Blue Scrumpy left this review about Jacobs Plough

With two of my target pubs along Sheep Street closed until later in the afternoon, Jacob's Plough was my next stop, just on the edge of the town centre.

A well appointed pub, it seems to focus on diners. But with four real ales on, it does not disregard the drinker. I was seated on a sofa next to the large open fireplace.

I'm not sure if the pub is still run by Greene King. Morland Old Speckled Hen was the solitary beer from them. Others were St Austell Tribute & Timothy Taylor Landlord. However, I opted for the North Cotswold House of Jacob, which was well kept.

I didn't/couldn't venture further than the cosy front bar. But service was decent here. So, don't ignore it on any crawl of Bicester.

Quinno _ left this review about Jacobs Plough

Unusual looking exterior that doesn't obviously appear to be like a pub at first glance and seems to be a bitsa of old buildings and extensions that have melded over the years into what we see today. Done out really nicely inside though – there’s a bar as you enter, a small lounge section to the left and a long narrow section to the right which opens out. Painted wood panelling on the left and exposed stone to the right, as well as lots of old tin signs, dried hops above the door and a welcome skylight above the bar. There’s also a lovely paved and flora heavy side garden. Five pumps with three on: GK OSH, Golden Hen and Timothy Taylor Landlord. The Landlord was OK but marred (as they are so often when guesting in GK pubs) by having a residual GK tint, so someone didn’t flush the lines prior to it going on. Also expensive at £4.20. Overall I quite liked it here and would pop in again. If the beer was top-notch, it’d be up there with Bicester’s best.

Komakino . left this review about The Plough Inn

Located at the northern end of Bicester's High Street, where the road becomes North Street, this has been removed from GK's clutches and is now owned by the team behind the Jacobs & Fields deli and Jacobs Chop House in Headington as well as Jacobs Inn in Wolvercote, so be-aproned young staff, laid-back indie muzak, artisanal food and rustic-cum-retro bric a bric dotted around. Some internal features remain such as an original open stone fireplace and semi-island bar, and dining is located to the right and beyond with a cosy bar area entered into from the main entrance. Ales comprised Old Speckled Hen, its golden counterpart Old Golden Hen, TT Landlord and the locAle XT 4 - a quaffable 3.8% session ale. Eminently better than what came before, although the ale selection was a little on the mundane side.
