“Strange to see how a good dinner and feasting reconciles everybody.”

Uttered Samuel Pepys at around the same time The Plough at 38 first began serving thirsty travellers and Oxford’s town & gowns folk in 1656.

Bring those you care about together this Christmas for a feast of deliciousness at one of Oxford’s oldest watering holes, The Plough at 38.
