We were just passing this restaurant last Saturday and decided to try it out, and we weren't disappointed. We were greeted at the door by a very charming and pleasant man, and he was able to squeeze us in even though they were going to be busy later. The menu had a good selection and we chose the early bird... More

Lockwood's fully deserves its high rating. We visited for a midweek lunch with three generations of the family and thoroughly enjoyed the tasty and well presented food and the friendly service. Well done.

We moved to the Ripon area almost 18 months ago and were taken to Lockwoods by a friend for the first time last night. We left saddened by the fact it has taken us so long to find it, Lockwoods is an excellent restaurant and we will definitely be returning. Everything about the restaurant is excellent. The staff are friendly,... More

Undoubtedly Ripon's best restaurant. Good food well presented is always a guarantee and their early bird 5-7 booking is particularly good value at £16.95. Attentive service and great atmosphere!

I found myself in Ripon after a lovely walk near by. Lockwood's came up as a place to try and so we did. After being seated in a chair which had been recovered but had a very strong frame with the wood in the back of my legs; I looked at the menu and decided on the risotto. It was... More

I came here with my partner on 28th January, and we both had a great experience. Not often do I see a menu and struggle to pick between multiple options, but this was the case here. The three servers were all friendly and attentive. The food was served promptly and was of a very high standard. Portion size isn't huge... 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.
