This is now an Italian restaurant called Canaletto. Ale is still served. But the place was closed on Bank Holiday Monday. So it's a 0/10 from me.

My friend held her wedding reception here, summer of 2011, the Plough and Anchor attended her every need in the set up of the tables, guest book to be laid on a certain table, welcoming drinks to be ready by a certain time, etc etc, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience! and have visited several times since.......they now open for breakfast which is handy on our travels to Bicester village.
Love the `themed` nights, steak (tuesday) is my favourite whilst hubby likes burger night (thursday), at a discounted rate to the usual menu this is a must!
Oh and we have even taken our dog in the bar with us, after our walkies, a good excuse for a wee dram, made us feel very welcome and the dogs tail spoke volumes too, a very good all round pub, well done.

More restaurant than pub, which is a shame as it's (nearly) our local, and would go there more often if it were a bit more "pubby". Owners and staff are all friendly and interested in comments, some of the younger waitresses could do with a little more training, feels like they are working to much to a script at times . Beers are well kept and choice of wine good too. The restaurant area is good but could do with some screens to cut down on the noise: with the hard floor it feels a bit like a works canteen when it's busy. Food is very good however, imaginative, unpretentious and not all "pub grub" . We've always eaten well at the P&A.

A very welcoming pub that likes to focus on the quality of its food!
3 cask ales available, friendly staff, and clean with plenty of parking.
Well worth a visit for lunch.

Great pub with new owners and chef. They have put the bar back in so you can go for a drink in front of a real log fire if that's alll you want to do. BUT the food is fantastic. I've eaten there a couple of times since it reopened last November and it is top notch - especially the homemade pies and the puds are to die for (go for the choclate brownie with peanut butter ice cream)!

I always wonder at people who deliberately choose a Pub for the purposes of culinary entertainment. This place WAS a pub, but it's at least a decade since any serious drinker used it.

Food OK but service nothing short of appalling. Very slow in all areas, and when we commented that we were disappointed that one of our meals didn't match the description on the menu, the response from the owner/manager was argumentative and arrogant. There are far better restaurants in the area for less money.

Took my Wife here on a recommendation from a friend.

The food was really very good indeed - the Chef is a bit of a genius.

Just remember to take your chequebook and pen, as prices certainly reflect the quality.

And don't even think about asking for tomato sauce.

Also, this place seems purely a Gastropub, I imagine you would feel a bit in the way if you called in just for a pint.

Some time since we have been here and what a change! Now there is another bigger log fire in the new dining room. The food was even better than we remembered (new chef) and a bit more expensive but the quality is worth it. Even less of a pub as the emphasis is on food. They now run a dining club even! Service friendly/helpful. Will be on our list of favourites.

The food was excellent, and the atmosphere cosy, with perhaps the largest logs I've ever seen on a fire (we're talking tree trunks!). However at 12 the Sunday roast was on the expensive side, and there could have been more veg. London Pride was nice, while Tribute was on as a guest. Definately worth dropping in.
