There was a long queue at the main counter but Gannets always provides a fast and efficient service and I was served with very little waiting time. All the usual... More

I haven't been to Gannets for some time, but decided to pop in for some lunch whilst shopping in Newark. The Cappacino coffee was excellent and the mushroom and hazelnut lasagne good and very filling. I had a nice table overlooking the Newark Castle ruins and the lovely flower arrangements in the window.

You know the moment you enter that the food is good.The place buzzes, with a fair proportion of the clientele being regular locals .Recommendation in itself.

We stopped for a snack for lunch as we were waiting for my other half car to be fixed and we were pleasantly surprised by the range of food and cakes for sale! Will Deffo go again when visiting Newark!
