Not sure rooms seem to be on the 1st floor the room we had did have wooden floors, so perhaps they may allow it , they are permitted in the bar area and garden. We really enjoyed it there , food amazing and service 110%

I don't know for sure, but the folks who run the place seemed genuinely keen to help wherever possible, so just give them a call. I suspect if they can be flexible, they will be.
