We visit Ripon and chose this place after the good reviews we saw in TripAdvisor. The place itself looks stunning, with comfortable sofas and a lot of light. The menu is a fusion of Mediterranean/European dishes. I ordered one of the specials, hanger, a cut...More

Nipped into Lockwoods for a quick brunch. I loved the decor (not been for many years so it's all updated since I last visited) some really nice little secluded snug corners mixed amongst dining tables. It was a mid week lunch and most tables were...More

Have to admit we use Lockwoods regularly living only 10mins away and we never end up being other than "knocked out" by the food, service and ambiance. This lunchtime we called and my wife had the hanger steak special and it was done to absolute...More

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.
