The food is excellent and consistent. Been there before... and the staff are so helpful. Afterwards we went round to the museum behind. What good value at £1 adults entrance fee. Loads to look at. Good venue for tourists.

Didn't see any whilst I was there. Maybe guide dogs would be allowed

I am not sure but if you have guide dogs it should be acceptable by law
