Sorry it's so late! Visited in December for a celebratory evening meal with friends. Having only been for Sunday lunch before (which is always outstanding) I was intrigued to know what the evening menu would be like, the answer 'simply delicious'.

Our party of four had a fantastic meal on Valentines Day evening. The service was friendly and the food was excellent. A good choice on the menu and a lovely setting. The best touch was a mini box of chocolates for the ladies. Would definitely recommend.

We have been going here for several years now, about once a month and usually a party of six for Sunday lunch and never a complaint from any of us. It is situated well in the country a couple of miles from Worcester but not difficult to find. The surroundings are pleasant and it has a small garden you can... More

A local Travel Group based in Worcestershire chose The Bear and Ragged Staff at Bransford as venue for their March Lunch event, and it proved to be just what was required. Our pre-ordered main courses were of high quality, the service lacked a bit of drive however, and a long delay between starters and main courses became a little trying.... More
