We say…

So! Bar and Eats in Ripon is the newest addition to the independently owned So! restaurant family. Located on Old Market Square, next to the 300-year old Obelisk, it offers a modern taste of Britain in the beautifully historic town. Nearby highlights include Ripon Cathedral, and Ripon Spa Gardens and Fountains Abbey.

The journey of So! began as a single bar and restaurant in Harrogate. Its ‘no frills’ attitude and thoughtful menu was met with critical acclaim, allowing the company to expand to Knaresborough, and now Ripon. It caters to all sorts of tastes, such as the ‘sloppy gonzales scoobie’, a flour tortilla filled with chilli beef, red onion and cheese for those after a bit of a kick. The platters are also perfect for families looking to try something different.  The lunch menu  has a huge range of burgers and sandwiches, the latter of which won the best sandwich offer at the 2013 National Pub Food Challenge. There really is something for everyone, even those looking for a light bite: an a la carte menu is also available.

It is not just the cuisine and drinks which keep people returning, the strong focus on making the customer feel relaxed and at home  also makes sure every customer leaves with nothing but a positive vibe. The emphasis on it being a bar and not a restaurant furthers the informal but helpful service, putting those that visit at ease as well as eager to come back again. With a small al fresco area too, you can make the most of the sun whilst still taking advantage of the brilliant all day menu offers and delicious drinks.

Whether you fancy a drink and a light snack, a full course dinner, or you are simply looking for a place to unwind while you’re waiting for the Obelisk Hornblower to sound at nine o’clock, there is no place better than So! Bar and Eats Ripon, so book your place today!
