If 5* surroundings are what you are looking for this is probably not the place for you, but if great food and a friendly relaxing atmosphere is your thing then The Ragged Trousers is a 'must not miss' establishment! My partner and I both enjoyed a fabulous chilli and fries, all made in house, for a really good price and... More

My daughters and I were having a great day until we went to the Ragged Trousers for lunch. However on trying to order food whilst seated outside, the barman was insistent he would have to take my bank card and keeping it on display for all to see, scan or just take! In case we disappeared without paying! We didn't... More

This was a great pub, excellent staff great beer and good fun. Nice beer garden too. Didn't eat here but stopped by a couple of times to wet the whistle, for which it's top class.

Rudest barman I have ever come across. Coke is too watery and they make wild assumptions about the use of soda in spritzers. If you want a good time to somewhere else. Ps he is the gingery beardy one

Great lunch snacks - baguettes, nachos, wedges etc, and coffee if you don't fancy a drink. Have heard Ivor Cutler being played in the loos - how cool is that?

Not a review kind of person but this is an exception. Bad attitude and bad drinks. Plus, what kind of a bar doesn't have ice?

Cracking little gem in the Pantiles! Cold pint, great atmosphere, just what you need after a long day in the office!! You can also sit outside when the weather is good... A good all-rounder!
