“Absolute perfection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Came here again for an early meal for two. We were welcomed by friendly and professional staff and shown to our table. I didn't know what to drink and asked the waitress to recommend a drink whilst i browsed the wonderful menus. Raspberry champagne cocktail! Amazing! Great choice! We ate from the summer garden menu and it was devine. Both me and my husband agreed the food came close to michelin star food! Never have i tasted sea trout quite like it! Nothing was too much trouble, food was perfect, service top notch and the whole evening was fantastic. Oh and the wine fantastic too! Went down a treat. Wouldn't change anything about the place. Keep going as you are. Exceptional team. Well done lockwoods!

“Good lunch spot in Ripon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Would like to have given this 3 and a half if I could.
This place is pretty much local for me and I must have passed it 100 times but have never gone in. Building work at home (no kitchen!) led us to find some lunch in Ripon. Not many decent places in the city for some reason.
Not particularly busy, nice décor, clean and roomy. We were told we could choose our table, and shown the specials board as well as the menu.
Husband said his burger wasn't particularly tasty despite the very good presentation. I fared better with my chicory, pear, walnut and blue cheese salad although I would have liked more blue cheese, and more substantial pieces of pear (they were wafer thin). Side dish of fries and aioli very good.
Food itself was plentiful, service quick and efficient. We'll probably return.

“Not enough effort put into the food or the service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We came as a family a couple of years ago and were impressed by the food. This time we came for Sunday brunch. The food was very disappointing. The hamburgers were poor - food this simple needs to excel with superb tasty meat, plenty of good salad and a crispy tasty bun. The hamburgers had none of this. My wife's mushroom soup tasted as though it had been made from a packet - very floury with no flavour. The banana and strawberry smoothie had mounds of sugar added to it - horrible. The service was sluggish, even though the place had only a handful of customers. As my wife said we always eat far better than this at home. She's right. We won't be back.
