My family and I enjoyed a wonderful meal tonight at the Whippet Inn. The staff could not have been anymore helpful. Ten out of ten, well done.

Had a wonderful meal with my mum and siblings. Was lovely to see there was no hike in price because of the occasion....rather that the sunday lunch menu was avaiable, and its sooooo reasonable for the food quality and quantity. Thanks for a great afternoon.

A warm welcome and although we were a little early for the table we booked we were seated almost straight away. Waiting staff very attentive and the food was extremely good and well presented. Steak done how we like it and the chicken and Parma ham was wonderful. Yummy desserts too. The Whippet Inn isn't cheap but the overall experience... More

First the good bits, the steak was very nice and well cooked. The bad bits. Miserable waitress, and forget about "home cooked chips" they are oven chips, they can cook a lovely steak but can't be bothered to cook chips, won't go again, there are better places in York.

Having heard the restaurant specialises in steak, I went for their rib-eye. It was cooked correctly and tasted absolutely fine. It did not deserve any special commendation above other restaurants however. Additionally, to charge over £20 for a steak and an additional £3 for a sauce is a bit steep for the north of England. Service was good although staff... More

We called in for a drink, and then changed our minds, and decided too eat. We were told they could fit us in, despite it being busy. The food was amazing, and the staff very attentive. I will definitely return when next in York

Thank mez1973

Welcome to the Whippet Inn, York's newest Steak and Alehouse.We have now been open for just over a year and very proud to have marked the occasion by by winning 'Best Restaurant ' in the Visit York Tourism Awards 2014. So far we have raised a few eyebrows with our name, and many have said that our interior is certainly quirky if not a little risque, all of which we love as we want to be unique and fun. When it comes to the food and drinks we serve however; we are very serious... When we set about creating The Whippet Inn our main aim was to get the best food produce we could find in Yorkshire and then pair it with real ales, lagers, spirits and wines from around Great Britain. Yorkshire beef is our thing offering you 28 day or 40 day aged beef but we have something for everyone, be it, lunch & a lite bite, dinner or just a drink in our bar.Our bar is an eclectic mix of Real Yorkshire Ales - right through to over 30 bespoke gins- we maybe small but we have used every nook and cranny to ensure we have an amazing range to offer our quests. All this is delivered with down to earth homely Yorkshire hospitality. Another of our aims was to create a place where our guests could enjoy themselves with friends over dinner or to have a relaxing drink in the bar , a kind of home from home
