Just Amazing guys, price is absolutely reasonable and the place is lovely, cozy atmosphere which is ideal for a romantic event. A set menu comes with 23 pounds and it has 3 stunning courses. You can also have a drink on the sofas before sitting for dinner and it's cheap as well. So why not to come here, I'll definitely... More

We loved visiting The Mole for the first time. It has loads of atmosphere, a lovely garden with tables thoughtfully nestling in corners giving privacy though disappointingly the fine menu was limited if you sit outside. We opted to drink outside and go in for a more interesting meal and were delighted with everything we ate.

Dined at The Mole Inn whilst staying in the area and found the whole experience to be of high quality in an excellent setting. Menu choices are varied with a good wine selection. The quality of food and service was excellent with prices very reasonable for the high standard. Would certainly return if in the area again.

This gastropub was highly recommended and we ate here early on a Sunday evening (the hottest day of the year so far). The food was very good, although not exceptional.

Our 1st visit to the mole. It certainly won't be our last. Lovely pub. Great menu. Food was excellent. Certainly a cut above any other gastro type pub I have been to before. Scallop and pork belly starter was delightful. Wife had the mushroom brioche, again top notch. Mains had steak and Stilton pie and pork belly. Food and service... More

Enjoyed a fantastic lunch here yesterday with my family: a party of twelve. Wonderful food and great service and a bonus for any disabled visitors: great disabled toilets and access, which is always hard to find. Thanks to the staff who looked after us and the chef for such great food.

Went here for second sitting for Sunday lunch. This is a very busy place and booking is a must. Good menu with nice choices including traditional Sunday roast. Food was enjoyable and well presented. On the down side service was slow!
