Excellent food, great round table but restaurant was so noisey that couldn't hear what people were saying across the table. Waitresses did a marvellous job but were under pressure & could have done with more staff.

Lovely place, great food, gets booked up quickly so pre-book on popular nights almost essential. havent tried takeaway service yet, so cant comment on that.
