We think our location is perfect for a family or pet owners as there are not many pubs where the kids can run about outside and be safe. Glad you enjoyed your visit.

Hi, Yes it is very dog friendly and it is wheelchair friendly too. The staff are so helpful and friendly. I do advise you book a table, as they are usually busy. You can book a certain table and a time which suits you.
