four in the converted Old Cottages (including one Twin) and five Ancient above the pub (including A Family Suite sleeping four, two Connecting Kings and two further Doubles). 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 perfect staycation

The Bear & Ragged Staff remains a pub rather than a hotel, so we don’t have a “Residents’ Lounge” or similar. What we have downstairs is a lively, classic English inn, where you are welcome to sit and watch the world go by or read the paper while village life goes on around you.

All of our rooms have really comfy beds, great linen, power showers and lovely toiletries, as well as mod cons like flat-screen TV with Freeview, free WiFi and tea and coffee-making equipment.  We removed all plastic bottles from our bathrooms earlier in the year, replacing them with a refillable and more eco-friendly aluminium bottle.

We love well-behaved dogs with several rooms available so your ‘other’ best friend can come with you. It’s just an extra cost of £10 including a rasher of bacon or sausage for breakfast. If you’re bringing your four legged friend, call us directly as we cannot take online bookings. Dogs are very welcome in the bar, as long as they are polite and kept on a lead. Let us know if your dog is thirsty, we are happy to keep them watered.

Our rates are always better when you book direct. Check our rooms and availability online, before calling us on 01869 220412 for 15% off. Just quote ‘Direct15’.

Relax, you can trust in us

We want you to feel as relaxed as possible in our pub. Safety has always been important to us, and now even more so than ever. There are several new ways we have adjusted to maintain both yours and our team’s health whilst you stay with us; from hand sanitiser around the pub, to spaced out tables and beautifully covered outside areas.

Guests are welcome to wear face coverings when inside the pub but this is your choice.

Our T’s & C’s can be seen here.
