Story. Experience. Finest Cut.
It was the peak of Summer 2019 and 6 months after coming to visit the venue for the first time, we received a call from the estate agents to say the property was available again after a deal had fallen through. Do we? Don’t we?... by 5pm that same evening a deposit was put down and the LOMO dream began.
Long term best mates DG and JM picked up the keys on September 4th 2019 and by November 29th 2019, LOMO Bar & Grill opened its doors for the first time replacing previous restaurant, Rigsbys Piano Café.
There’s been many ups and downs, twists and turns since then, including a global pandemic which saw us shut our doors for 4 months, only 3 months after opening. In this time, it gave us the opportunity to look back and pinpoint areas of weakness. After days of menu development, working our way through multiple butchers and suppliers we found exactly what we were looking for. Nestled near the top of Sutton Bank in the North York Moors National Park, the Ashbridge family supply all of our beef here at LOMO Bar & Grill.
Traditionally, eating steak at a restaurant was always for special occasions and in our opinion, usually hit and miss. Our vision was and still is to offer incredible cuts of beef, available to everyone.
Although we have a huge passion for high quality steak, the vision for LOMO wasn’t purely about the food. We wanted to create a unique dining experience like no other within the local area. Somewhere where you could go and enjoy food at a high-quality standard, whilst enjoying DJs, Saxx players, Live Singers and more.
The finest cuts of meat available to all, along with a unique energetic vibe is where we are now and where we firmly hope to stay.
From the moment you enter LOMO via the floral entrance your experience begins. Our bright, colourful and vibrant garden featuring our Instagramable bench swing is just the start of what’s to come.

Friday and Saturday evenings are where LOMO really comes to life featuring resident DJ’s spinning IBIZA soul house and feel good classics. The Saturday Superclub has proven to become a real success. Not only is LOMO a superb venue for your Friday and Saturday night, LIVE singers on a Thursday for ‘Date Nights’ aren’t to be missed.
It doesn’t stop there though. The newly refurbished LOMO Lounge based upstairs features it’s very own bar set in a lovely warm ambience. Once you’ve finished your meal downstairs, there’s no better.
