Menu was very varied and a bit all over the place. Could probably be simplified. We had been warned that the portions were very large prior to visiting. Food was well presented and tasty but certainly too large. We all (table of 5) had starters...More

I would not think so other than guide dogs. I have never seen a dog in the restaurant but a phone call to the Blair would answer your question.
