Just been back to the Willowgate since it re-opened after lock down. The whole experience hasn't changed - excellent in all areas, especially Customer Service. As usual the catering for my Coeliac wife ws spot on. Tables nicely socially distanced.

Lovely little place. Ambience was a little lacking due to Covid restrictions, but it was good to see all guidelines were followed. Food was excellent and service from the young waitress was first class!

The food and service were fantastic. Couldn't fault anything - except the guy on the next table who complained (unnecessarily in my opinion). Even then, the girl serving didn't charge him for his drinks. I'd definitely go again.

Potatoes were a bit tough to cut. Duck and a Chicken was lovely. Wine was good. Service good.

My wife and I went here for a wedding anniversary meal and it was delicious. We only managed two courses as we were stuffed. I would highly recommend the Willowgate Bistro.

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.

We had a great time! Very friendly welcome. Really impressive menu - Vegetarian and gluten-free menus were just as appealing as the general one. Everything we ate was delicious. I’ll definitely be back.
