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.

The fish of the day is always great- quite a limited menu but always very well cooked and with interesting twists. I love going there and always enjoy it

The food was excellent but rather expensive - I don't like having to pay extra for vegetable's which should come as part of the dish. I did find the ambience to do rather disappointing as this was our first visit we didn't know where the entrance was as it wasn't very clear and there wasn't any clear reception area. We were led upstairs to the small bar which was empty and lacking in atmosphere. We had to go back downstairs to the restaurant and we were sat in a small side room with frosted glass windows which was disappointing as it was a lovely sunny day - the blinds were also closed soon after our arrival. The restaurant was totally lacking in atmosphere as we were the only couple in the 'alcove'. The staff were very pleasant but I do think that they need to get a 'uniform' sorted out as I don't think that having paid over £100 for lunch being served by people in jeans is acceptable. Overall we were both disappointed and it certainly wasn't anything special ..

Took my husband for his birthday meal, he's been wanting to go for some time and we were not disappointed. Service was absolutely excellent from the moment we walked in. Good choice of seasonal food, extensive wine list and good amenities. Only slight thing that let the experience down for us was the group of rather drunk diners next to us who were rather noisy but this was no fault of the restaurant, it was a friday night after all. We will be going back again soon!

We enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at The Westwood with delicious food in relaxed surroundings and very friendly service. Highlights included crispy duck salad, perfectly cooked venison, truffle mash and two perfect desserts with Hungarian dessert wine. The only slightly downside was rather bland mackerel which my husband chose and he does enjoy big flavours. My stone bass was well matched with mushrooms, chicken jus and silky Jerusalem artichoke puree. We were very touched by the thoughtful addition of anniversary macaroons at the end of our meal

It wasn’t a special occasion as we just fancied something different to treat ourselves and I was pleasantly surprised with both the food and hospitality as I had never attended The Westwood before but had been to a lot of restaurants in London. I would definitely recommend The Westwood to any person visiting Beverley for the first time.

The Westwood is a high quality establishment with an interesting menu and great service. The only drawback on this most recent visit was the quality of the steak. We tend to choose the Westwood for special occasions because their steaks are normally excellent but I was disappointed by the fact the meat was chewy and not nearly as tender as usual. I was also not impressed by the special dessert - tiramisu. It was a little too wet for my taste.
Everything else was first rate.

Went to the resturant for a special occassion. We are not from the local area but it was worth the organisation.
It was a great experience from the start. I would definitely return. The food was spot on. The menu is not extensive but may be why the food was great as they do not dilute the quality with an extensive menu. Well done westwards

Superb service, amazing food (both vegetarian and non-vegetarian). The wine list is also impressive.
Not cheap, but worth it at weekends for special occasions, and they also have a cheaper mid-week set menu which is more reasonably priced.
Well worth a visit!

Fabulous Sunday Lunch with all the family for my Mums birthday. The best roast I’ve had in a long time, it was excellent.
The staff as always were superb.
My only criticism would be they didn’t have any non dairy milk for coffee.

First and foremost, I must say the food we ate at the Westwood was first class, we both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Particular highlights were the crispy duck salad starter and steak main course.
I think the only down side was how close the tables are to one another, when the couple on the table next to us arrived, it felt like they were sat with us. Other quality restaurants in the area don’t feel as hemmed in as this does. This doesn’t detract from the quality of the food though.

We chose the Westwood for a long overdue celebration after a recommendation from a friend. The decor and ambience of the restaurant is welcoming and relaxed. Service was a little slow at first but picked up and our waitress did apologise and this was immediately rectified. We chose scallops to start of which we both agreed were excellent. I had the rib eye and my wife had the fillet steak. Both were fantastic. The wine menu was comprehensive and contained some fantastic options. We would definitely return to the Westwood.
