Description: The Mole and Chicken is a picturesque, ivy-covered country pub and restaurant in Easington near Long Crendon that is renowned for its Sunday roasts and superb views of the surrounding Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire countryside. The country-cottage-chic interior is all chocolate brown and tan leather seats, whitewashed walls and designer fabrics, and the kitchen at The Mole and Chicken uses seasonal ingredients to create their moreish Mediterranean/British menu. We highly recommend the BBQ belly pork ribs; chilli fried baby squid with garlic, lemon and olive oil; and the devilled kidneys on toast. Enjoyed yourself so much that you don't want to leave? You don't have to, just book one of the five boutique bedrooms located next door!

I have been to this restaurant many times before but it is losing its quality. We had to wait 50 mins in between our starter & main course. Food was terrible quality. We were over charged twice on our bill. I emailed the restaurant to discuss our visit but 9 days later we still have not received a reply. I... More

Today we stumbled upon this pub with our friends and were not disappointed. A warm welcome, delicious food, friendly and relaxed service and cozy fire on a cold day. The Mushroom and Truffle soup was quite simply divine and if Christmas day lunch tastes half as good as that which we enjoyed today I'll be very happy. A lovely find... More

Hadn't been for several years and chose this place for a Xmas lunch for the team. Table of Seven, fixed Xmas menu of high quality - great service and the value was outstanding. Will be back to try the rest of the menu soon!

If you're looking for great food, great service and an excellent environment then the Mole and Chicken is the place to go. My wife and I visited the restaurant this week and it was outstanding. Check it out yourself.

I had a great experience though I can see on here others haven't. We were just driving back from Waddesdon Manor and saw a sign to this place and thought we would see where it was. We popped in and had a wine by the open fire and it was perfect. The restaurant was empty - it was only 6pm... More

I called at 2pm to ensure they were not to full to fit us in for a quick late lunch. I was asked how long we would be, and said 10 minutes max. I was asked to hold and after a few minutes was told "The chef has turned everything off in the kitchen now" Their website clearly states food... More

We had a lovely stay and really enjoyed our breakfasts and evening meal. Rooms quaint and cosy and lovely staff, particularly Liam the under manager. Set in beautiful countryside but a shame the road is quite busy. We went on a Groupon deal and really felt we did well otherwise to stay would border on very expensive.
