Pub is accessible for all users. Wheelchair users can access the pub via the ramp to the rear of the building. Unfortunately we do not have toilets for wheelchair users but there is a recently refurbished public toilet which is accessible across the road. The bedrooms are on the first floor and are accessed via a staircase so may not suit all. All our staff are trained to assist to help guests with disabilities or special needs when required.
