Quality of food was very good for the 3 entrées chosen - in particular the steak and duck were perfectly cooked. The service was a bit hit and miss - confusion over who was taking the orders for drinks/food, one entrée came out significantly after the other two, and a glass of wine ordered to come with dinner didn't appear...

My friend and I had such a wonderful evening yesterday, dining in the garden whilst the sun set and the garden lights came on. We really appreciated the patience of all the staff whilst we chatted away catching up after 2 years, and my apologies for losing all track of time before leaving. Thank you! :) (p.s. food was excellent... More

Went on a Monday night on the spur of the moment after a friend recommend the restaurant. A nice friendly welcome although a little bit of confusion because we had rung and brought forward our booking by half an hour and it hadn't been noted at front of house. The pub has a welcoming feel and is very relaxed. The... More

We booked here for a graduation lunch and the food was very good. The location and grounds are beautiful too. The waitress who served us was lovely. The only downside was how efficient/bossy the manager seemed. She bossed the staff around and was very keen to turn over business as soon as possible. Overall, however, it was a lovely meal... More

We booked. We arrived on time. We waited for over half an hour at the bar with no real explanation for the delay. The young student aged staff did a good job making what was an increasingly out of hand situation feel tolerable but then the head wait person in the form of a barely polite harried person came and...

I've been to The Mole Inn with friends for dinner, with work colleagues for lunch and in the beer garden for a pint and every single time this place was great. I can't comment on the beer selection because by default I drink lager only but the garden is wonderful. There is a strong sense of privacy as the tables... More

I went here one lunchtime as part of a group of seven from work. Despite our large party, service was good and the food delicious. The place is special owing to its lovely surroundings and well kept gardens which are great for a summer time drink. Staff were friendly and explained the menu well. Highly recommended.

Worth a trip out here from Oxford. Pleasant walks from pub car park with lovely views to enjoy till pub opens. We were early - kitchen won't take orders before 19:00 - had a drink and leisurely look at the menu. When kitchen was able to accept food orders our server told us she couldn't tell us the specials as... More

I would fully recommend an evening at The Mole for anyone who likes good food. We had yet another wonderful meal in what can only be described as a very welcoming and relaxing environment, with very attentive and friendly staff. One of the best steaks I have ever had!! Perfect for either a spot of lunch or that special evening... More

A delightful little pub serving gastro-pub food and well worth a visit if in the area of East Oxford. Staff very friendly and helpful and prepared to treat young children as grown up by engaging with them. Shall definitely come back!
