I have been to The Mole on multiple occasions in both small and large groups and it has always been exceptional. Excellent staff and wonderful food. It's a busy place so I would always recommend booking.

I am sorry, I don't know if the Mole offers breakfast - I suspect they don't. We have only ever been there for lunch. They do dinner too. Hope this helps. Helen J.

Yes. We have eaten at both lunchtime and evening here and both services were of the same quality. We had a Christmas Eve lunch here this week and it was just fabulous.
