A pretentious restaurant. The food sounded good, the reality it was served cold, some orders forgotten which meant people waiting. The waitresses were pleasant, unlike the manager. There are far better restaurants in Newark and the surrounding villages.

I can heartily recommend No 42, whether you are a couple, family or with friends. Intimate enough for two, spacious enough for more. Friendly service, with a smile, without being intrusive. Excellent food, presented beautifully, and to specification (in our case, no garlic) - tasty...More
