Lovely Sunday lunch. We had the pork and the lamb shanks, absolutely lovely with homemade Yorkshires and lots of freshly cooked vegetables. Puddings were amazing! Lots of choice and all fantastic. Charming staff.

I believe yes the doors are wide enough for disabled access and the restaurant is on that level so can’t see any not. You can see park right outside too- yes on a hill but at the bottom it’s not steep. Hope this helps
