The Beerhouse Act of 1830 abolished beer tax and allowed the opening of beerhouses which were restricted to selling beer. The Government's aim was to discourage working people from drinking gin. So popular was the new act that thousands of beer houses opened within months of its passing. One of these was The Plough which opened here in that year. Many later went on to become full public houses able to sell a much wider range of drinks. Whether this one did is not known. It closed as long ago as 1917 and is now a private house. When it was open it was for most of its life a Morrells (of Oxford) house, but from 1911 to its closure it was owned by Halls.
