we absolutely love this place. It is small but really cosy. Tom the owner is always here to recommend a good bottle of wine or to tell us all about the specials. In the summer there is a nice terrasse outside.

Always worth asking Tom. He is always up for new challenges and can easily say no if necessary.

I don't know for sure. In the summer they have an open air 'bistro' style seating too so there I am sure it is n o problem. Tom is a very friendly and accommodating chap. I suggest you call him and just ask.
