Pub overview

The Plough, located in the centre of the busy commuter town of Bicester, offers a real opportunity to stand out from the crowd!

This recently refurbished pub has a great opportunity to establish itself as a high quality, well run community pub, offering something for everyone. This pub has all the key ingredients to succeed with an outdoor garden with pizza oven, three high specification letting rooms and ample car parking.

We are looking for a partner with a passion for cask ale and locally produced food to drive the business forward; growing trade by taking advantage of the passing footfall and tourists who visit the local Bicester Outlet Village.

The pub benefits from a separate dining area and large drinking space, together with 3 letting rooms and a great outside drinking area with a wood fired pizza oven.
