"We've just got a really young family and between the family and the business, we'd like to spend more time with our family. You get phone calls from the morning till midnight, it just doesn't run too well when it comes to raising a young family. 

"That said though, the business would do really well with a couple taking charge, like a partnership were one can do the cooking and the other front of house - that's what the business needs, it maybe just needs a bit of new blood," she said.
