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.



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, ensuring we comply with Government guidelines. Just click here to see our Covid-19 procedure. As we obey the new 11pm curfew, we are unfortunately no longer able to serve past 10pm. To make sure we serve lots of the good stuff to all guests, we strongly encourage guests to talk to us about booking a table, either for dining, drinks or both, and encouraging earlier sittings, where possible. Guests are always welcome to take a nightcap, or bottle back to their room.

Guests are all also reminded that face coverings are mandatory when inside the pub, and not seated at your table. If you do not have a face mask, please let us know and we can offer you a disposable one.
