Had a nice mid week lunch here with a colleague. Friendly staff, lovely salad and ploughman's and a nice beer. Enjoy. We sat outside, which was nice enough, but wandered through the bar to pay which was an experience. Like a scene from Downton/Game Of...More

Yes, both inside and out.
Can not a member of staff or landlord answer the question? Is there access for a fairly large wheelchair into this pub? My quadriplegic friend is no longer able to stand or use crutches and is both tall and weighs 18 stone so we are unable to carry/support him - he has to have wheelchair access! Why, in this, supposedly enlightened, day and age do we nearly always have to ask this question of pubs and restaurants and why is it so hard to get a definitive reply?
