We ate in the upstairs restaurant, which is very noisy and more like a works canteen than a restaurant and has a somewhat stale smell. Zero ambience, although the staff were friendly and fairly efficient. The food offering was dated - what you would have...More

No, there are no lifts of any sorts. Unless for a special occassion, most of the seating happens downstairs and I actually think the upper bit of the restaurant has to be specially booked out upon request. I hope this helps!

Description
A character pub restaurant centrally located. Privately owned and operated since 1992.In addition to the excellent food and drink at great value prices, we are proud of our very friendly staff, which combined with the ‘barn’ character setting and decor makes us a special place for a meal in our lovely air conditioned Grill restaurant, or a drink and snack in our air conditioned bar and conservatory.Enjoy a drink or snack in our delightful garden, sunny during the day, heated for those cooler days and beautifully illuminated by night.Our philosophy is "to serve freshly prepared food, using high quality raw materials at unbeatable prices."The restaurant menu has evolved over recent years, taking account of fashion changes and is based on grills and Mediterranean specialities. We have a great reputation for steaks, using only prime 28 day matured British beef.We cater for weddings and have a civil ceremony licence, and private parties.
