We say…

Situated in the historic town of Newark, The Ram Bar and Brasserie has always been a place to dine and enjoy good company: from its 15th century origins as a coaching inn to its 18th century Georgian renovation that still stands today, The Ram has been lovingly rejuvenated and has evolved over the years into a gorgeously refined dining setting. Close to Newark Castle and the Town Hall, it's a picturesque venue that will charm and delight whether you're taking an elegant afternoon tea or a relaxed evening meal. 

This bar and brasserie has the air of a Georgian coaching inn yet has a modern elegance to its interior: plush seating, grand chandeliers and wine racks lining the walls create a grand ambience, yet the restaurant still remains a relaxed and pleasant place to dine and drink. 

Just like The Ram's interior, the food blends the traditional with the modern; the menu is wholesome yet stylish. Start with the pan-fried duck egg with asparagus, hollandaise and watercress, or the shredded duck pancakes with plum sauce, chilli and coriander. For mains, the steamed mussels with Thai-infused spices and lime roti are sure to impress, as well as the favourite Ram burger which features 8oz of prime minced beef, air-dried smoked bacon, Lincolnshire poacher cheese and Bloody Mary mayonnaise, served with triple-cooked chips. Make sure you save some room for dessert: the chocolate fondant with peanut brittle, caramelised bananas and salted caramel is the definition of heavenly! There's also a Sunday lunch menu available as well as an early bird menu: bring the family for a relaxed meal, any time of the day and any day of the week!

If you're after classic dining in a heritage setting, that's nevertheless as elegant as it is historic, The Ram Bar and Brasserie is the place to be. With a delicious menu that's sure to impress, it's the perfect date night and family get-together setting
