By far this is worth seeking out. The food and drinks are super affordable and the menu has so much choice. And all day coffee refils for £1.25 (drink as much as you like) Great.

Been several times recently, had steak day, curry day and fish days. Each time not disappointed. Be aware, it’s popular with families, but all seemed well behaved.

Easy to get served and order food even on Friday night - would recommend especially if you are seeing something at the Citadel as it's round the corner :)
