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.

Friendly, attentive staff gave us a wonderful welcome to The Westwood Restaurant. We felt safe, having had our temperature taking on arrival by staff wearing masks and quickly taken to our reserved table. We ordered drinks while considering the super menu and, once we had decided what to have for lunch, our food order was quickly taken.
The soup was amazing! The cheese straw was superb! The fish dish was so full of flavour and the warm sauce fantastic! The chocolate dessert, with boozy brambles and figs, was bursting with so many wonderful tastes and textures....just perfect.
We enjoyed a really wonderful lunch at The Westwood. The food was superb. We felt safe and at ease. We felt cared for by the attentive staff but not fussed over. We enjoyed each others company and it was a perfect way in which to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary.

Absolutely delicious food as always. Other than wearing our mask between movement around the restaurant it didn't feel like we were under such restrictions.
The staff were lovely and the food and wine exceptional. Love this restaurant.

This was only our second visit to the Westwood but it was as exceptional as the first and we're looking forward to our next visit.... Boris permitting! All our family's tastes from the simple to the exotic and the vegetarian were deliciously catered for. We felt safe and cared for.

Having had some excellent meals at the Westwood we were very disappointed with the quality of the meal. The steaks were very tough and chewy. We brought this to the attention of the waiting staff who provided 4 Complimentary macaroons which we felt was not a satisfactory outcome. Very disappointing given the price and high standards of the Westwood .

First rate. 2nd visit. Will return again.
Shared olives and excellent bread.
My wife’s porchetta was lucious. Rich slow cooked pork. I will be having this next time❗️Sea bream special for me. Large fillet, skin crisped with a smooth sardine and tomato purée. Very original and quite delicious. Accompanied by 2 glasses of Pecorino - went well with both dishes. Too full for pudding but a double espresso and cappuccino were as good as we’ve had (Lavazza). 👍😃

Could not fault a thing with the food - superb service. Pointed out a slight chip in the glass and it was instantly removed and replaced with a new fresh glass and drink and an apology made. Highly recommended

Visiting here is always a treat for us on a birthday, anniversary, etc. Mainly due to the reputation and food standard. Food is always great but there are two things that I don't like:
Firstly, the 10% service charge is automatically added to every item / overall bill. We always leave a tip but to have it added on automatically winds me up, and when you ask for it not to be added automatically it is quite clear that the staff don't like the request.
Secondly, for such a high level restaurant, we don't like to see the waiting staff in jeans and a couple also had trainers on. It lowers the standard. I know it's long hours on your feet but other classy restaurant staff manage to have staff in trousers skirts and shoes.
