It's always a pleasure to visit Jacob's Inn. It's a unique gastropub with a great atmosphere and cute farm animals.

We sat in the garden and were treated to excellent service by very happy staff who were very attentive. Estrella lager was perfect - cold and nicely ‘hoppy’ tasting and food was good quality and well priced. A lovely pub garden lent itself to a very successful and happy lunch had by all.

Staff really welcoming to us and ensured all clients followed social distancing measures in place. Food and drink were exceptionally good and the ambiance in the pub relaxing. There was a large outside garden area which we didn't use but will definitely visit on our next trip to Oxford. We were surprised to find a service charge had been added to the bill but we always tip so it wasn't a problem to us but feel this should be made clear to customers.

The staff were all so friendly. I came here from London as part of my first ever trip to Oxford and the pub was amazing. I loved the food and the animals!

Love the atmosphere - really lovely with the animals and being dog friendly is great. Was just disappointed with food, as all of us who had poached eggs had no runny yolk and just a very hard boiled egg which wasn’t very nice. The rest of the food was yummy though so thank you, just a minor thing! In terms of service with Covid-19 it was uncomfortable that staff didn’t wear masks to serve food, which would have been fine if they hadn’t been speaking lots whilst passing food down and thus transferring their breath etc onto the food which at the moment is really unsafe and uncomfortable. Would still recommend though just please don’t speak whilst putting food onto the table at the moment and if you need to please wear a mask. Thank you!

Very positive experience, drinks on the expensive side but think that is just Oxfordshire. Food was tasty and generous portion sizes.

A great pub for food, drink, and social opportunities. I've been here pre-covid, I have been here post covid. I will continue to visit. Good range of space and seating available, an easy booking system and hand sanitiser use encouraged. This is usually a popular pub, especially in the sunshine, but I cannot comment on post covid on a less pleasant weather day, as I know that inside space is valuable.

Great atmosphere. Lovely garden, goats and chickens. Staff attentive and friendly. Food a little on the dear side, but a good choice on the menu and in light of trade being affected the past few months, understandable. Great choice of drinks. Seating outside both under cover and in the open.

We had a lovely dinner for two outside in the spacious garden. It had been wonderfully decorated with pot plants and shielded areas with well spaced tables. The food was fantastic!

Food was unattractive and very overpriced. Salad was appalling - soggy leaves, indifferent dressing & nasty, smelly fish paste (pâté or something similar?). Serving staff were doing their best (except that one was rather surly) but there were too few of them. Ordering by using the QR code is very tedious and I don't like to spend time entering all my details when have a guest. What if I did not have a smart phone? I have been patronising Jacob's Inn since it opened and spent very many thousands of pounds there. It is a convenient and attractive venue but under no circumstances would I dare to entertain business colleagues there. This has been the case for about three years. The venue has great potential but it is not being realised. Within limits, I do not mind how much I spend on food and drink, so long a it is of good quality, well-presented and well-served. It used to be like this but has deteriorated steadily over recent years and has now reached a very low point. Once other gastropubs in the area are up fully up and running, unless wanting just a drink I will be patronising them instead. Word evenutaly gets around and so, if the overall offereing is not improved then, once the COVID restrictions are more or less removed and winter comes, I would not be surprised if the business becomes unviable. All very sad and disappointing.
