I follow a strict vegan diet and was very disappointed at the vegan lunch I had at Gannets. The restaurant advertises itself as catering for vegans but I had only one vegan choice for my meal - a vegetable balti. I chose to have the balti with a jacket potato in preference to rice. The balti was rather bland. I'm... More

This place were certainly a find. Three of us chose different salads and quiches and they were all excellent. All the food looked delicious and very fresh. The staff were friendly. We will return.

My friend and I visited for lunch. I had a great ploughman's with interesting salads, good quality pie and cheese. My friend had a tasty quiche. Finished off with lovely ginger cake. Reasonable price. Lots of choice if you wanted something more substantial.

Came across this place by chance. An excellent find. Huge choice on the menu for main meals, snacks, breakfast or simply delicious looking cakes. We chose lasagne with side salads for lunch. Both the meat and mushroom/hazelnut variants were excellent. with generous side salad. All items prepared and cooked on the premises using local ingredients/suppliers. Definitely a place to return...

Gannets has been a regular lunch place for me for several years now. Today's visit was disappointing. A small potato skin - greasy and dried up. One of the salads was hard butternut squash. I pointed out to the waitress that I was disappointed. No apology - just a comment 'well I like it very much'. I was very surprised... More

My partner and I visit Gannets on a fairly regular basis and have to say that they offer quality food, professional service and comfortable surroundings. We particularly enjoy breakfast there. Lunch can appear a little pricey but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for!
