I was born in Newark and this has always been an inmpressive landmark in the town, just opposite the caste. When I last went here it was a Harry Ramsdens (over 30 years ago). The building still looks good but the restaurant has only improved...More

I didn't book the table it was a friends birthday and she picked here because she lives in Newark. The staff were a bit slow at serving because they were so busy.

Oh no that's a shame. Did you let them know because they couldn't do enough to help us when we went?

At Zizzi we like to do things a little differently. We don’t do over-complicated recipes or scrimpy portion sizes. We’re all about the well-chosen ingredients, simply put together to make exceptional Italian food.Situated in probably the most prominent location in Newark, 'The Ossington', Zizzi boasts great views of the castle and the River Trent. Having been the focal point of the town for centuries we even have our own ghost that can be seen floating around the basement.Dine al fresco with an outdoor dining area for sunny weather.
