Good for large parties

Came here as a party of 15 or so. On arrival we were told that there had been a power cut and the kitchen was on a generator......images of a trip to a fish and chip shop sprung to mind. Shouldn't have worried....had a nice drink at the bar, followed by great service and food. I tried the Thais... read more

This is one of my favourite places to go in Oxfordshire, slightly off the beaten track - but worth a visit. Food is always good and staff are very friendly. Both lunch time and evening meals are good, but can get busy so I would always recommend booking.

We both chose items from the 'lunchtime snacks' menu, and walked away completely full which was not a bad thing. Great atmosphere and friendly staff!

Having wanted to try the Mole for some time now I've recently been lucky enough to eat there twice in a week! Both visits were at lunch time and being Christmas they were very busy but the service was still friendly and efficient. On the first visit I had three courses from the set menu, which varied for me in... More

After a fabulous lunch at the Tripadvisor #2 rated restaurant in Liverpool, I was not hungry when I came here for dinner. So I had bread and a simple salad of shredded duck & pork belly, chilli, bean shoots, lime, coriander, rocket salad. Very interesting combination of ingredients. Need to come back and try the interesting menu and wine list... More

Annual reunion with 10 friends was made perfect by fantastic service and lovely food. Restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Would recommend a visit. Will certainly return.

Our meal was delicious and the steak was perfectly cooked. Home cooked chips and a lovely dessert were worth the indulgence! We will definitely be visiting again and it is certainly somewhere we would recommend to friends.

Events have conspired against my wife and I returning during the past six months, but today we contrived to be in the area at lunch time. From the friendly welcome to the delicious cappuccino, excellence prevailed. My wife and I had, as we always seem to do, the set menu. My wife's satisfactorily generous first course of smoked salmon had... More
