The Bear & Ragged Staff is a glorious pub with ancient fireplaces, flagstone floors, one of the finest bars anywhere and 9 cosy bedrooms.
This pub is a world away from the Newbury and Swindon roads that stream past only a mile from their door. A comfortable eatery, conservatory and south facing terrace provide spaces for your every mood and sample menus showcasing their delicious seasonal food can be viewed below this text. Seasonality is at their core, always free range with dishes that they would be happy serving at home.
They have 9 bedrooms, 4 of which are located in the converted old cottages and a further 5 above the pub. 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.
Each room comes with a whole host of little luxuries including crisp, fresh linen, fluffy towels, tea and coffee making facilities, toiletries and excellent WiFi access. A delicious breakfast is included in your stay. Dogs are welcome in the pub, but not in their bedrooms.
If you are looking for a space to host a dinner party, family get together or birthday celebration,you can book their conservatory or a private space in the eatery. They are flexible for any occasion, so join them for a proper dinner party, full of quality ingredients and award winning cocktails.
