Hello. They definately have a couple of smaller rooms to the right of the main front entrance. As the previous writer mentioned, this is a high demand establishment so call them.

Yes they do have both, heck out their web site which has the beer list and menu. You will not find main dish items that are gluten free but some appetizers and cider.
