Score from 12 reviews Superb
Just 5 miles from the city centre of Oxford, The Bear and Ragged Staff offers fantastic homemade food, free parking, and free Wi-Fi.
Score from 414 reviews Superb
With a riverside location and set in a Cotswold stone building, this 5 gold star inn serves local, seasonal produce in the restaurant.
Score from 626 reviews Fabulous
Charming, characterful property with a contemporary, fresh feel to the bedrooms. The complementary toiletries are natural, locally sourced and beautifully scented. The food is very good and the service friendly.
We didn't like being over-charged for drinks on our final bill. We strongly recommend that guests pay for drinks as they go.
Great accommodation, plus great food.
Despite discussing with management, lukewarm showers were all that was available, unacceptable for any hotel, but particularly at this price. Would only recommend if they guarantee hot water.
handy to walks, travelling the area
The location, the food and the atmosphere
The food, ambience and setting. We were placed in the stable block rooms 1 & 2 and the rooms were comfortable.
People playing music until early hours and causing a disturbance. When we told of disturbed night in the morning we were told by the staff that they thought the people above us in the Stable block might be noisy as they had attended the Wilderness festival! Why did the staff not mention there could be a problem and apologise that they could not move us? Very disappointing.
Excellent quiet country location, well positioned for exploring the Cotswolds. A bonus for our friends being the Swan used as a location in Downton Abbey. Burford only 2 miles away, Bampton, 6, Blenheim 14. Even the rain didn't stop play.
Room very comfortable with beautiful view. Breakfast in the conservatory was excellent with lovely view to the garden. Staff very helpful and friendly
Pub atmosphere in restaurant Food was very good too. Room good size with everything you could need. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed it very much.
Only complaint is the need of air conditioning or at least a ceiling fan as you need to close the Windows and drapes for privacy and security.
Would have preferred a shower.
very comfortable staff are great
Comfort , bed , bathrooms
Like it all
Nice location. Nice room.
Compared to others we have stayed in this trip about $20.00 over priced.
We wasn't made aware we needed to book well in advance for a table, and staff all seemed to busy to explain that, so had to go to neighbouring village for evening meal which meant having to drive, so maybe we should have stayed there !
Lovely location and excellent food. Exactly what my wife and I were looking for.
Having to go home!
If you like the British countryside then this hotel couldn't be better situated - surrounded by beautiful fields and quaint villages. Room was nice and clean, bathroom very decent and staff were helpful and polite. Breakfast was also pretty good. Overall it was a great place to stay and I would go there again.
The food was slightly disappointing although by no means bad. Because of it's remote location a car is a must (again not really a complaint as such just something to keep in mind if you're planning on going there).
The location is fantastic. The food was very good.
Although we enjoyed our stay it felt like The Swan needed soebody cracking the whip. Overall score was 85% but it so easily could have been a 95%.
Such a fantastic idyllic little place in the middle of the countryside. Exactly what we wanted for our get away (and friends wedding visit). Stayed 2 nights - the room was superb - tastefully kitted out and the bathroom gorgeous (free products supplied lovely too). Extremely quiet little retreat - we stayed at the converted barn over the road from the main inn which suited us as it had a little garden and was on the river. Staff were helpful, accommodating and polite (and also work very hard as they were always there!). We ate in the pub on the Friday night and the potted mackerel followed by bavette steak meal was to die for - totally delicious and wonderfully presented. Breakfast was plentiful and everything was served with a smile. Would highly recommend.
There is nothing to not like as far as we are concerned :o)
The location was lovely
The rooms didn't have anything special about them so the overall impression was underwhelming. Breakfast was not available until 8am, which is a little late for a business traveller. In hindsight this wasn't an appropriate choice of accommodation for me.
Superb cooked breakfast Friendly competent staff Free drink as our room wasn't quite ready Beautiful buildings with tranquil outlook Quality rooms Relaxed atmosphere We will return
The rag rug in the bedroom it harbours dirt and looks out of character with the clean lines of the room
Location and peace and quiet
Price of coffee in bar
Lovely quiet location, very friendly and helpful staff, good food and comfortable rooms.
TV and wifi reception intermittent (but we didn't really come to watch TV so not a big deal).
Very quaint inn down a long winding narrow lane. Staff were very friendly and the room we had The Old Forge Room was comfortable and clean. The setting was lovely with a stream across the road from the Inn an orchard at the back and chickens running freely in the garden.
I would have liked a little lounge area to sit and relax but the bar and the restaurant area were all in one so there was nowhere to sit quietly. I was also a bit disappointed with the breakfast. The buffet table of cereals, fruit and juices was very limited in choice. The full english breakfast rated no more than 5 out of 10. Quality of bacon sausages not great and even the eggs overcooked.
We liked the locality and village .
our bedroom was onthe small side with large bathroom space. Small"attic" window. TV in a very sill place! Would be nice to have a designated sittingroom area for those staying over night or two with friends instead of meeting round a table in the pub area..
