Booked a table for two in here at 9pm on a saturday night, and we expected it to be busy - which it was. We also expected it to be a little noisy, however the din is such that even after moving our chairs next to each other rather than opposite, any kind of conversation had to be shouted.
We ordered house red wine and it was not good. My advice - pay an extra £4 for the next bottle up.
The food was very good - the scallops were very slightly overdone, but not devastatingly so, and went well with the black pudding and apple sauce. The beef carpaccio was the outstanding dish - possibly the best i have had in the UK. That said, i think this place is a tad overpriced at £11 for 4 medium-sized scallops, and £18 for a bottle of house red that was quite awful.
All in all, decent food, but definitely a no-no if you want an intimate meal for two or a relaxing meal and conversation with friends. I probably would go here again, but probably during the daytime when it is less loud.
