Hi, we are thinking of coming tomorrow early evening. There will be at least 7, with one person in a wheelchair. If there are more of us, there will be more wheelchair users. How accessible is your restaurant? Room to get to & from the table without disturbing other diners is our main concern, as well as getting into the building.
