As we don’t have any parking here at Willowgate Bistro we would like to let you know of somewhere that you can leave your car. We have parking very close by on the Market Street but if that is full you can always try the Eastgate car park, located about 5 minutes walk away. Alternatively you can use the car park outside the Co-op. They are both well lit and are down hill on the way home after your meal! 
We can also help to arrange a taxi if you would like us too just let us know. 
My wife and I recently spent a perfect evening here, whilst on a short break in Pickering. I cannot fault anything about the restaurant. The food, service and surroundings were all impeccable. It is a small, intimate place and I would recommend booking. I will definitely visit again, when in the area. 
Me and my wife just moved to Pickering a few weeks ago and we wanted to try every eating establishment around and make a regular one for ourselves. Willowgate Bistro is by far our favourite. We had a lovely 2 course meal. 
We enjoyed a really lovely meal after a day out in Whitby on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. The restaurant is family run and fairly small. The food is home made and there is great attention to detail. The French onion soup starter was very nice. The main dishes and shared dessert were tasty and well presented. High quality food
