Lovely meal, fantastic desserts and Toddler friendly too. We arrived late but still found the staff friendly and attentive to our needs. A great place to visit on a Sunday afternoon.

Hello, There is step free access into The Gun and to access all facilities. There is one small step onto our riverside terrace area but we do also have a ramp facility if required.

I haven't seen any dogs there but then I have been during the week when most people are at work and are there for their lunch break. I'd suggest giving them a call.
