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.

We booked for Sunday lunch and both had the beef. Probably the best beef we have ever eaten, served pink, as requested, it was so easy to cut and very flavoursome. Also great value for money as the price includes potatoes and vegetables. A great local restaurant with professional, friendly and attentive staff. Note to self - we must use it more often.

A very genuine, friendly reception as we were seated upstairs for a pre dinner drink. We perused the menu and were advised of the specials.
Fabulous service and excellent food. Very well presented and plenty of it!
We chose the Porterhouse steak and it was delicious, cooked just to our liking.
Definitely return and will be recommending to our family and friends.

We had a lovely evening. The food was delicious and interesting, portion size was just right, accompanied by a good wine recommend and finished off with the best pudding I’ve ever had in my life! Salted caramel choux bun - the choux was light and crisp; I’ve never tasted it like that before!! The filling was luscious and kept on giving caramelised hazelnuts until the last mouthful. Amazing. Thank you!

As a Michelin starred restaurant I expected this to be pricey and it was! I went for the fixed price and added potatoes and veg (minimum £3.95 per item). A nice but ordinary bottle of Sauvignon Blanc was £32. Food was fantastic and service was very good too. The a la carte is for serious foodies. Lovely for a special occasion but I can’t imagine justifying spending that much on a meal on a regular basis.

Unfortunately 3 out of the foursome had steak that was tough and one that was very rare when menu said it came med/rare as per menu
For a £200 + cost i don’t think I will be recommending to others which is a shame as it was recommended to us

This is the restaurant you must visit if you are in Beverley. Forget about the fancy Michelin Star restaurants that are very expensive, give very small portions. The Westwood is worthy of a Michelin star, and more as you get good portions and the food is just excellent. We had the Himalayan salt aged Porterhouse steak (1kg). It was fantastic.

Great food as usual. It is however becoming increasingly expensive, and we were seated by the bar for the first time, and it seemed incredibly noisy there for a Sunday lunchtime.

My Starter of duck salad was very good but my rib-eye steak wasn’t cooked as requested. Staff were very good and discrete about it and handled the issue professionally.

We love The Westwood. They always provide a enjoyable dining experience. This was a celebration for my sons 7th birthday and he was blown away, in particular he loved the bread and butter starter and breaded chicken. My husband said the steak was the best he has ever eaten, very memorable. I've always said the service here is as good if not better than Michelin star restaurants we visited. Looking forward to returning very soon, especially the Sunday lunch and magician event.

Gin menu is great & a good start
Food was lovely- pumpkin & parmesan soup with really good bread. Halibut in curry sauce really tasty. Service was good except for everytime our server came to table they said "sorry to interrupt" it was nice the first time but not necessary after that but I appreciated the politeness. Overall I've never been disappointed with my meal here. It was a nightmare to park but there was a special event at Sessions which is not the usual situation

A fantastic meal as always.
Our waitress was exemplary - she looked polished and was polite and attentive but not intrusive. All the staff were great.
The first drinks seemed a little rushed into the starter, the gin was expensive for what it was.
Florence and the machine is great but a bit angsty for dining.
The food was delicious with amazing flavours apart from a rather dry fondant dessert.
We had to leave the table which was fine for us but maybe timings could be thought out as we had booked a long time ago and it was a special occasion.
Overall, this is still one of the best places to eat in East Riding so keep it up.

Thank you.
