Fortunately we had a contribution from the Government. We enjoyed the food but we all found the menu quite limited. It was our first visit in the six years we have lived here, although our friends have been before. The service charge, although "discretionary" was added to the bill.

Food very good, service generally fine, if not a little slow and odd we couldn’t place our food order when we wanted, especially when after making a reservation? We didn’t mind though due to the current circumstances, food came out quick and was great. Only other issue was after reading the rules you have in place to remain at your table to wait for a member of staff to come to you, after finishing desserts and having the dishes taken away, we waited for someone to come back over to either ask if we wanted anything else or the bill. After waiting 20 minutes for anyone to come over I eventually ventured over to the bar to ask to pay the bill. To finish though, everyone was lovey and polite, food very good and the Mole itself still a lovely venue.

Wonderful food and service. We had a table tucked away in the shade in the beautiful garden and thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Service was excellent, despite being out of sight.

We had a delicious meal at the Mole Inn. The food here is astoundingly good, the staff are friendly, polite and professional. The social distancing guidelines were implemented effectively and without fuss - I would thoroughly recommend a visit. PS. The gardens are beautiful too!

It was the first time we broke our lockdown. We shall come again but please ask your staff to spray tables and chair arms. It wasn't done once last Wednesday in the garden and your blurb makes the point it's important to you
