Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Newark would not be complete with out the institution that is Gannetts. From good coffee to good cake plus any number of tasty snacks.

Went to Gannets to try as never been there. Myself and my son went and I ordered two big breakfasts with two coffees. Price. £23. What we received was without doubt the most odd and disgusting breakfast I have ever had the displeasure of being...served. The breakfast. One sausage which was not bad. Two slices of bacon that could have been off a guinea pig, a large portion of mushrooms that tasted like tinned mushrooms (though this could have just been the horrible sauce they were boiled in, which was disgusting) poured onto a bread like bun, and one poached egg. I cannot imagine where they got their idea of a large full English breakfast, but this wasn't one of those and no warning was given that I would not receive what I believed I was ordering. Overall experience was bad enough for me to leave my first review ever. Would not recommend.More

Stopped for a quick lunch at this place our favourite cafe in Newark. We had vegetarian quiche with salads followed by coffee. It was all tasty, fresh and filling. It is a great place for quick food but can be busy.

Great little cafe - staff gave good service, the place was very clean and the breakfast was obviously made with quality ingredients a t a good price. If I was local I'd be a regular.

We often visit Gannets walk the dog and pop in for coffee cake brunch Sunday breakfast it’s one of our favourite places. It’s always excellent always busy and always consistent. Hence we keep coming back- unbeknown to the staff today was our wedding anniversary 15...years ago we had our reception at Cafe Blu a restaurant which used to be opposite. Today our day was made special by Beth a member of staff who always has a smile and is a consummate professional- she seems cool under pressure and today she went out of our way and it felt special to us. I think people forget to thanks people when it’s always good. So Thankyou Gannets and Beth for for a lovely lunch great service and going the extra mile- the left over pavlova didn’t go to waste😉🤣More

I want to start this review by saying I am usually a very fussy eater. I have alot of anxiety/stomach issues which makes choosing somewhere to eat a bit of a debate between me and my Mum. We stumbled upon this cafe purely out of...chance and from the outside it doesn't seem anything special...until you get inside. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. They had a variety of specials on the board and I chose homemade lasagna and garlic bread and my mum chose the quiche and salad. Portion sizes were hearty. The lasagna was definitely homemade, with a hint of rosemary and piping hot, the garlic bread was a very generous portion. Mums slice of quiche was also generous as was her 'side' salad which could well have been a dish on its own (she loved the it all). The good food was obviously the highlight but they also had a little secret extended outdoor eating area, it was glorious weather and it was like eating in a Secret Garden.More

Popped in for coffee and a cake during our morning stroll around Newark. The service was friendly, helpful and efficient. The coffee was tasty and hot. Being a Sunday I was not surprised the croissant was the previous days but it was warmed which made...up for it.More

Popped in for lunch on the way to the Leicester game. Went for the classic combo - filled potato skins with salad, followed by carrot cake and coffee! Amazing as ever. Fab daily specials, loads of veg and gluten free options all genuinely home made!!!...Best cafe anywhere, FACT!More

Had bad experience at one café, came here and they were reliably accommodating. I would walk miles for their cinnamon muffins, just can't get it anywhere else 😋. Great quality at wonderful prices.

Gannet’s cafe was a wonderful experience. The staff were super friendly. But the chocolate roulade was super scrumptious! Can’t recommend enough! You must visit if you are in Newark.

I stopped off here on a bikepacking trip to fuel up at lunch and it did not disappoint. Very popular, but not too long to wait for the food. I sat outside in the sun and kept an eye on my bike. Definitely recommend.
