My husband booked the Mole and Chicken for a surprise birthday meal. We had a really lovely evening and will definitely be returning. The pub/restaurant is lovely, very cosy and the staff were friendly and attentive. The food was great, I particularly enjoyed my starter of crispy duck with cashew nuts, the a la carte is not cheap but it... More

Lovely food, service didn't match. If you're not middle class and white then I wouldn't bother. I was stood at the bar waiting to be served, an elderly couple walked in and went straight to the bar, at which point the young lady serving went straight to them to ask what they required, even though I was stood there patiently...

Dear David, Thank you for your comments on the lovely food. You have then basically insinuated that one of my staff members is racist! I have ran this restaurant for almost ten years and have never been so insulted. You have deeply upset the 18 year old girl in question who is one of the nicest and most genuine people... More

We have been meaning to try The Mole & Chicken for a while, we were not disappointed. Yes it's expensive, particularly on drinks, however the food does not disappoint. Starters (Salmon course & Squid options chosen) in particular were really tasty and fresh. Likewise the main courses (Fish & chips, Lamb and Ribeye) were very good indeed. Lots of choice... More

Rooms are very good with a great deal of attention... More

We've not visited for a while and I really don't know why. Tonight was a treat provided by a long standing customer and it was superb. We arrived a bit early but we're happy to have a drink in the bar. When the rest of the group arrived we sat and looked over the menu. Unusually, I didn't get past... More

We had a delicious lunch this week; the stone bass combined so well with the smoked bacon and the devilled kidneys were a delight. Just a shame that the service was slow; we spent half an hour longer than we should have done at the table.

Description
The Mole and Chicken is a picturesque, ivy-covered country pub and restaurant in Easington near Long Crendon that is renowned for its Sunday roasts and superb views of the surrounding Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire countryside. The country-cottage-chic interior is all chocolate brown and tan leather seats, whitewashed walls and designer fabrics, and the kitchen at The Mole and Chicken uses seasonal ingredients to create their moreish Mediterranean/British menu. We highly recommend the BBQ belly pork ribs; chilli fried baby squid with garlic, lemon and olive oil; and the devilled kidneys on toast. Enjoyed yourself so much that you don't want to leave? You don't have to, just book one of the five boutique bedrooms located next door!
