An excellent £18 s worth. My colleague had the fish mixed grill he said it was pretty good. Pretty place , waitresses were your identikit young East... More

The menu was interesting and the food gorgeous. Friendly and attentive staff. In all we had a lovely evening and would definitely go back if... More

Another fine meal at the Mole Inn! Four of us had lunch, and we all enjoyed it hugely. Steaks were done to perfection, which my shoulder of lamb on mousseline potatoes was delicious. Presentation, particularly of the starters, was very strong. Not the cheapest place to eat lunch, but a lovely treat.

Haven't been to The Mole for a couple of years now but it was suggested for this get together with friends and we jumped at the opportunity. The welcome was friendly and accommodating - we sat and had a drink at the bar first. It was busy which gives a nice atmosphere but the service was still good. Everyones food... More

It's an absolutely beautiful building. We had a three course meal with wine. The drinks were really good. The fish cake starter was lovely, though large, perfect to share between two. The lamb was good, with delicious mash. The confit duck was dry, with too many lentils, so disappointing (we would've given our feedback but the waiter didn't ask, despite... More

If your in Oxfordshire why not try the best gasto pub in the world, the food is amazing and very reasonably priced. it gets very busy so always book. sometimes when its busy with it being a country pub there is a lack of available staff, so it can be a bit slow on the service. but it is worth...

Splendid cosy atmosphere. Staff were most on the ball, attentive and well briefed but not over bearing. Very clean restaurant and quality of the food was very high.

Had a wonderful meal on Saturday at The Mole Inn - the food was lovely and the service was also very good. I would recommend that you give this hidden gem restaurant a try. We will be back, thank you.

Small family gathering in celebration of J’s birthday. Four of us had a lovely meal and a pleasant dining experience from start to finish. We enjoyed a wide selection of food, from the starters and mains options. The fish and seafood dishes were particularly good and two of the four, father and daughter, managed a dessert. Good food, good service... More
