Willowgate Bistro is our favourite restaurant in Pickering. Matthew, Jemma and the team there always put on a warm welcome and a great meal, and our latest visit, although under the constraints of Covid-19 precautions, did not disappoint. Beautifully cooked food, creatively presented. High quality ingredients, imaginatively combined in dishes that that tasted delicious. The place goes from strength to strength.
Excellent meal with fab service will definitely visit again.
