Being such a lovely day yesterday and Jean just having finished her allotted night duty for the week we went out to lunch. Jean’s choice was the Brook Inn, Sallybrook. Click HERE for their website. There is roadside parking available and also a car park to the rear. The front entrance is well ramped and accessible. We chose an outside table as it seemed such a shame to eat indoors on such a fine day. The food was perfect and the service was both attentive and friendly. Full marks for both.
I was aware from a previous visit that the wheelchair accessible toilet was not the best and had made staff aware of my concerns. This time the light was not working and I still could not get my wheelchair in. I left the wheelchair at the door and the door a little sliver open to allow some light in but privacy is good in delicate situations. I made two staff members aware of the issues and that the resolution to getting the wheelchair in was to change the door to outward opening. I couldn’t make a recommendation on the darkness as I didn’t know whether it was simply a bulb problem or something more serious. Disabled Accessibility Scale Rating 2 from 5
I will make a return visit at some stage and will reassess the rating.
