Wheelchair access

We have full disabled access and a disabled loo.

Children & minors

Whilst primarily an adult's environment, children of the well behaved variety are welcome in areas away from the bar, although the pub is not very suitable for babies and toddlers in the evenings. We do have changing facilities and booster seats are available.


Dogs of the well-behaved and on-the-leash variety are welcome in the front bar, Fireplace Room (to the left of the bar) and the garden.


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.

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.

The gardens

If you are eating outside it is a great help if you could make a note of your table number before ordering. By the way, could you please keep tops on and shoes on at all times. This applies to blokes as well.

Sadly due to our operation we are not able to cater for very large parties or groups.
