Saw a sign for the Mole & Chicken on a road out of Long Crendon and liked the name. Our visit was Saturday lunch time and the place was busy, with no reservation we waited for a short time while a table became available. Little strange as we were told that all tables were reserved. If you like wood check... More

Booked for a late Sunday lunch yesterday, great service, food and atmosphere. Looking forward to returning in the summer and eating on the lovely terrace.

Great food and service, I had a spicy duck salad which was delicious, not a place to just pop in to but very friendly

Dined here at the weekend for my mum's birthday. Had starter of salt and pepper squid which was delicious, main of mushroom tagliatelle which was nice. Staff were extremely polite but a little slow. Overall good experience and will probably return at some point.

Very disappointed. Not good value. We knew it would be expensive but would be happy to pay for good food and device. Poncy food, poncy prices and bad service. Would not go back

I particularly like the way you have pinpointed and explained the areas which caused so much offence, well done! You kept your words brief & i will do the same. Frankly, if you find our food...

Last Friday whilst travelling back home from a day out, we all decided that it was too much trouble to cook. As we were driving close to the Mole and Chicken we thought we would try our chance as I had heard good things about this restaurant. I knew we should normally have needed to book so was a little...

Booked a table for six and were sat on a table for four with two additional chairs added to the end of the table. On arrival only five chairs at table and an additional one was sourced from another table. Table right next to door so every time someone came into the pub or left there was an icy blast... More

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!
