We booked to eat here based on the TA reviews. Based on the outside, we weren’t expecting anything special, as the restaurant resembles a café. But on entering, it is evident that this restaurant is passionate about Italian food. And the food that we ate...More

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

There is seating outside at Tom's so taking a dog should not be a problem.

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.
