We returned to the Mole and I could not resist the Wagyu burger again, and it was as delicious as I remembered it. Also repeated the mango and passion fruit pavlova, though shared it with my wife and her four excellent home-made icecreams. I drank...More

We have eaten at The Mole Inn several times over the past 2 years and have never had a bad meal. Their roast dinner is one of the best I have tried. Lovely garden to sit in during the summer months, cannot recommend the Mole...More

As mentioned in previous reviews, lovely location, great food, but apart from one male member of staff who took us to our table, the staff did not make us feel welcome nor cared for. This is a restaurant not a pub and the staff need...More

The setting is magical. The ambience relaxed yet classy. The staff are both efficient and friendly. The food is delicious. Perfect for a special occasion

Really enjoyed our meal last week. Food was superb, well presented, good portion size (although the beetroot/goats cheese starter was a bit skimpy!) would go again and recommend

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.
