Lovely setting; relaxed service. I think they've upped their game food wise. The lunch menu is limited but all good. The puddings were excellent. I can recommend the courgette flower stuffed with ricotta and pine nuts, on a bed of caponata; the chocolate creme brûlée; and the fruit pavlova.

The meal and experience was altogether excellent. The service was efficient and friendly. We had one observation on our way out though, nobody mentioned a specials board so we did not have an opportunity to see if we would have preferred those options.

Lovely venue and friendly staff. However service was quite slow. We waited over an hour before our main course arrived. Extremely greasy batter for the fish and chips. But otherwise a lovely evening and we would visit again.

This is a delightful restaurant in a rural setting. Service was a little slow, but the restaurant was busy. Food was good quality and tasty.

We were a party of 5 for Sunday lunch. We agreed that the food was an 8.5 out of 10 simply because the roast potatoes were just a bit underdone. The flavors were lovely and portion sized were adequate.

My wife and I went to the Mole for our wedding anniversary dinner, and it was all we could have hoped for. A lovely environment, friendly staff, excellent food and wine. We will definitely be coming again. Thank you for a lovely evening.
