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.

This is an excellent restaurant with superb quality food and service to match. The menu is varied enough to meet most tastes, both for starters and mains, with the sharing dishes, especially the 'A la Plancha' 'W' bone-in prime rib steak being mouthwateringly delicious. That combined with some very tempting deserts means you should leave both satisfied and full!
What is also excellent is that you are not hurried at all which makes for a very relaxing meal.
It is towards the very top end of what we would call 'value for money', although you can eat quite economically if you choose from the 'Prix Fixe' menu (only available Tuesday to Friday) and it is very limited in choice. Some of the sides are not good value, but that is being picky, for example 'Seasonal Vegetables' at £3.95 per serving turned out to be a small bowl of cabbage!
All in all, an excellent restaurant for a special occasion - would recommend, but bear in mind that it is extremely popular at weekends and needs booking well in advance!

First time visit and I was not disappointed. This was a business lunch and The Westwood provided an ideal setting. Service was great and the food fantastic. We all ordered steak and this along with the accompanying vegetables was tasty and well cooked. I will definitely be returning.

The restaurant was excellent, we turned up after booking through open table whom had told the restaurant the wrong date. Front of house was excellent with arranging for us to have a table which turned out to be the chefs table. We have been to the westwood before but after they way we where treated we will defiantly be going again but I will book direct with the restaurant.

We had made our reservation well in advance and were seated on the worst possible table immediately next to the entrance and in a draft, we complained it was cold and asked to be moved but the restaurant was so cold it made little difference in that the radiators were not on, the manager said it was because we were early, hardly an excuse! I had stated in my reservation that this was a birthday celebration and none of the staff took that up or asked me what we wanted which was very poor. As the restaurant was so cold and we were not made to feel welcome at all we left after our main course which for a double birthday celebration was not what I had planned. Suffice to say we won't be going again.

A restaurant of very high quality, but delivered in a relaxed, friendly way that encourages you to go back...again and again... Even though we are friends, at a point in the past we weren’t, and back then, we loved the place as much as we do now. X

As usual an excellent business lunch at Westwood.
My only suggestion for improvement is to reduce the volume of background music. Too intrusive,particularly if it isn’t one’s taste!

Overall enjoyed my experience at the Westwood, it’s a posh place to go to celebrate with other adults. The service is very good and can’t be faulted. The gin cocktails are also very good. The duck salad and soup main were extremely good. Mains we’re a little disappointing, the porchetta was far to salty and the juniper was over powering and the fish was average. It’s a good restaurant but over priced for the average mains.

Well prepared food, reasonable wine list which is varied, good service and the watchful presence of the 2 owners, one in the kitchen and one in the front of the house make this one of my favourite restaurants in the country.

Great welcome, service excellent warm and friendly. Had Sunday lunch, beef was delicious just a little disappointed with the roast potatoes, I like them crispy and they were a bit dry but overall a nice lunch.

Always resent having service charge added, it gets my hackles up every time and leaves me feeling uncomfortable which is a shame.

Disappointed in our visit Sunday for my husbands birthday lunch, staff polite and friendly, starter lovely, my fillet steak however which is asked to be cooked ‘medium’ was tough on the outside as though had been left on its edges on too high a heat making it dry the centre was pink but never experienced a tough fillet steak! The tables weee very close together and the atvrhe bar someone was constantly banging the coffee grinds out of the ports filter making it difficult to enjoy the experience. Also limited menu with lots of fish. I did not complain as didn’t get chance as waiter only asked my husband if his food was ok plus we weee right on time as limited child care.

Not currently on the menu (more the pity) the tarte tatin is the best dessert experienced anywhere in the known universe!
