Bear & Ragged Staff is housed in a Grade II listed building and serves traditional British cuisine with flair. The interior draws inspiration from the local history with old photographs and paintings, and guests can also enjoy a drink in the garden or patio.

Spanning from salads and juicy burgers to piping-hot, stuffed-full pies, the Bear & Ragged Staff menu is lovingly prepared by the talented resident chefs. Ingredients are sourced from across the British Isles, and meats and daily-fresh fish catches can be traced back directly to sustainable, trusted suppliers. Choose from dishes including Fishermans platter, or Cornish Orchard braised pork belly.

Bear & Ragged Staff pub also presents a renowned drinks list, featuring award-winning ales including Fuller’s most well-known brew, London Pride. Fine wines, premium spirits and soft drinks are also on offer.

Tucked away in the Test Valley, the Bear & Ragged Staff Romsey is a 4-minute drive from Dunbridge Rail Station.

    The Bear and Ragged staff is a lovely old pub with a great atmosphere - always popular with great, hard working staff. The menu is not as extensivve as it has been but all food is good with my favourite being the avocado, salmon and prawns plate - delicious!

    The seating arrangements are good, decor is restful, the building and history titbits are fascinating, and the staff always have a smile, despite being rushed off their feet!

    All in all, we love coming here and frequently bring friends.

    Very good spread of menu options - 10 out of 10 for the scampi and chips, which is very hard to do anything better than average on - great panseared salmon as a Friday Fish Special. Friendly and efficient table service. Was busy and the wait was on the edge of uncomfortable.

    Great service and food

  • (((** 2 March 2016 by Michael Bowyer from Kingsbridge

    The restaurant was full and staff very occupied, service was sometimes slow and frustrating attention to the tables needs to be considered, as well as prompt clearing away the plates when finished. The food was plentiful and nothing special for six people I came away with change under £100.00 which was a surprise so value for money can't be ignored. For a pub meal it was ok but nothing amazing that day.

    Made very welcome by cheerful staff. Beautiful log fire in a very cosy atmosphere. Food choice was excellent and arrived at the table in good time. Well presented and plentiful and at a very reasonable price.
