Finding new restaurants and bars to try can often be a bit of a minefield, especially when you’re trying to work out whether they’re accessible or not. We’re firm believers in the fact that all venues should strive to welcome everyone into their establishments, going the extra mile to ensure that customers can relax and enjoy themselves without having to worry about the experience.

Sometimes this information can be hard to find and often involves messaging the venues themselves to work out whether they have the right facilities and accessibility adjustments.
