Quite a regular customer at Gannets. Overall the food is lovely, and the staff are all very pleasant. Lovely cakes, and mix and match salads. Nice little courtyard garden as well as nicely appointed rooms to sit and eat.

Often come here for lunch-they do a lovely salad with quiche but have plenty of other delicious sounding choices! There is seating outside in a small courtyard as well as upstairs. Cheerful and friendly staff!

This is an excellent place to meet your friends for a light lunch, and its good for informal business lunches. I always find that the prices are reasonable. The only complaint I could ever have, is that the menu does not really change very often. I've eaten here to many times to count and would almost eat here all the... More

Love Gannets for a Sat. Lunch treat when shopping in Newark. Recommend the Fabulous Carrot cake a great treat with a pot of Tea. Lots of lovely healthy options and gorgeous salad options. Comfortable seating and lots of papers to chill with.

I'm currently on a very restrictive diet - the low FODMAP diet - a treatment for IBS. It is not very well known and therefore can be difficult to cater for and makes eating out sometimes quite difficult. However, the staff could not have been nicer and more patient in helping me to find something that I was able to... More

Ever time we leave Gannets we agree that we should go there more often. Freshly preferred healthy delicious food, reasonably priced, friendly service. And you can choose to sit in a variety of different settings. It can get busy at lunch time at the weekends but that's hardly a surprise. I can highly recommend Gannets.

Excellent choice of food and drinks...all well cooked. Staff friendly.. Only downside in the two visits we made is that for some reason it is very noisy...sound reverberates around the rooms..like a tinny noise..possibly the tiled floors.

This is the second visit to gannets and just as nice as the first time. I had my new born baby with me, no problems getting round the table, sat in the back room to minimise disruption to other customers when my baby cried but no funny looks or ask to be quiet like some places. Had a vegetable quiche... More

I have been visiting Gannets for years but not reviewed before. This busy but relaxed cafe serves excellent hot and cold meals throughout the day. Try the quiche (usually a choice) and selection of interesting salads (as I invariably do), just under £8 with little likely to cost more. Everything from porridge to soups, baked potatoes and veg or meat... More

I used to have lunch here often when I lived in Newark so was looking forward to returning. Gannets didn't disappoint. The food was really tasty and I meant to see if they had a recipe book for sale! The salads don't seem to be as extensive as they used to be but that could be my memory - they... More
