Review on The Bear & Ragged Staff

After a long absence from the Oxford pub and restaurant scene, The Bear and Ragged Staff at Cumnor made a recent comeback with much noise and fanfare. Peering into the fuss leads to pleasant surprises like the wonderfully refurbished interiors that gives the place a rather swanky look, the 'hearty, country style cooking' and the warm welcome extended to all guests especially the little ones. Soaked in rich history, The Bear dates back to the sixteenth century when the property was owned by St. John's College under the reign of Henry VIII.

You can tell from the menu that the local fields and woods around the area rich in fauna such as pheasant, partridge, deer, muntjac, rabbit and pigeon, contribute richly to The Bear's kitchen. Games, casseroles, steaks and pub classics are always on the menu and cooked with local ingredients whenever possible. Try the char-grilled sirloin steaks, chicken Caesar salad and conclude with the chocolate fondant or rhubarb and ginger crumble.
