Transport & Parking
Parking is easy at all these places, not all disabled marked, but lots of room to park anyway.
The little pubs are more inviting as outside visits, as inside there are a few steps that prevent full use of facilities. Plenty of areas for you to sit and relax while enjoying a cool refreshing drink, or even a light bite.
Toilets are reasonable available, but not all have disabled toilets, so plan carefully. We found all to be clean enough, but pubs are busy places, so may not always be up to standard management would like.
In all places we found staff attentive, willing and friendly enough, we never felt unwelcome.
