Hello, There is step free access into The Gun and to access all facilities. There is one small step onto our riverside terrace area but we do also have a ramp facility if required.

I haven't seen any dogs there but then I have been during the week when most people are at work and are there for their lunch break. I'd suggest giving them a call.
