Our daughter took us to Newark whilst on holiday. Fabulous place but my goodness what a fabulous lunch. We had a platter for two but asked for an extra plate etc. All three of us had plenty to eat. Wonderful selection. We're visiting again soon...More

This is a very good cafe, with a very wide menu which should provide something for everyone. Good service, reasonable prices.

Delicious food - however a ham and cheese sandwich cost £7.50!! Amazing carrot cake and the salad was fresh and the dressing was delicious. Would recommend a visit however you might have to save up before hand! :-) x

The Old Theatre Deli is our most favourite coffee/food meet up spot. We visit most weeks to enjoy their gorgeous cakes and coffee . Or love the sharing platter with a glass of wine on a weekend lunch! Ruby our dog loves it here too...More
