Although our second floor is accessible only via a staircase, and our washrooms cannot accommodate push-button entry and grab bars, our entrance is accessible and our ground floor includes accessible tables. If you are a wheelchair user, please note this on your reservation and we will ensure that you are seated in a section appropriate to your needs.

We do indeed. You can find our food and drink menus here.
