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

Very happy to have found this little gem. Popped in for lunch with family. Great to see many different dietary requirements catered for here. I asked re the availability of gluten free options and a very friendly, knowledgeable staff member gave me quite a choice, said the chefs were more than happy to tweak dishes to accommodate GF wherever possible....

My friend and I visited the café recently after reading lots of good reviews on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately, we were rather disappointed with the food. We both chose vegetarian options - the hazelnut and mushroom lasagne and a daily special. Both were okay, but the lasagne seemed to lack both hazelnuts and mushrooms and tasted overwhelmingly of cheese and tomato.... More

Recently Gannets catered my husnband's 70th birthday party. The food, service and personal support could not have been better! Thank you, Joe, for making the evening perfect. I wish we lived nearer to Newark so that we could sample Gannets' delicious food more frequently.
