Warmest congratulations on your upcoming wedding! We are honoured that you are considering The Ragged Cot as your wedding venue, and we can't wait to be a part of your special day. As a boutique country inn with a rich history, The Ragged Cot offers a picturesque setting for your wedding, whether in our sun-drenched gardens or by our cosy log fires.

Under new ownership since July 2022, The Ragged Cot has been transformed into a modern and welcoming space. We pride ourselves on our shabby chic interior and comfortable bedrooms, which create the perfect countryside atmosphere for your celebration.

As an independent venue, we offer a truly unique experience. We focus on using the freshest ingredients and providing friendly and efficient service. We believe in allowing you to create your dream wedding, so we offer price guides instead of package prices. This gives you the freedom to tailor your day to your specific wants and needs.

At The Ragged Cot, we have several stunning venues to choose from. The Snug, our most private venue with its own bar, is perfect for intimate weddings and parties of up to 35 guests (or 60+ in warm weather). The detailed beam roof adds a touch of romance to the space, and you can also decorate it with hanging floral and light decorations.

Our restaurant is our largest space and can accommodate up to 45 guests (or up to 60, including the bar area). With its tasteful modern design and traditional Cotswold features, the restaurant is a beautiful space for your wedding cake, guest book, or photo opportunities. The patio and garden can also be accessed through the restaurant, providing a lovely outdoor space for your guests to enjoy.

Speaking of the garden, our spacious outdoor area is the perfect spot for wedding photos. You can pose under our floral pergola or even hire a marquee for added protection from the elements. Plus, we offer the option for customisations, such as a hog roast or buffet set-up, to make your day even more special.

For your comfort, The Ragged Cot offers nine spacious and comfortable bedrooms with modern amenities. These rooms are designed with relaxation in mind, making them the perfect place for you and your bridal party to prepare for the big day. Our boutique-style rooms have received an AA 4* award, and we take great pride in providing our guests with a home away from home.

When it comes to dining, The Ragged Cot has been awarded an AA Rosette for our high-quality food and dining experience. Our in-house kitchen team creates menus with fresh and innovative dishes using only the best local and sustainable produce. We believe in supporting our community and the environment, so we use biodegradable cleaning chemicals and recycle most of our waste.

As a country pub, we take food and drink seriously, and we believe it's an essential part of any special occasion. That's why we offer a variety of options for your bar service, from a free-flowing open bar to an open tab with a price cap. Our team is dedicated to providing high-quality products that match our ethos and passion for local and sustainable products. The Snug also offers a private bar and staff team for your convenience.

We understand that choosing a wedding venue is a big decision, so we are here to help make your day as memorable and stress-free as possible. Our team at The Ragged Cot is always happy to provide a quote and assist you in planning your dream wedding. Thank you for considering us, and we hope to welcome you to The Ragged Cot soon.
