Stumbled upon Tom's Deli on a recent trip to Winchester, and decided to stop for lunch. The cafe was full so we opted to eat outside. We ordered the deep fried Calamari main to share as a starter. The Calamari were amazing, cooked to perfection...More

No facy frills, but where else in Winchester can you get a bowl of authentic pasta and a glass of wine at reasonable rates. Italian back street style vs chain restaurants get my vote any day. No wonder it’s taken over the pavements outside!

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.
