29th December - Tapas Night - Fully booked

According to the Cambridge English Dictionary tapas are: small amounts of Spanish food that are served, especially with alcoholic drinks.


So, come down, get your drinks and let us bring our take on tapas to you. Previously we've limited Tom to dishes inspired by or using ingredents from Lancashire. This time there are no limitations, come down and see what's inspired Tom this time.


Due to the nature of Tom, we can't guarantee that any of the dishes will be Spanish or that they will be small. We can guarantee that they will be plentiful and very tasty.


Price £75 / head

Arrive 7.00pm


Please note: Due to the amount of dishes being prepared for this evening it will not be possible to cater for special dietary requirements.
