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

This place has a great reputation among locals, and it’s a lovely place to visit. The portions are big, the food is tasty and wholesome, and you really feel like you’re eating local produce. Well worth a meal.

Dined early doors on a Saturday evening. Staff were friendly and professional. Nice atmosphere. I enjoyed the bacon chop, my wife enjoyed the chicken supreme. They offer a good choice of white wines.
