We recently had our afternoon wedding reception in the bistro at Gannets. And it was perfect, a small gathering of close family and friends enjoyed a vintage style afternoon tea. Divine sandwiches and cakes and the team at Gannets couldnt do enough to help us enjoy our special day. Kate even took time to have a coffee and soothe my... More

Just happened to be in Newark for a few hours whilst waiting for my car to be serviced and found this delightful eatery just opposite the Castle Park. Had lunch in the little garden yard area and thought the place had loads of character. The food was all prepared on site with really lovely salad selections and wonderful cakes and... More

I took my mother here while on a day trip to Newark, after someone exiting Garrett's remarked on the excellent food. I was not disappointed. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was to a very good standard with a great many options, and several for vegetarians or vegans, including gluten-free items (I loved the gluten free muffin). There's... More

My partner, my friend and I had a lovely lunch today at Gannets. We loved the décor, especially the pretty little courtyard, and the food was very tasty. Clearly a place where attention, care and love are key ingredients! Thank you very much!

Called here for lunch yesterday (Bank Holiday Monday) it was very busy which is always a good sign. We managed to get a table upstairs (the room was a little dark but far quieter and less busy than downstairs) and ordered our food at the counter which gave the opportunity to see what was available. I had the vegetable quiche... More

The seating is a bit tight but the food is OK. It is not overwhelmingly imaginative but well cooked.

Was taken here by friends for lunch on Saturday. They had warned us that it would be busy but that it was worth it. They were right. On arrival we were told that there was a wait for a table but that they would seat us as soon as possible. We waited about 4 or 5 minutes for a table... More

Just enjoyed a wonderful Mother's Day lunch at the bistrot situated upstairs at Gannets. A very warm welcome was followed by excellent food, lovely surroundings and attentive caring staff. Also received a complimentary posie of beautiful flowers which was a lovely touch. Would recommend both the day cafe or bistrot to anyone. Thank you for making my day special.

My partner and I visited here for lunch as we were passing by. We very much enjoyed the food and felt that it was good quality and reasonably priced. The surroundings were pleasant as were the staff. The only negative is that it wasn't table service and I don't really like getting up and standing in a queue but that's... More
