We are happy to help with any enquiries you may have about this (including providing photos) so please get in touch with us via phone 01520 744 262 or email.
The main bar/dining area is wheelchair accessible. The front door to the bar/dining area is accessed via a ramp from the street (opposite our principle car park). The bar/dining area does not have any steps within it. There is a disabled toilet available which also contains baby changing facilities.
The Inn also offers outside dining tables. There are some at road level beside the Inn (opposite the car park) which are fully wheelchair accessible.
In the event of a fire (or other emergency) which requires the building to be evacuated, the main entrance is also a fire door. The assembly point after an evacuation is in the main garden area (across the road) and the adjoining car park (if required).
We are happy to take advance dining bookings from customers (any size of group) who may require some extra assistance to help ensure they are suitably seated to enjoy their meal/drinks.
We have one bedroom downstairs in the Inn. This room is accessible to those who may require some extra assistance, but does not offer full disabled access.
The room has an en-suite shower room which has a walk in shower. The shower area has support handrails but please be aware it does have a small lip to get into the shower. The loo also has support rails.
The bed can be configured as a double or twin and is able to accommodate a cot.
Dogs are welcome in the room (up to a maximum of 2).
