Targeted this pub for lunch on a circular walk from Charlbury. Very glad we did. A friendly publican is always most welcome as these days they stand out as the exception rather than the rule. 3 main beers so not a large selection, Ringwood's Razorback...More

An upmarket countryside pub, which provided us with a cheese plate to die for after our walk from Charlbury. It's chic and popular, so book if you're there at the weekend, we almost didn't get a spot!

We went here for lunch last Sunday as I had enjoyed the Posh Fish Finger Sandwich last time. The Landlord was still as cheerful and the sandwich was just as good! Highly recommended!!

The Plough Inn gets the right balance between being a lovely pub for locals and providing a great food and drink experience for visitors. A lovely well kept selection of local real ales that changes regularly and a wide selection of reasonably priced wines alongside...More

It is so hard to find a village pub that is consistent with their food & friendly atmosphere especially for an Oxfordshire pub! The Plough Inn at Finstock is just this. Guy and his chef son, Jordan, make this one of the most enjoyable visits...More
