"Let's pop in here for a coffee" we said, soon after arriving for our day in Newark. The coffee was good, but more importantly, while queueing to order it, I saw dishes already set out for lunch and some early birds choosing delicious-looking meals at the counter. So an hour or so after our coffee stop, we were back for... More

A very busy restaurant, but we were served quickly. It was difficult to choose from the many choices listed all over the walls. Everything was fresh and delicious. I thought the tart I had was one of the nicest I have ever had. The only drawback for me was that the toilets are upstairs. After trudging slowly up to the... More

I'm a regular visitor to Gannets. The food is lovely, especially the cakes and puddings. They serve real leaf tea. It's not the cheapest place but the price reflects the quality of the food.

Two hungry people arrived for breakfast after a three hour drive on the way to Gunby estate. Delightful Town of Newark upon Trent, easy to park near the restaurant in the main street(parking free for 1 hour). Friendly welcome, very good hearty breakfast for two hungry 'Gannets'.

Popped in for a late lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The menu was varied and enticing. I went for the spicy meatballs and pasta which was fresh, tasty and quickly served. There was also a very nice choice of cakes and puds, many home made. The staff were very friendly and polite and the place was very clean throughout. Prices... More

Last minute decision to have a wander around Newark. Doesn't matter how many places to eat we see we always have to visit Gannets. Why? Because we are guaranteed something delicious to eat! Always a good choice of daily specials alongside a good regular menu. Lots of vegetarian options as well as a few meat dishes too. We had the... More

Have eaten here many times in the past - the food is fantastic, and staff are always very friendly and accomodating. The staff were very attentive and made myself, my husband and our two young children feel welcome today. Food as usual was of a high standard. Would definitely recomend this place and will be returning next time we come... More

Lovely cafe/bistrot opposite the Castle.. always busy but enough room to spread out into the conservatory and upstairs, which is full of atmosphere. Have eaten breakfast/brunch here recently, which offers a wide choice of tasty food and a special daily breakfast deal for around £6/7... and lunch with friends, and as I'm mostly veggie it suits me very well with...
