We visited as a family of 6, we had pre-booked which is advisable as it can get quite busy. Gorgeous food, a great menu, relaxed atmosphere & friendly staff. Which is why it’s not our first visit. Will be returning.

Yes the entrance to the pub is wheelchair friendly, and there are tables either side of the interior doors, which allow easy access. There is also a disabled toilet.
