    Hi Andrew, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We're really pleased to see you enjoyed the food and the service, but we're sorry about the draught from upstairs! Glad that when we relocated you though it was much better. We hope to see you again soon and that you enjoyed the show! Kind regards Team Fountain House
