We were a group of five, well-travelled, gastronomic hoteliers trying out the menu for the first time. Not an extensive menu, which was fine, but what was served was absolutely average for a gastro-pub. Staff were pleasant and the place was attractive, though the bizarre...More

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.
