Frequently Asked Questions

Gift Vouchers

We have handwritten gift vouchers at The Pony & Trap which make the ideal gift. To get your hands on one for a loved one, please contact us via telephone to order one or ask us next time you visit.

Gift vouchers can be made out to any monetary value. We charge £2.50 for postage and packing and use the Royal Mail Signed First Class delivery service, or you can collect one in house. Vouchers are strictly valid for 12 months from date of purchase and cannot be extended beyond this time.

(At the moment all vouchers must be paid for over the telephone and posted to you or the recipient.)

Can you cater for food allergies and other dietary requirements?

We are used to dealing all kinds of allergies and dietary requirements but please let us know in advance and we will do our best to tailor a menu to suit them. Please be aware that on very rare occasions we might not be able to accommodate very severe dietary restrictions.

Do you have disabled facilities?

We do have disabled access via a ramp to the bar area but unfortunately no wheelchair access to the restaurant due to steps. Because of the age of the building, we do not have a disabled toilet, although if your table is in the bar area this is on the same level as the toilets.

Are children welcome at The Pony & Trap

Yes, children are welcome and we like to make sure they are comfortable so please mention there are children in your party when booking. We have high chairs too should they be needed. Regrettably there is not a lot of space inside the pub so we would ask that you please leave large pushchairs and buggies in your car and only bring small car seats into the pub if needed.

Can I bring my dog?

Dogs are welcome in in the bar dining area. Please mention when booking that you are bringing a dog and we will do our best to ensure you are on a table with adequate room for them.
