Reasonable prices and a locally based menu with something-for-everyone appeal have earned young-at-heart Lockwoods a loyal following. This stylish, convivial spot in the centre of Ripon works to an all-day menu that encompasses everything from sandwiches, soups, mezze boards and ‘piggy bits’ to burgers, pasta and risottos. Lashings of comfort can also be found in more complex dishes such as confit chicken and prune terrine with spring vegetable salad and wild garlic mayo, pork belly stuffed with chorizo and white beans, confit lamb shoulder with dhal and yoghurt or a standout dish of flavoursome aged rib-eye with béarnaise sauce and fat chips. Polish things off with banana and ginger sticky toffee pudding, Yorkshire honey parfait or spiced rhubarb crumble. Brunch and early-evening deals are also worth knowing about, while the excellent-value wine list offers a decent selection by the glass.
