Have been there for a drink with my friend. The interior is very unusual though simple and cozy. The staff is friendly and responsive, I can’t agree with previous mean comments. Haven’t tried their food yet, but, will definitely do.

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.

Yes we do allow well behaved dogs on the patio providing they are kept under control at all times and do not disturb the other customers.
