The Mole has a reputation in the area for good food. We haven't been for a few years so went to see how it was. The food was good. Lovely devilled kidneys, interesting lamb, chick pea and goats cheese (who knew?), fresh calamari and yummy desserts. So why only three stars? The pub has decided to pack the punters in!... More

This remains an outstanding venue for Sunday lunch. Its proximity to the M40 makes it very accessible too. The food is of a superb quality and presentation, portions very adequate and service very friendly and prompt. Highly recommended - we drive 60 miles each way to have lunch here - but booking is pretty essential.

So lucky to have a hot September day and the perfect resting place to have a lunch outside in the lovely garden/patio area. Great find for a Monday too as often places are closed. A really tasty Mole burger with cheese and bacon, on a tasty roll with thin cut chips and salad. Soda, couple of glasses of wine and... More

Arrived for lunch on a sunny day and had pre lunch drinks in the lovely garden. Although busy the waiting times were not excessive. The staff (with the exception of the young lady on reception) were full of smiles and knowledgeable when dealing with our queries concerning the menu. It was one of the best meals we have had in...

Beautiful countryside pub . It is best to book as the place was really full when we arrived . This pub has been renovated really nicely . The service was very slow and the waiting time between courses very long . The choice on the menu is very extensive but I am afraid the quality of the food is only... More

We were staying locally & went here for a Sunday evening meal. The pub was very busy & we did have to wait some time before ordering, however the restaurant manager was most apologetic. We liked the rustic atmosphere & all the beams & the small eating areas although we asked to move tables as it was obvious there was... More

I ordered confit of duck and asked the waiter if it would be as good as the one I cook. I cook a mean confit of duck. He said it would be good and indeed it was! Very attentive and pleasant staff and beautiful gardens. We have been here several times and will continue to return.

We were visiting friends in Abingdon and they had told us about this place and suggested we tried it. It was a really super lunch, the food was excellent, the service was very good and staff unpretentious. The manager treated us really well due to a short delay because they were so busy. \\\\\\\but that did not spoil the experience... More

Great country pub serving excellent quality food in a charming family friendly setting. Steaks perfectly cooked and served with a choice of excellent sauces (butter and anchovy strongly recommended).
