Our Pooch Policy!


As dog lovers and owners, it would be shame if we didn’t welcome dogs into our Deli & Bistro. However, we do strive to create a more intimate atmosphere for our evening diners. Therefore, we allow well-behaved dogs, kept on a lead, until 5pm, after which we prefer people only! Please still mention that you are bringing your dog when you book, even if you are well within the allotted time.
