Typical French bistro in Hexham, delicious cured salmon salad to start, followed by lamb for me and my partner had steak. We shared pudding - an apple tart.

I don't know for sure, but the tables on the front of the restaurant are on a public footpath, so I don't see how they could stop you sitting down with a dog. Sorry I can't help further.
