Disabled access is difficult through the front of the pub because of a flight of steps, but we have an entrance at the rear which is more suitable. Let us know and we will open the door for you. We have a disabled loo.
Children and minors
The Armoury is essentially an adult's environment, although children of the well-behaved variety are welcome. We do have changing facilities and a limited number of high chairs are available.
Prams and pushchairs
Due to the constricted nature of some of the dining areas, could we ask you not to bring prams or pushchairs into the pub. We have experienced considerable congestion in the past which causes problems on a number of levels. Sorry if this causes any inconvenience.
Dogs of the well behaved and on-the leash variety are welcome in the bar area.
We do take bookings, but we try to make sure that there is room for customers who are not able to book in advance, so if you have not made a reservation, it's not the end of the world. If there are no tables free we run a waiting list from behind the bar.
Please make bookings by calling or using our online bookings calendar link at the top of the page. Unfortunately we are not able to take bookings via email or facebook.
We don't reserve any of our outside tables so if you enjoy a little alfresco dining these are on a first come first served basis.
Sadly due to our operation we are not able to cater for very large parties or groups.
