We wanted to meet up with our daughter and partner who live in Oxford and this was chosen via TA. It is a quite delightful gastropub with a lovely garden and probably the best collective staff unit I have come across in the UK without Michelin stars attached.. The menu is excellent giving both a set and al a carte... More

Beautifully cooked food which we ate on a lovely sunny day in one of the many little seating areas in the Mole's fantastic garden!

Having only been once it was lovely to experience the atmospheric surrounding in a beautiful area. Decor is idyllic, food was something a bit different, a great menu not a huge choice but lovely options! Overall love evening meal!

Very professional, great food, service just right. It's firmly on my list of places to take clients for lunch. I forgot to leave a tip after a delightful lunch last week, so I hope this review makes up for it!

For an out of the way restaurant that's well off the beaten track, this place is busy all the time and that in itself is an example of how good it is, good staff, a smashing location, especially on a sunny warm day where advantage can be made of the outdoor seating and, good food. But why oh why do... More

On a special Valentine's Night (special price - reduced menu), couples were knocked into second place by a large party seated in the middle of the restaurant. The "complimentary" glass of fizz was served without identification. So, although pleasant, who knows what it was. The wine I ordered was not the wine brought to the table and after a short... More

We had a nice meal here. The ambiance is perfect and the staff very friendly. The food is of a good standard. For pub food I can't fault it. If I had to pick a fault it would be that the prices charged did not match the quality of the food.

Dined here with my family, beautiful food. Must try the banana and peanut dessert, it is absolutely sublime. I think the waitress thought I was joking when I asked for another one! Amazing service, food looked fantastic and tasted even better. Highly recommend.

I was on a business trip for my first visit to any part of GB. This restaurant gave me the incentive to come back for a vacation. The grounds are lovely, the restaurant is beautiful. The food was inventive and delicious. I had the hot beet salad with whipped goat cheese. It was wonderful. I would have ordered the a... More
