Ratcliffe on Soar is a village and civil parish in Nottinghamshire on the River Soar. It is part of the Rushcliffe District, and is the site of Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station. Nearby places are Kingston on Soar and Trentlock in Derbyshire. With a population of around 141 (2011 UK census), the parish is too small to have a parish council and so has a "parish meeting".

Ratcliffe on Soar was one of two parishes in this small and unusually-named rural district in the southwest corner of Nottinghamshire, England. It was established in 1894 and made up solely of the parishes of Kingston on Soar and Ratcliffe on Soar. Shardlow Rural District in over the county border in Derbyshire administered this area which was transferred to Leake Rural District in Nottinghamshire in 1927.
