Welcome to Jacobs Inn
Jacobs Inn is situated in the beautiful parish of Wolvercote, on the edge of Port Meadow.
Fish from Brixham, game from the Cotswold's and specials that change twice a day – brilliant food at a big happy pub near Oxford. Our idea is all about having good people, a love of whole hearted robust British cooking, locally sourced meats(we haven't told the pigs in the back garden quite how local; yet!) and a welcoming space to enjoy our wears.
From the Oxford sausages at breakfast to the home-cured meats and the home-baked focaccia, this is the place for nose-to-tail dining – and our rabbit ballotine with wild mushroom salad and truffle oil was fabulous. It's an old Cotswolds inn in a suburb of Oxford on the footpath to Port Meadow, and if you just fancy a pint and a pot of chipolatas, you're still in for a treat: the ales change daily w and the chipolatas are from the garden (they keep pigs and hens). Inside all is airy, rustic, beautiful, with old tongue-and-groove walls and wide plank floors, books to read, chesterfields to recline on, and a fair few stuffed animals on the walls (very à la mode). Dogs doze by the fire, children tuck into baby burgers, and in summer you spill into the grounds, with picnic tables, deckchairs and great big terrace.
