Please note that it is our policy to make regular changes to the menus, which can sometimes be at very short notice and that bookings for 10 people or above will require either a pre-order, reduced menu, set menu or a combination depending on numbers. This is to ensure that we can deliver the best possible level of service and quality to our guests.
To avoid disappointment, please call or email the pub for bookings of over 7 people and do not add additional guests in the notes section as they may not be picked up and there may be no availability.
We had a delicious Sunday roast. The service was excellent and the meal was served very promptly.
Lovely food as usual. Appreciate that the barman always makes me a lovely non-alcoholic fruit punch. The personal touch goes such a long way to make a visit to the Mole Inn extra special.
Our visit could not have gone better; we had reserved our table online but with heavy traffic we’re going to be late so rang and they were able to not only hold our table for us but let us place our orders on the phone, making everything super-smooth. It was hot so we opted to dine outside at a table tucked away in a delightful glade in the garden. Our food was all delicious (burgers and Caesar Salad), our waitress very helpful and our experience excellent. We will be coming again!
Very pretty setting, in a lovely old building with a good atmosphere. The table for 4 was a bit small for comfort and we felt a bit squashed, not side plates were provided until asked for. Food was good all round except the steak which was tasty and cooked how we asked for was not juicy. I do not think that it warranted a 12.5 percent service charge that been said we left it at that, it should be left to customer discretion and not automatically added.
First rate evening out, lovely pub, excellent well-informed service, and food which is well above most gastro pubs and many restaurants too. Highly recommend The Mole Inn.
My first visit but certainly not my last - food was absolutely exceptional, service was super friendly and what a beautiful place! Delivery was a little slow, we only just managed to get desserts finished within the 2 and a quarter hours allotted to us but a minor point (for us) given the quality of food and service
Great atmosphere with discrete, yet attentive service. Marvelous cooking and generous portions.
We had an amazing lunch and looking forward to returning again soon ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 👍
Not enough vegetarian options
Excellent food and service as always. This is a special place.
Very good pub with a nice but simple menu, serving a variety of drinks including a local brewery (Whitehorse). Good sized car park. Service was attentive and discreet. As per most places these days they add the ‘optional’ service charge to the bill. For once I didn’t feel the need to object and ask for it to be removed. I didn’t check though whether there is a management charge on service or not but hopefully all goes to the staff who made our lunch very enjoyable.
Lovely evening as always at The Mole
We had a fantastic lunch. I would highly recommend The Mole Inn for a special meal. The garden is also spectacular!
We had a lovely lunch. The food was delicious. We will definitely return.
Excellent food and very good service
We were exhausted from a long got walk and the Mole Ibn was an oasis of sittibg in a calm cool garden 'room', with excellent service and food. We are away well refeshed and fulfilled.- Thankyou.
Very nice Sunday lunch
Lovely atmosphere and great service.
Great online system for groups. Made what can be challenging very straightforward.
The setting of the Mole us superb. We had a wonderful meal and the staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Will definitely go again.
I eat at the Mole frequently because both food and service are reliably excellent.
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.
Never fails us, fabulous lunch as always
