It was a freezing Friday lunchtime and the friendly welcome and hugely satisfying hot drinks and yummy food warmed us. There are lots of veggie options, and, thankfully, decent gluten free choices. My husband opted for a pork casserole which he said was very tasty, I plumped for the filled potato skins. Filling and delicious. Maybe the lettuce was a... More

The room not the food. We had scones, muffins and cake with coffees and they were all very good. A nice size coffee rather than the large cups with too much milk which places usually serve. Lovely place and friendly staff. Bit of a trek to the ladies which is on the second floor, but very clean and well looked... More

Nice little cafe with modern, cheerful decor and a good range of fresh, light food with a local twist. Friendly service and good tea.

Me, my wife and our baby daughter eat at Gannets today 15.12.14. I had Bangers, Mash and Onion Gravy.....absoloutly beautiful, and very reasonable at £7.50. My wife had Gannets Veg Quiche with all the salad trimmings, and with French dressing. 1 X pot of tea, 1 X coffee, 2 X Carrott cakes.... £25. No where in Newark is as good.

This is one of the nicest places that we have visited for a family lunch. We had four generations sitting down together and there was something on the menu for everybody. There were freshly prepared items on the chalkboard, and the display of desserts and cakes tempted some of us to really tuck in. They have a 'takeaway' service if... More

Asked to find a suitable venue for a school reunion, in Newark I thought of Gannets.It fulfilled the requirements of the group, being easy to find, accessible and providing a function room with seating for the party.The selection of food available more than catered for our needs.

Amongst the plethora of eateries in Newark town centre, Gannets stands out. Now living in Birmingham, my husband and I always eat there when we are in Newark and our recent visit on Saturday didn't disappoint. The filled potato skins, quiche and choice of salads are delicious and the fruit crumble is one of the best I've tasted. The staff... More

Called in for lunch. Hadn't been here for a while but food was just as good. Always enjoy quiche and salad. Cream tea really nice, fruit scone lovely but the size of the peach tart was very small. Staff always friendly and nice atmosphere. Lovely lunch. Licensed too so enjoyed a glass of wine and a beer.

I experienced lovely friendly staff, with delicious food and a cosy atmosphere to match. My partner was not so lucky. He was limited for choice as a vegan, and found it unhelpful that the woman behind the counter didn't know enough about the food to be able to answer his questions without going into the kitchen. As a result he... More

We have been here a few times which in itself says something I guess. The menu is limited but good, homemade and tasty. The method for ordering is what disappoints - like an old fashioned cafe with people standing around by tables waiting to claim one as it's vacated, then going to order their food. Another average place in Newark... More
