Diners say eating out can be too noisy

Noise levels in some restaurants are so high, that it can be like eating next to a lawnmower - according to a new study.

The charity 'Action on Hearing Loss' says many people are turning to takeaways because they say dining out can be too noisy. AHL says not being able to hear conversations can be isolating.

But now, as Kevin Ashford reports, a firm from West Kingsdown near Sevenoaks may have a recipe for a quieter meal.
