I'm not sure, however the landlady Jane is very accommodating and I'm sure if given enough notice would sort something. There's certainly no harm in asking.

Description
This family run pub/restaurant prides itself on the high quality, homecooked food that is served 7 days a week. Not only do we provide traditional English dishes, our extensive menu contains a number of different cuisines, to make sure there is something for everyone's taste buds! We offer a variety of dishes ranging from baguettes with tempting fillings for a light snack, to our signature Mixed Grill which is not for the faint hearted! We pride ourselves on using the best british produce, cooked by highly trained chefs. The unique building attracts customers from all over the country and even international visitors. The slanted' floors alone, are worth visiting the business for! The traditional and homely decor provides the perfect surrounding for a family occasion. The building boasts a fantastic beer garden and bowling green, which is an ideal place to spend a hot summer's day, and if that wasn't enough the sports bar exhibits a vast range of memorabilia for those sports enthusiasts!
