Thank you for your review. I am however a little baffled by your comment as our main front road entrance is a disabled entrance with ramp, signs and wide access. This leads directly into the pub where we also have a disabled toilet. The three...More

I'm not sure, you could always call them or fill out the contact us form on their website.
Hi, I want to arrange group (15-20) for my sons 40th, I believe you have an area that is raised and away from the main section, it opens onto a terrace. Would it be possible to reserve this area on the 26th November? Also do you cater for children of which there will be 4. Thanks Denise Shorer

Do you allow small dogs in some area? We have two new puppies (11 weeks old) and can't really leave them on their own at the moment. Also we are vegan so wonder if you have a vegan option for roast dinner or whether we could create one from the menu? Thanks
