There are two Steves: Kitchen Steve and Front-of-House Steve. Front-of-House Steve welcomed us and showed us to our seats. The feast started gently with prawns in a crème fraiche dressing. This was followed by a tasty piece of salmon and a glass of NZ Sauvignon Blanc. We have drunk a fair bit of Sauvignon Blanc over the years, but this... More

With friends visiting, one from USA we wanted a quality dining experience and Rushtons exceeded our expectations, even with prior good reviews. Easy to book, on arrival very welcoming and a comfortable table with space around. Very good choice on menu, labelled for gluten and vegetarian and reacted well to a specific allergen problem. Good portions of well presented delicious... More

The service is always good, and if, for example, we find the background music too loud or not to our taste, it is quickly adjusted. The menu is quite comprehensive and changes fairly often. The food itself, prepared by chef Steve is always excellent, well presented and reasonably priced. Parking nearby is possible in the evening, but be careful not... More

Fabulous evening in the private dining room of No.42 (formerly known as Rushton's). Delicious food & exceptional hosting by Steve and his Team made a fantastic and special night even more memorable. We had 8 in our group, but the room would comfortably accommodate 10. Brilliant all-round experience at a very reasonable price. We will certainly be back.

Searched on-line, found this gem of a place - think it's now called 42. Great welcome from Steve, good menu range, good wine, excellent food. French 'ambiance' and lots of splendid artwork. So pleased to have found it. We'll definitely be back!

Newark is a nice town it has a castle, a new museum featuring the civil war . Its town center is a mixture of period properties dating from various ages and on the whole quite unspoiled unlike so many others places We occasionally drive over from Sheffield and have been visiting this restaurant for years . Its standards dropped a... More

It went though a bad patch, but with new management Rushton's has certainly got back to being the very good restaurant that we used to expect. The winter menu is very good but so are the daily specials, which are imaginative additions. The fried pigeon breasts and the nicely marinated salmon gave the meal a great start. For the main...

Do you know, sometimes when you walk into a eatery you just feel at home, even when empty some places have a great feel that seams to radiate to every corner of every room, you can't quite put your finger on the centre of the energy, it's engrained into the fabric of the building, and the staff carry it with...
