Very good food, great service, lovely view and free car park next door. Limited pub style menu, which is a good thing. Do less very well. Some lovely local specials on the board. Give it a try.

Great pub with excellent atmosphere, offering a variety of live music, also quiz nights. Traditional pub grub, well presented offering great value for money. The staff are always friendly and nothing is too much trouble.

I can see the Hampton INN from my lounge window. So got to eat there. This is very much an old-fashioned menu and drinks list.

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
