Enjoy this year’s Christmas festivities with

The Grumpy Mole

Join us for CHRISTMAS DAY - dine in style at The Grumpy Mole. We only have one sitting as we believe this special day should be unhurried and one to remember! With linen-clad tables, eco-friendly crackers, champagne and canapés on arrival followed by a 5-course lunch with all the trimmings.

From 29th November to 24th December (in addition to our normal menus) we are offering a delicious 2 and 3 course FESTIVE MENU (inclusive of coffee and warm mini mince pie) to get us all in the mood.

Catching up with family and friends on BOXING DAY then a scrumptious 2 or 3 course lunch menu awaits you.

Christmas Day bookings are being taken from 1st September. Our phone lines open at 10am.

We are delighted you have found us and sincerely hope that you are persuaded to visit one of our five beautiful venues.

Our ethos has always been a simple one - to offer delicious food in stylish but cosy surroundings and to make your experience a relaxing and special one.

The food we serve is always cooked fresh on the premises and, where possible, we use local ingredients and suppliers.

Our dedicated staff and professional management team will do everything possible to make your experience a memorable one - be it for business, pleasure or just to pass the time.

Whether you visit for a quick sandwich in the bar, a traditional afternoon tea on linen-clad tables, or an exquisite candle-lit three course dinner, the attention to detail is the same.

Our venues are often busy, particularly at weekends and Bank Holidays, so advance booking for larger parties is advisable.

We hope you too will make The Grumpy Mole your special place.
