There are plenty of cafes in Newark but this one takes some beating for light bites. Location is next to Civil War Museum. Spacious: clean: attractive: helpful staff: competitively priced food and drinks. A joy to visit. This is an excellent venue.

We arrived at the venue a bit too early and were asked to leave the cafe/bar area while they counted the tills out. This was a bit of a shock and left us feeling a little upset, so we left and went to another pub...More
