Toot is derived from an Old English word for a look-out place; Baldon from Bealda's Hill, so the curious village name makes sense when you know. The lovely 300-year-old Mole is a Grade II listed pub that Gary and Jenny Witchalls have put firmly on the foodie map. Leather sofas, stripped beams, solid white walls and terracotta floors provide the perfect background for a leisurely meal. The Mole’s Pleasure is just one of the real ales a beer drinker should enjoy before or with a starter (or main) of spicy lamb meatballs with tomato dressing, Greek yogurt and chargrilled ciabatta; followed by grilled fish of the day with new potatoes, baby leaf and cherry tomato salad, and house dressing; and ending with sticky date pudding with toffee sauce and vanilla ice cream. Food and drink is also served in the garden.
