This is a pearl of a pub, but always full, so I recommend booking a booth atleast 24 hours in advance.

As it’s a historical building run by the National Trust I believe. I would recommend just turning up at opening time which is 11am and go in, it was empty when we got there on a Friday. It’s a fabulous place but the food is... More

Yes, it had street access but not sure if there is wheelchair access to the booths. Take her anyway as it’s lovely.

I was there on a weekday afternoon and there was no wait to sit in the upstairs dining area. I was seated right away but, there was only 1 guy working the whole room,,, so service was not that great.
