On a shopping trip to Newark my daughter and I decided to have lunch at Rushtons bistro. I have walked past numerous times but always thought it looked a bit too up market and expensive for a quick lunch. The food was delicious. The best lamb cutlets I have ever tasted. The service was spot on. Both manager and waiting... More

A mature couple, we had a small local wedding followed by lunch in the comfortable private dining room. The service was friendly and attentive, the food delicious as usual. Thank you Steve and all the team.

Excellent value for the price, the venison carpaccio,... More

A pretentious restaurant. The food sounded good, the reality it was served cold, some orders forgotten which meant people waiting. The waitresses were pleasant, unlike the manager. There are far better restaurants in Newark and the surrounding villages.

What a dreadful review. I would really like you to help me remember when you came in. Perhaps you could call me and we can discuss and try to make amends 01636 605214. Regards Steve More

I can heartily recommend No 42, whether you are a couple, family or with friends. Intimate enough for two, spacious enough for more. Friendly service, with a smile, without being intrusive. Excellent food, presented beautifully, and to specification (in our case, no garlic) - tasty and well proportioned. Scallops great, vension/duck/guinea fowl all smashing, and desserts to die for. And... More

Once again a fantastic meal at a great price. I visited with my Wife and youngest Daughter, we all had the Sunday Roast followed by Sticky Toffee Pudding, @ £12.95. Staff are very polite and chatty, I cannot believe this place is not busier.

One of the real genuine pubs where You could find a cosy corner in one of the many rooms to sit in. Very good homecooked food. A bit mor fancy choices than most pubs - which is good! Gives You an alternative.

Visited with the husband for Steak Night. Fantastic fillet steak cooked to perfection, served with a glass of red wine, followed by choice of a great range of desserts. So good that I've booked to take my (particularly fussy) mum for Steak Night just before Mother's Day!!
