This is a lovely renovated restaurant in remote setting but easy to access. The internal timber construction is beautiful, staff are very helpful and the food is excellent. Well worth trying if in Oxford area.

We were guests of friends, who had been here before. An excellent choice of venue, situated in a delightful garden. An interesting menu and delicious food generously served. Good, friendly and prompt service. We shall return!

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.
