Having never been to York before we had no idea how busy all the fabulous restaurants were! Turned up the the Whippet Inn, saw all the tables were full and worried we would be in for a bit of a wait...not at all! They opened up the private dining room and set up the room for us and another couple while we chose drinks at the bar. Brilliant member of bar staff, very knowledgeable and when they didn't have a specific spirit my partner wanted clearly showed their knowledge by recommending something that might suit his taste which he loves, and clearly listen to their patrons and when the didn't have a certain type of Rose, could recommend one that a patron particularly has mentioned tasted just as good, and they were absolutely correct. It has a lovely range of different spirits and different beers which was lovely and refreshing! We were seated quickly and the service and food were fantastic! I had scallops (perfectly cooked), my partner squid which was scrumptious. We both had sirloin steak for the main, without a doubt that was the best steak both of us have had in many many years! Onion rings and sweet potato chips were gorgeous. Service was attentive asking if we wanted additional drinks as soon as the glasses were empty and plates were cleared quickly and promptly. My other half had the gin and apple sorbet for pudding, very yummy and just a bit alcoholic! After paying the bill we had mentioned in passing that we had just gotten engaged and they then asked if we'd like to stay for a glass of bubbly on the house to celebrate! An amazing touch and end to a lovely engagement dinner! A little hidden gem which is clearly loved by many!
