    Excellent fine dining experience!

    I was very impressed with this deal. Only £14.95 for 2 courses and a glass of wine. I would say the quality of the food is well above average. The crispy egg with black pudding for starter was very tasty and the pulled pork burger was very good. The crayfish and mango salad also looked particularly good, and salads came either as a starter or main. The staff were very friendly and attentive and there was a nice relaxed atmosphere in this rather grand setting. I would definitely go back to Citation.

    A lovely afternoon out

    I've been to Citation on a few occasions now and it never fails. I can't see past it for value for money and quality of food. In some establishments, you feel like you're being treated differently when you're on a deal but not in Citation. The attentiveness of the staff is second to none, they've got it spot on,our waitress was lovely and pleasant, explaining how the deal worked and leaving us to choose our meal. I had the chicken and ham hough terrine with the homemade piccalilli and my friend the free range egg and black pudding, both were divine, for main course we had the fish and chips, again wonderful and cooked to perfection (the thick hand cut chips were the business!). The house red we had along with our meal, was so good we treated ourselves to another glass (we would have had a bottle, but we were off to a gin tasting and thought it a better idea to just have another glass). We had such a lovely afternoon, in beautiful surroundings, it's hard to believe you can get such nice food for what we paid (£14.95 for 2 courses), take a bow Citation.
