What disabled facilities do you have?

There are 6 steps up to the front door of Grill 48 and due to the age and design of the building we are unable to get a ramp into the building. However assuming our private dining area on the mezzanine level is not in use disabled access can be gained from our James Street entrance. We would advise calling ahead to enable us to check the area is available and ensure we have a table ready for you. Once you are in the building we have 2 disabled toilets one on the ground floor and one on the first floor. If you require assistance to get in and out of the restaurant please do not hesitate to ask.

What parent and child facilities do you have?

If you need assistance in gaining access to restaurant please do not hesitate to ask. We have a number of tables positioned so that prams and pushchairs can sit next to you. Alternatively we have ample space to store prams and push chairs in the restaurant. We have 4 high chairs and a booster seat for toddlers. We also have child cutley, colouring in and games for the children to play. We have an extensive children’s menu however if you have a specific request please just let us know and we will accommodate your needs where possible. We have baby changing facilities in our ground floor disabled toilet.

Can you just come in for a drink?

Although we are mainly a food establishment you are more than welcome to come in just for a drink. We recognise in Dunfermline there are limited places to have cake and a catch up after 6pm and we are more than happy to welcome you to join us at anytime for a drink and catch up. However during the month of December we may not have the available space to do so.
