This weekend took me for a little jaunt to the country – and lunch in the most charming Oxfordshire restaurant, The Mole Inn. Located down a leafy country lane in the rolling hills of Toot Baldon, the inn has stunning English gardens and a cosy dining room with wood-beam rafters overhead.
The Mole Inn prides itself for its sustainably sourced meats and produce. Fish is caught off the English coast and delivered daily. The cheeseboard is entirely British – supplied from a local cheese specialist in the Cotswolds.
The meal was so filling we had to take the cheeseboard to go and finish it that evening in the garden. I am a card-carrying member of the UK cheese fan club – the British make delish cheese. Over time, I have become quite the fromage buff – my favorites are Wigmore and Stinking Bishop.
As sun sets in the country, I am one happy and sated bumpkin!
