About Jacobs Plough
The dining room serves breakfast, lunch and dinner – rural British cuisine with fine wines and beer.
For a more laid back dining experience, have a seat in the bar, snug or on the terrace
Friendly staff, good wine. Roast was nice, but meat cut a tad too thick and roast potatoes were average - but on the whole it was very nice and veg was lovely. Good choice of desserts and coffees. Tip added to bill, but that's fine as staff were great. Would definitely book again.
This was the worst ‘special’ meal out for Mother’s Day. We were stuck in a corner, waited more than an hour for our main course which came WITH the whitebait we’d ordered as a ‘while we are waiting’ sharing snack. For our two young children, this was an utterly unacceptable wait. We weren’t offered free prosecco, we cleared our own table onto the empty table next to us, as we waited so long for it to be cleared. We had to go to the bar for drinks and to request a dessert menu. Again we waited for our puddings, and we had to go to the bar AGAIN to find out why they were so delayed. Extremely disappointing, especially given that we frequently saw groups of staff standing chatting. Not at all special for the special mummy we were taking out to lunch. When I attempted to complain, I was simply told my comments would be passed to the general manager. I wasn’t offered the opportunity to speak to the manager myself, or any recompense. We won’t be visiting again.
We went here for Mother's Day and the food was wonderful, the service was very good and I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
Great evening, we really enjoyed everything about our visit, thank you.
We were very surprised about the high amount of salt on the chips in the children's meal. Children's meal was also served boiling hot so naturally a hungry toddler just wants to eat it straight away, which meant we have to take food away from him until it was cooler. This was obviously not understood by a two year old.
Nice pub and good food.
Very disappointed and angry that my 2 year old was served his children’s meal on a scorching hot plate. The waitress couldn’t even touch it. The kitchen or waitress should have known better. Kindly the manager discounted our bill but at the end of the day had my child actually been burned it would have been another matter. I hope the kitchen has been spoken to so this doesn’t happen again. It certainly ruined my meal to see my child distressed if only temporarily. Our meals were only placed under the heat lamps while we were comforting him outside which meant they weren’t particularly hot when we got to eat them. By this time I didn’t really care but it would have been nicer if they were prepared again.
Good service. Excellent Sunday lunch.
Really great food but service was slow, and this impacted the overall experience.
Very nice sharing platters. We all liked the fact the restuarent is just off the pub so it feels very relaxed and informal. Thanks to staff for great service as always (third time we visited) and we’ll be back soon!!
We had a lovely time and definitely would recommend you and also saw your signs for Mothers Day so i have put the hint out to the family. It was my friends birthday when we came to your restaurant. The waitress was friendly and helpful when ordering and loved the food of course my friends love fish (i dont) and there was a great choice of fish and the specials they liked. Loved the olives and bread to share really nice like being in Greece Yum. I had the Rump steak which I have had 3 times now at different times in your restaurant which was very good. Also like all the Gin you have do you have Gin nights? I will definately like to attend one of those !! I will be in again soon i am sure. Thank you for your service and keep up the good work there are not many places in Bicester that have as my Mum would say "Proper bit of wholesome homecooked food on the menu" will hopefully be coming back soon. oh and love your courtyard look forward to sitting in there in the summer Thank you
Everything was exceptional from pre booking our meals to the surprise 50th birthday cake they allowed us to bring with. Best staff /best food /best atmosphere
Yet another fantastic meal, 2 rump steaks cooked perfectly, staff friendly as usual. We always look forward to drinking and eating and introducing our friends to JP. See you soon.
Amazing food and service as always Thank you
Amazing roast. Lamb was to die for. Really enjoyed ourselves and service was great
Great lunch with some business collueges, large party that the JP gave us a pre order for. Lovely atmosphere & team and in a great location. Thank you!
Lovely pub with a great atmosphere. The food was well cooked, well presented and very tasty. Only snag no craft beers on tap (or rather only cask ales) - a wider choice would have been good. Otherwise a very good meal.
Lovely Saturday lunch with 3 generations of our family, service was perfect, whole family enjoyed their food.
Had a very nice roast dinner. Good service and friendly staff.
This has played on my mind for the last 24 hours. We had a lovely meal despite the waitress slipping over and dropping it. It was a catastropic slip! Everything went everywhere and she was in tears. We felt really sorry for her and tried to put her at ease. We was disappointed that we didn't get any offer of recompense especially as we had a damaged handbag, crease splats on trousers, a glass of wine knocked into 1 meal (which was eaten regardless even if it did taste of wine) and the glass of wine not replaced. We paid £150 plus a £10 tip. Much more than I think it deserved. We didn't even get a free drink or dessert for the hassle. Its a shame because the pub was lovely.
The service was very slow considering we were only one of three small groups eating there. But the food was very tasty when we did get it
Another great meal! Delicious Sunday lunch
Really nice pub and good food. Enjoyable evening.
Great food and service
