As usual they offer great value good food and drink. Fairly quick service. However I thought the interior was a bit of a let down as it did not compliment this wonderful historic town.

We stopped off in Newark for lunch and visited Wetherspoons as there is a good choice on the menu and some meal deals include a drink so great value. Always seems to be busy but managed to find a table and the food order didn't...More

Although the menu looks extensive there is not much choice of food. For what you get the price is high even when you get a drink included. The food is not particularly tasty and not good quality.. There are many other pubs in Newark that...More
