Lovely meal in restaurant with fairly good access
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Walking Aid, Wheelchair
We ate outside at one of the many tables which have a view of the harbour.
Transport & Parking
The restaurant does not have a car park but is across the road from a public car park. There is also on street parking but it might be difficult to find a space there.
The very large outside seating area is part of the pavement but there is plenty of space and it is level. The entrance is also level. It has double doors which are always a bit more difficult with a wheelchair but there are hooks to hold them back - and these are about waist level which also makes it easier. When we left after using the toilet one of the staff helped us with the doors. Some of the tables inside are up a step - see picture. As we only went inside to use the toilet I'm not sure if there is ramp access to these tables from further back in the restaurant.
The door was wide, opened outwards and helpfully stayed open by itself. You can get straight in from the main part of the restaurant - no awkward turns or corridors. The toilet is a bit cramped for a wheelchair user and assistant but we managed. A chair beside the toilet would make a sideways transfer difficult. There were grab rails on both sides. There is not a red cord.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
We'd certainly go again. I had an unusual fish and chips dish made with smoked haddock which was very tasty. The restaurant is beside the harbour so there is plenty to see. A previous reviewer has written a helpful review of the quayside and posted a picture of the public toilet just across from the restaurant. The position of grab rails in toilets is essential in deciding whether or not we can go to a place so that picture was very useful - thanks DaisyDoo! We walked/wheeled down the right hand pier of the harbour which is not cobbled and has lots of seats.
