Their suggestion on our group of 8 arrival time changed, it took ages to take order, few staff seen, some arrived later. Was the kitchen understaffed, is our experience normal? Once staff available they were very courteous. It wasn't full Saturday lunchtime, but things were slow. Starters were good, and mains particularly good. Even attracting attention to pay the bill...

Visited on a very cold evening- found us a table even though we did not have a booking. Nice beer, great food and service and a lovely building. Highly recommended

Looked for a restaurant near to Oxford found The Mole, and what a find too! We were unable to get there long before last orders and the kitchen closing but were able to ring ahead, place our order and sit down ion the beautiful surrounding in the nick of time. The staff there couldn't have been more accommodating! The food... More

Firstly I just wanted to say wow. Brilliant little pub which serves high quality food. I can't believe how brilliant the food tasted. We ordered fish and chips With peas and for dessert we ordered a chocolate brownie with peanut butter ice cream. I would recommend anyone to visit. The service was number 1. Thanks again. Regards Parv and Mandeep.

9 of us here for a business dinner. Fantastic food and friendly prompt service. Could do with a bigger selection of beers but otherwise faultless.

The Chef must have had a bad evening. I have been to The Mole several times and always had a fairly good meal. Friday 4th November one the worst Thai Fish cakes I have ever had. Runny potato no flavour of coriander or spices let alone fish. Paupetteof guinea fowl was tasteless. Pomme de something not good. I had my... More

Dinner for four from a very good menu, kindly served in friendly surroundings. Judge a restaurant by the state of its toilets, then the Mole has to be five star.

I simply don't have enough superlatives to do this place justice! I went for dinner there last Friday with my family and was so impressed we went back less than 48 hours later. The staff are incredibly professional but good fun as well. All their foreign staff speak perfect English as well. There is nothing worse than having to indulge... More

Came (again) for Sunday roast today. We shared a warm selection of breads first with olive oil and balsamic vinegar followed by a roast lamb main course each. The breads were wonderful and were obviously freshly baked. The roast lambs were wonderful, came with fresh vegetables and a beautiful creamy mash. We finished our lunch with desserts, my wife had...

Not busy that evening, but packed in closely to other tables. I regretted my choice as is sometimes the case, but hubby loved his meal. All seemed a bit rushed, as if wanting us out quickly for some reason.
