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.

Had 2 visits in a week one for the early bird menu with friends and one for a Sunday brunch for a family party of 14. Both excellent food and service. Have been coming since it opened and as a chef myself have been consistently served a very high standard of both food and service. Thank you!

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.

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).

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!
