Perfect for lunch, excellent, friendly service and delicious food. Incredibly busy which just proves how popular it must be with locals. Our first visit to Newark en route to Leeds, we were enchanted.

Gannets is a precious little jewel on Castle Gate. A beautiful little cafe/bistro with healthy home cooked foods served by bright and engaging staff. Great material and personal service from a team who take pride in producing quality food. Lovely breakfasts and lunches.
