Description: "A refreshing experience of traditional flavours in a relaxed contemporary setting"Lockwoods aims to celebrate the best of Ripon's rich Cathedral City history, and the outstanding natural beauty of the surrounding area, whilst challenging it into the future. This theme of traditional and contemporary side by side is reflected in our decor, our Modern British and European menu, our extensive wine list, and the art on our walls.We have completely refurbished the listed building, keeping original features such as the brick walls, wooden floors and skylight, while introducing relaxed seating, modern lighting, a state of the art kitchen and a zinc topped bar. We have received many accolades for our food, service and atmosphere, and were recently awarded "No 1 Family Run Restaurant in the UK" by The Times, recommended by The Independent, nominated for "Best Neighbourhood Restaurant" by Yorkshire Life, recognised in the Observer Food Awards, and listed in the Which Good Food Guides 2010 and 2011.We use the freshest ingredients from local producers and suppliers. Each month we hold special events around the themes of great food, wine and music. We look forward to welcoming you!

“Consistently great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

We've been coming to Lockwoods since it opened and have always enjoyed great food with great service. The menus are changed regularly and they have early bird menus at reduced prices. In fact, even though we've now moved away from the area, we still make a point of coming back to visit when we can. Can't recommend it highly enough.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Very pleasant surroundings, a short stroll from the square in the centre of Ripon. very friendly and helpful staff.
Wonderful varied menu plenty of veggie options and they even produced a Vegan Menu for my wife.
Food was imaginative and very tasty, good selection of wines and tempting desserts.
They are closed on Mondays (as we found on a previous trip to Ripon, but well worth a return visit).

“Lockwoods - What a pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We had a trip out to Ripon yesterday and stumbled upon Lockwoods. A nice bistro type eatery. We haven't eaten there before (don't know why?) and we very pleasantly surprised. Nice polite staff, excellent menu and very reasonably priced. Next time we have a drive out to Ripon - we know where we are eating!
