Description: WINNER OR THE GOOD FOOD GUIDE'S BEST RESTAURANT IN THE NORTH EAST 2016 Located in the cathedral city of Ripon, Lockwoods provides a relaxed place to enjoy brunch, lunch or dinner. We're about classic, seasonal cooking and our modern European menu focuses on flavour not geography, but always maintains a strong nod towards our Yorkshire roots. We use the best seasonal produce that we can find and source much of our produce locally, particularly in the summer months, when we use the heritage garden 200 yards from our front door. We also have a wide range of local and European beers and a great wine list (currently 25 bins). We have received many accolades for our food, service and atmosphere, including "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. We're a family run restaurant that has been established for over 10 years and happy to cater for groups, families, children, vegans, vegetarians.... and everyone in between. Put simply, we're a place that you'll want to come back to time and time again. AND IF IT'S NOT ON THE MENU - JUST ASK. Open Tuesday to Sunday Great value early bird menu 6-7 pm. Regular special events such as Call my Bluff Wine evening, Live jazz or our very popular tapas evening. Menus available for Children, Vegetarians and other dietary requirements, or just ask us and we'll cook it! Full disabled access throughout.

“A little over priced”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

The food was quite good, but not exceptional, most of the service was pretty good, the atmosphere was ok, althought the music was a little loud and not to our taste.
The choice of food was a little limited, there seemed to be a lot of risotto on the menu, I like risotto but my other half is not too keen. The Game terrine seemed to contain quite a lot of fatty bits and not being fat lovers it was not entirely to our liking. So would I go again, maybe, but I cannot not say I would dash back. I have paid less for better and when I have paid similar I have had much better and with more choice.

“"Fabulous as always"”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Arrived with minutes to spare for lunch last orders. We were made to feel welcome and given plenty of time to order. The food was great, as ever, the service very friendly and very reasonably priced for what you get. The staff always seem to go the extra mile to make sure you enjoy yourselves, Lockwoods's is definately one of our favourite places.

“A great meal with excellent service”
Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

We visited here for a birthday meal and were taken to a small table at the back by the bar. This meant we were close to the kitchen and a noisy bar - not the romantic atmosphere we were hoping for. However we asked to move into the main restaurant and the staff went out of their way to give us a perfect table in the window. We had a menu offer done through our B&B - The Old Coach House and got great value for money!

I had the seabass and my husband had the lamb - both we're delicious. We had a fab waiter who was perfectly attentive and very much deserved his tip for looking after us on a crazy Saturday evening service.

Fully recommend - great food in a very relaxed atmosphere.
