Description: The Mole and Chicken is a picturesque, ivy-covered country pub and restaurant in Easington near Long Crendon that is renowned for its Sunday roasts and superb views of the surrounding Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire countryside. The country-cottage-chic interior is all chocolate brown and tan leather seats, whitewashed walls and designer fabrics, and the kitchen at The Mole and Chicken uses seasonal ingredients to create their moreish Mediterranean/British menu. We highly recommend the BBQ belly pork ribs; chilli fried baby squid with garlic, lemon and olive oil; and the devilled kidneys on toast. Enjoyed yourself so much that you don't want to leave? You don't have to, just book one of the five boutique bedrooms located next door!

...and still somewhere I would recommend! Despite not being that attentive as wait staff we had a really nice lunch which was tasty. My son had ham and eggs and he loved it! The Thai curry my husband had was delicious too. Great eatery, beautiful views. Highly recommend.

6 of us stayed and ate here to celebrate my birthday. The menu was full of beautifully cooked and interesting dishes with local provenance and had dishes to suit all of us, including two vegetarians.

The rooms are all delightful and we all enjoyed the delicious home-made flapjacks with our tea in the rooms.

Breakfast was another treat, featuring more locally sourced produce and generous portions.

We went off to Oxford the next day but Bicester shopping village is just as close!

We popped here for a meal during sunday evening on a whim and they were able to facilitate us. The menu was interesting and even had a couple of nice vegetarrean options for my dining companion. The service was pleasant but not overbearing and tere was a nice feel and atmosphere in the place. We'll certainly come back.

We were lucky enough to be invited to The Mole and Chicken to celebrate a close friend's 50th Birthday - our lunch party consisted of eight people for whom the service was prompt, professional and charming. The choice of lunch menu provided enough variety for each of us and the quality of ingredients and cooking was much appreciated by us all. The atmosphere in the restaurant is enhanced by its setting with lovely views over the Vale behind Easington - we look forward to returning in the Summer.
