Enjoyed an evening meal here. Good food at fair prices. Fairly quick service even though they were very busy. Seating is a bit cramped so if you have a large group , it would be a good idea to book.

Sorry no, standard toilet with two steps to negotiate. We can't accommodate a different loo because of restrictions on the 700 year old building. Hope this helps.
