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 our favourite restaurant and has been for since it opened. The food is always wonderful and locally sourced if possible. We always have a very special experience when we visit. The building is beautiful and we are very well looked after every time we have an evening there.

As ever, a wonderful experience. The Asparagus starter was sublime. The fillet steak with red wine jus was perfectly cooked and a bottle of Fleurie (not too heavy for a lunchtime drink) accompanied it extremely well.

It seems harsh to criticise but, as I pointed out, the ships were rather too crisp on the outside and also, as we were seated close to one of the music speakers, I had difficulty hearing the waiters. However, this will not stop us returning - we'll just ask for a table that is not too close to the sound.

We had a lovely meal, enjoyed every course and the happy anniversary gin and tonic macaroons were a love touch at the end.
The gnocchi were some of the best I’ve had outside Italy and the tuna sashimi is a lovely starter

Lovely setting very welcoming bar seating area could be more comfortable and two couple restaurant tables close to one another Food was excellent something for everyone Good wine but because the table close to each other the wine bucket was not at the side of the table so glass not always top up but will be definitely going again thank you team

The Westwood is fine dining without the formality. It always strikes the right note between a relaxed atmosphere and sharp but friendly service. The food was as good on this visit as it has been every time we have eaten here and all of our party of four were very happy with their choices of starters and mains. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the staff and from greeting to good bye we felt welcome and valued as customers. This place is not somewhere to go for a cheap night out, but the quality of the food, cocktails and experience justify the price. One of my favorite restaurants in the area.

Dislike the 10% “ discretionary” tip on the bill. Very arrogant I feel.
Triple cooked crinkle cut chips were no different to supermarket frozen.
Banquette seating is not welcoming or comfortable.
Interior decor is dull considering the history of the building.

Food of the highest quality. Friendly professional staff. Not the slightest bit 'stuffy' despite high end cost and menu. Not a cheap meal, but definitely worth every penny.

On the set menu, only two starters and two mains to chose whereas I think there have usually been three which just does give a little more choice.

Food/Service very good as always. My favourite restaurant in the area.

We had a family Sunday lunch there on 24/3/19. The food was excellent with portions just right and the quality was superb. I was particularly impressed with the service which was impeccable throughout. The general ambience was very good and we were barely aware of others despite the fact that it was fairly busy. I am looking forward to our next visit.

Service excellent. Food excellent .
A quiet corner table for two which was OK until the table adjacent was occupied
Tables are a little too close so when noisy (noiser than us) guests arrive next door is can be difficult to communicate without having to lean over the table. But that was the only disappointment on what was overall a very pleasant evening.
Maybe a choice of table could be offered?

Never been before didn’t like the entrance and having to go upstairs, chose our food from a very sparse choice, bit disappointed that we had to pay for everything even the bread and oil to begin your meal many other restaurants include this and it makes you feel welcome and that you will have a good night.
