SquareMeal Review of The Mole Inn

Sitting in a pretty garden surrounded by countryside just five miles from Oxford, this pristine 300-year-old inn sports scrubbed wooden tables, rough-hewn walls and a goodly assortment of local drinkers – although long-standing owners and easy-going staff make everyone welcome, with care and attention evident in everything from the local real ales to the please-all menus. Proper unaffected pub grub is the lunchtime deal (think burgers with aïoli, minute steak sandwiches or fish and chips), while the evening carte features dishes with a modern British flavour – perhaps a goats’ cheese 'panwich' with beetroot, orange and pea shoot salad ahead of roast cod with saffron risotto, prawns and chorizo or rosemary- crusted pork tenderloin and belly with mash, apple and onion soubise. It’s a good idea to book ahead, even if you’re simply planning a quick lunchtime snack.

My view would largely coincide with the Overview. Goodish honest, food served in a very pleasant up to date spacious country pub which is comfortable and seems to attract quite a good following. The wine was slightly disappointing, but not every outfit can afford to tie up too much cash in a comprehensive cellar, which is understandably an issue at a few other restaurants which are near me. I'd definitely go back if I were heading in that direction, but it is a little too far away for us to make a special journey when there are places around Henley on Thames equally as good and some more expensive but better.
