This was like any other pub that you may have seen. The menu does offer some neat and interesting options though. I had an egg and bacon butty which was really good. They do offer an all day breakfast option and a brunch.

Perfectly fine establishment, popular with young adults. Nothing special, just average in pretty much every way.

No, it would be impossible with a scooter. There are steps. They may have a patio in the summer, but the bathrooms would be a problem.

Yes. There were some items that were gluten free e.g. Their chocolate torte dessert was listed as gluten free. They have gluten free blinis too.
