Welcome to The Plough, situated in the heart of Marsh Gibbon opposite St Mary's Church. The Plough is a historic inn whose main building dates back to 1470 and is owned by Ewelme Charitable Trust.
We welcome guests to our two bars and classic restaurant. Children are welcome and as well as a large beer garden with plenty of outside tables we have an excellent adventure playground. Our car park is extensive and free.
We carry a wide selection of drinks of both the alcoholic and soft variety including many from local breweries and our chef produces delicious food.
We can also cater for functions, meetings and events- please contact us to enquire about these. You can also book part or all of our rooms for events. We can design menus for your particular function provided you book at least a week in advance. (Also see Sample Event Menus and Room Hire page)
The Plough is a lively hub for the local village community.
The Plough hosts the Aunt Sally fixtures for Marsh Gibbon which is in the Bicester and District Aunt Sally League. We are a very enthusiastic and friendly team and it's not just good exercise it's also tremendous fun. Only played in summer but we can show you how the game works and you can practise on our pitch (provided other people are not too close to it) at any time. Contact Stella if you would like to join one of our teams for the next season. For details of the league and fixture dates please see http://www.bicesterauntsally.com/
