We had mushrooms, soup, goats cheese and prawn cocktail to start, which were all delicious, then fish & chips, pumpkin risotto and roast pork for mains. My daughter was delighted to see an interesting vegetarian option on the menu and thoroughly enjoyed it, hubby thought the... More

We visited on a Wednesday 'Steak night' because it sounded good value. The 2 ribeye steaks were rare as requested, full of flavour and superbly tender. Better steaks than we have had at several renowned 'steakhouses' in Birmingham. This chef really knows how to cook. Home made breads and ice creams and deep fried squid also hit the spot. Can't...

Went for lunch, good menu autumn special and a la carte. We all had the autumn special menu, plenty of choice and we had 3 courses which was very good value for money. Staff very friendly and very good service. Food excellent but the pub was very quite. Would definitely go again.

We were very impressed with the choices on the lunch menu and enjoyed 3 courses each. The soup was gorgeous and served with lovely tasting olive bread. The jalfrezi curry was excellent... More

Staying in a soulless hotel nearby I was looking for a decent meal on a chilly Monday night. A click on Trip advisor pointed me in the direction of the bear and ragstaff. What a lovely surprise. I was greeted by a friendly landlord who offered me an array of menus as well as telling me all about the curry... More

This is our favourite place for Sunday lunch. Melt in the mouth beef, great veggie options. All home cooked and wonderful choice of puddings and cheese. Also lovely owners. You need to book. It is very popular .

A visit to The Bear & Ragged Staff and your sure to receive a warm welcome with a good selection of beers plus all the usual bets, lager, etc. Having visited several times before the welcome is no surprise, but the new Autumn menu is, it is packed with deliciously sounding exciting dishes. The service is attentive without being intrusive,... More

I decided to try the chefs curry, which was jalfrezi, and was advised it was a hot one, my wife ordered the chicken.breast. Both meals were excellent and very well presented. The jalfrezi was hot and spicy, and I was told there was yoghurt available if... More
