Food was excellent but it gets very very busy on a Saturday evening and the tables are very close together. All this makes for an extremely noisy and rather cramped eating experience. Against this, the food and service is excellent. The restaurant is extremely clean, although, the gents loo could do with a deep clean. All in all I would go again ☺
