The Mole Inn


The Mole Inn is a lovely 300-year-old, Grade II listed building that has put the village of Toot Baldon on the foodie map with the culinary output of chef and host Gary Witchalls. His dedication in the kitchen is matched by the front-of-house professionalism of his wife, Jenny. Drinks are also a strength: try a pint of Hook Norton, Shepherd Neame Spitfire or The Mole's Pleasure - developed together with Moodley's microbrewery, which is particularly suited to the pub's dry-aged steaks from Aberdeenshire. Pick from rib-eye, rump, sirloin or fillet steaks and then choose your sauce. Other options could include hot roasted mixed beets, whipped goats' cheese and horseradish, hazelnuts, cumin caramelised shallots and orange; cannon of hogget, spiced lamb breast, minted pea purée, pea cress and parmesan crumbed potatoes; and treacle tart with Carnation milk ice cream. Leather sofas, stripped beams, solid white walls and terracotta floors provide the perfect background for a leisurely meal.
