Accessibility info: Entry on street level, no steps and no ramps into the seating area, wheelchairs would have to call first because of narrow aisles, but I bet they would accommodate you; many were there with canes, albeit pretty ones, and were fine. However, the coat room is down a flight of steps and I am not sure if the bathroom may be there too. Check if that is a concern. I found them helpful when I called about my companion, who cannot do stairs.
