This looks like a traditional English Pub but the emphasis is on home cooked food of a good standard in a pleasant setting. When we visited the Whitmore Arms there were several parties enjoying a pre Christmas meal.

Sorry, I don't have the answer to you question. The best thing to do is call The Whitmore Arms, and ask them yourself. Good luck.
