The Toad is a pub. However, the food is a surprise! An extremely pleasant surprise. I have eaten in high end restaurants where the food has not been of such high quality. Well done Toad, keep it up.

I have never seen a dog inside the Toad but there is plenty of seating outside and lots of people take their dogs and eat there.
