Ate here a few nights ago the staff were friendly and the pub it's self is a very nice building unfortunately the food didn't match the rest of the experience. My partner had the lasagne which she described as ok but quite bland. I had a burger which was probably one of the worst I've ever had at a pub.... More

Staff very helpful, nice atmosphere. But unfortunately as with the Alice Lisle ow!!! another Fullers pub ?? I think that might tell you something. Its to pricey for me. So as with the Alices Lisle, it will not be happening again. I think this will tell you something. In the area of the pub we were sat in there were... More

Went with friends and ordered the liver, portions were good however liver was undercooked ,chewy and mostly inedible, a pity as everone else's meal was ok. Service was good a real shame.

We have eaten here many times and it is always friendly with great food. Having a drink in the beer garden is always a treat in summer too.

The pub had a lovely feel to it. We sat near the open log fire which we would highly recommend. Food was extremely tasty perhaps a bit too expensive. Had to wait a while for the food but I believe it was because it was freshly cooked. Will be returning. Pie of the day was good.

I have been to the Bear and Ragged on many occasions over the last five years. I was apprehensive when it changed ownership, but Jo and her staff have got what it takes, always friendly, professional, great service and a beautiful ambiance. The food is reasonably priced and the ribs!!!! Fantastic. Overall a great pub/restaurant.

Told this was a really good place to eat, but sadly we won't return in a hurry! We booked a table for 8 of us for Sunday lunch. We arrived in good time and were shown our table. Order was taken quickly and drinks arrived, but from there things deteriorated.......we waited nearly an hour for our food. All of us... More

Have not been there for many years but we decided to go there for Sunday lunch. Surroundings as imagined and friendly staff to welcome pour drinks and show us to our table. Went downhill from then. Food took over an hour to arrive, then seemingly only because man on the next table complained about the delay. My pie had soggy... More
