Beautiful gardens, delightful location, really pleasant staff and good food. If there was a minor irritation it was this: It was lunchtime, I ordered a white wine spritzer. When the bill arrived we had been charged 50 pence for the soda water on top of the cost of the wine - which was not cheap in... read more

Went to this restaurant as guests at a wedding party of 12 people. The building has lovely beams but a modern, light atmosphere. We had an area to ourselves but through open areas between wooden posts still felt part of the rest of the Restaurant which was crowded. In spite of being full the atmosphere was calm with a background... More

My wife and I turned up here for an evening meal after being rudely turned away from a nearby eating place. What a contrast! At the Mole Inn we received a warm and friendly welcome followed by a very good meal. Definitely worth a visit if you're looking for a meal in this area.

We saw a sign post for the Mole Inn on our way to Henley but didn't have time to stop we returned by the same route so we could find it and we're delighted with what we discovered. The pub itself is delightful with lovely gardens and plenty of private eating spaces. The interior is charming & the staff were... More

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

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!
