Traditional Pub & Fine Dining
in Monk Sherborne, Hampshire
The Mole Inn dates back to 1870. It was originally called The New Inn and was renamed The Mole Inn in 1960. For many years, under the Green King Brewery and a series of different landlords The Mole Inn was a much loved and well-used village pub. In 2009 the pub became a Free house and shortly after was very nearly lost to the village. The Mole remained closed for over five years. Villagers and locals were delighted when new Landlord, Keith Giles stepped in and worked tirelessly to restore the pub to way beyond its former glory. He very proudly opened the doors again to the public in October 2016.
