I cannot rate the food here as I have never been but I wanted to publicly thank the staff for their help in getting a gift voucher across town on the day before Christmas Eve. It had been ordered in plenty of time but had somehow gone astray in the post. Not a problem to the lovely people here as... More

Excellent food and service. Everything is freshly prepared and very tasty and there is a very good wine list. I am a regular and have never had a bad experience over the many years I have been frequenting this restaurant. I would highly recommend Lockwoods to anyone, from just a coffee to a full meal. Well worth a visit.

This used to be a gastromic jewel in an old fashioned market town. The lunchtime menus were light delicious and beautifully served. But went last night with 2 friends, and for the 2nd time in a month, the meal was disappointing. Sharing board and camberbert were delicious, but our friends burger was badly overcooked, the king prawn kebabs had a... More

We decided to dine here after excellent recommendations from the guest house we were staying at. We weren't disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was of high standard too. I chose the sea bass which was amazing. This is our first visit here and to Ripon and it won't be our last. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Unexpectedly stylish premises nestling among traditional Ripon retail premises and inevitable charity shops, further than ideal from a car park. Very welcoming greeter and drinks waiter, good table. Excellent Lockwoods Bloody Mary although I must remember to request a little less ice next time. We both enjoyed an Egg Benedict and an Egg Royale each, both were delicious beautifully cooked...

Instead of having a dinner disco in the North East for christmas, we opted this year for a weekend away in Ripon and after scouring Tripadvisor chose Wetherspoons hotel and Lockwoods restaurant.... Good move on both accounts... I booked Lockwoods well in advance and kept in touch for confirmation by emails. We had a fabulous night and a totally luscious... More

We visited on Christmas Eve after the Carol Service and were met by a great atmosphere and excellent service. What an asset Lockwoods is for Ripon where you can rely on consistent standards.

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.
