Consistantly good!

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!

Been visiting Gannets for over 30 years and sad to say since Hilary sold/left we have become less enchanted. Recent visits have found us disappointed in the (standard menu) potato skins - left to get too dry - and then recently the plates seem to have "shrunk" so portions are smaller. With so much competition in Newark I hope they... More

Overall a very good experience. We visited Gannets by chance on a motorcycle trip to Wales. The food was great with a nice helping of salad. The "legendary carrot cake" was very good. They even let us sit by the window so that we could watch over our bikes.

The food was good, but the self- service aspect looked dangerous. We were seated upstairs (not for the elderly) The food had to be collected from downstairs, but our waitress did help us with that. It is a place worth visiting for the food and the ambience

Me and my friend went in for dinner It was so expensive we paid £5.25 for two very small tasteless scones with a cup of tea with a small pot of jam and cream and the quince was very strange just egg filling then a thin layer of stuff on top which was again tasteless.

This is a clean, bright and relaxed little establishment just out of the immediate centre of Newark; one I visit every time I am in the town, a convenient meeting place midway between Grimsby and Warwickshire for my friend and I to meet. Quite a little oasis of calm whether for a quick coffee or a lunch, with newspapers available... More

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.
