For many years Rushton's had an excellent and well-deserved reputation. Then until quite recently, the business approach seemed to be not at all customer orientated - indeed it could be quite rude. Now I am pleased to say that has gone and things have got back to where they were before. The service is very friendly, even cheerful, and responsive.... More

Last Saturday the whole family celebrated my mum's 60th birthday at Rushton's. We hired a private room which is located upstairs away from the main restaurant. I've been to Rushton's in the past and the food never disappoints. Ever dish was fantastic. The staff and service was brilliant. Every request we made was dealt with and they had a friendly... More

Popped in for lunch whilst visiting Newark to see elderly father. The fixed price lunch was very good value . The food was well cooked, well presented and very tasty. Service was attentive but not over the top. A very good find .

We have been before but this place is now under new management. We arrived to a pleasantly busy restaurant on a Saturday night. There was a warm welcome and a lovely atmosphere. We decided not to drink in the lounge pre-dinner but it looked comfortable and inviting. Our table was ready but unset, which seemed strange. We ordered drinks and... More

Went as a couple for a treat before the theatre on a Saturday night We were greated well and shown to our table. Drinks arrived quickly along with a nice taster of tomatoes, peanuts and pumpkin seeds. The two young ladies who served us were polite and efficient. The big disappointment was the main course. We both had the grilled... More

It may be a coincidence but it seems that the change of manager has got it back to its best. The food was just great: the pheasant and the rabbit stew were about the best we have ever had. The wild mushroom omelette was also very good as was the cheese board. Look for the daily specials, which are excellent... More

Have not been here for years but while out for the evening decided to give it a go. Lovely food-I had steak and my husband had pigeon breast starter and pheasant main. All was delicious served with fresh vegetables. Their recommended wine was lovely and the atmosphere relaxed and welcoming. Service was friendly, unobtrusive and made us feel valued as... More

I have eaten twice in Rushton’s in the last two months and both times it was excellent. Newark has a lot of choice when looking for somewhere to eat. My favourites have been Waters Edge or the Ram. But Rushton’s is a league above everywhere I’ve eaten in Newark in terms of quality of food, originality of menu and service.... More
