Second café arrives in time for Gannets' 40th anniversary
A popular Newark café is marking its 40th anniversary by opening in a second venue in the town.
Gannets, which already has a café on Castlegate in the town centre, is to open another on the outskirts of the town, where 3,000 homes are being built.
Gannets Middlebeck will be in the heart of the growing community south of the town, and is expected to open its doors to the public in October.
The new venue comes as Gannets celebrates its 40th year in Newark.
Gannets Middlebeck is part of developer Urban & Civic’s plans to create a community hub at the gateway of Middlebeck, which in the future will also feature shops and other amenities.
The café’s menu will include home-made breakfast and lunch dishes, as well as sweets, a range of daily specials, plus gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options. All items will be available to take away.
The café will have a contemporary, urban design, and seat about 30 diners.
Johanne Thomas, of communities and partnerships for Urban & Civic said: “We are delighted to welcome Gannets, a much-loved, well-established venue, which shares our approach to quality.
“We are certain Gannets will become a focal point of Middlebeck’s growing community, and the wider Newark area.”
Neil Stevens, owner of Gannets, said: “As a family-run business, we are passionate about offering our guests the very best experience with every visit, and will serve residents a fantastic selection of fresh, homemade dishes with a smile.
“As we are celebrating our 40th year, opening a new venue in Middlebeck is the perfect way to mark the occasion.
“We are very much looking forward to becoming part of the new community as it continues to grow and flourish.”
