    The food, service, ambience and location excellent. The only problem was a noisy mini hen party whose loud talking and laughing gave no consideration to other diners. Unfortunately the table of 5/6 was just beside us and the noise was intrusive. I am aware that there is little the restaurant staff can do about this but it does spoil the occasion.
