Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We are a group of 12 with possibly 2 dogs staying in Alstonefield over Whit weekend. Can you accommodate us for evening meal on either Sat 27th or Sun 28th May from 7.00pm please? Where can I access your menu on the website? I do not eat meat & want to know your veggie options. I did bring a group of 20 to your pub some 12 years ago but it was under different management then. Can't remember if there was adequate car parking, please advise. Thanks Sonja Walsh
