Wheelchair access

While we have level access to the ground floor bar, due to the physical restraints of the building we are unfortunately unable to offer disabled toilets at this level. The toilets and first floor restaurant can be accessed via the main staircase at the back of the pub or the spiral stairs for the more agile.

Many apologies: this is not as we would wish it.

Children and minors

Whilst primarily an adult's environment, children of the well behaved variety are welcome in the upstairs restaurant away from the bar, although the pub is not particularly suitable for babies and toddlers in the evenings. We do have changing facilities and a limited number of high chairs are available.

Due to the physical limitations of the building we cannot allow prams inside at any time, but we do offer space for safe keeping next to the pub which is under cover from all the elements.


Dogs of the well behaved and on-the leash variety are welcome in the bar area and outside.

A few hints on how things work, service wise

First off, life revolves around the bar, so that's where to head for drinks, menus and to find out where you're sitting if you've booked.

Food ordering:

Outside and ground floor - please find a table, note its number and then order at the bar when you're ready. 1st floor Restaurant - someone will pop over and take your order.


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.

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.


We are afraid we are unable to accommodate wedding parties or functions.
