The Westwood offers modern British Food in a relaxed informal environment. Located in the grounds of Beverley’s former grade II listed Georgian courthouse, its modern, comfortable interior complements perfectly the classic features and charm of this historic building, and when the sun is out, there’s no better place for a meal than out on the terrace. Our aim is this, great food, a warm welcome and great service to match. We also believe in making the most of the seasons so our menu is constantly changing to bring you the best of locally sourced produce. The Westwood has focused on casual dining and delivered the highest of standards since opening in 2007, making it one of East Yorkshire's finest places to enjoy food! With the long term vision of a ‘local’ quality restaurant, Matthew, Michele and their team use high quality, locally sourced ingredients to serve up the best the region has to offer in innovative and classical ways.

I love The Westwood. We only go now and again. James (the manager) remembered last time we went in November what we had to drink. Nothing is too much trouble and the food is spot on. I always have the fillet steak. So if you have a special occasion coming up it’s highly recommended.

Lovely, as always and still my favourite place to eat!
Only feedback is that kids’ chocolate melt-in-the middle dessert has been replaced by another chocolate concoction that is a bit of an odd jumble - mine didn’t like it. They were looking forward to the Chocolate fondant and malteser ice-cream! Bring it back!! 😊

Food was tasty but massively overpriced. My Wagyu was tough and hard to cut even with the steak knife provided. The tuna tartare and scallop and chorizo starters where delicious.

The flow of the restaurant doesn’t really work.....upstairs for drinks then had to carry our drinks downstairs for our meal whilst passing waitresses carrying food upstairs.

Service was excellent and the staff incredibly helpful, attentive and pleasant.

Menu mains choice was a little disappointing....only fish, lamb or steak!

Had eaten an equally tasty meal in a nearby hotel restaurant the night before for a fraction of the price.

The food lacked, whilst well done, interest. One got the impression that one had been to too many restaurants just like it doing the same things in the same way, so this was more about maxing profit as the food. It needs to think more about customer experience. It's also desperately overpriced. £14.95 for 3 scallops - really?

Food was fabulous apart from the chips, most of which were burnt. Service was ok but at one point we were left waiting a very long time for our drinks. We were a table of 4 and only wanted 2 new drinks but 4 were brought. Only after asking a second time for them and then still waiting an age. Lovely setting though.

We had lunch at The Westwood restaurant and as always it delivered on all aspects of dining out.
The soup was creamy and tasty with delicious warm bread and the fish was cooked just right with an interesting Thai style relish with it.
The desserts were equally delicious and the meal was served with friendly and informed care and attention.
This restaurant always seems to give of its best and we love going which we do regularly.

We wanted to treat our good friends from Oxford to a special meal on their first visit to Beverley. The Westwood Restaurant did not disappoint and we all enjoyed a truly exceptional experience.
The food was superb especially the Wagyu beef and Fillet steak and we all loved the delicious cheese board! The service was fantastic! All the staff were very attentive, helpful and friendly without being intrusive. They made us feel very comfortable and at home and the ambiance in the restaurant was warm and inviting.

Went for lunch. Absolutely top drawer and very reasonably priced for the quality of food that comes out of that fantastic kitchen. We didn't opt for the fixed price lunch menu so my review is for the main menu. The servings are hearty for fine dining and I found myself having to leave half of the bread, and our side of scrummy crinkle cut chips (which were utterly delicious) were barely touched. I seriously felt like asking for a doggy bag but it's not that kind of place. The menu is beautifully put together by a very intelligent kitchen. It is reassuringly restricted on choice (my pet hate is a vast menu) so you know that every dish will have been afforded a huge amount of attention, and that the produce is spot-on. Every dish was faultless.! Service was utterly lovely. I truly wish it were closer to my home. Beverley is a delightful place, so next time when it is better weather we will come early, have a walk round and enjoy another amazing lunch

The Westwood is one of our favourite places to dine and we have never left disappointed. Our experience this time was a little different maybe because there was not a great deal to tempt us on the lunchtime menu.
What we chose was ok but not we felt up to their usual standard, especially the main course. Probably best to check the menu on line when booking. Having said all that we will most certainly return

Had set menu, good value, very enjoyable food that I wouldn’t usually have chosen. Good size portions.
Only issue I find is it gets quite difficult to hear friends because of background noise.
