Description: 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

Reviewed August 22, 2014

Came here with my partner we had no idea where we wanted to go & stumbled across this place. It was absolutley fantastic the service was quick and the staff were polite and professional.
The food - well it's one of the best and tastiest meals we've ever had! And it's not overly priced but more than we usually pay, but for the quality the price is reasonably fair. Both meat & veggie options available.
There is a good atmosphere and is well decorated - lots of unusual items and pictures to look at! But fit in well with the air of place.
Cannot wait to go back again.

“consistently brilliant”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

3rd visit for us and the 1st for our Adult-in-training son. The menu had old favourites on there as well as some newbie. At 1st I was gutted to see the wine list had changed until Tom, our knowledgeable waiter, steered me in the direction of a stunningly beautiful wine. Our son was made a fantastic fruit juice combo and hubby stuck to his fave lager. Our meals were perfect as always and we relaxed and felt at home in the surroundings. All in all absolutely Spot on.!! see you again soon

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

My husband and I were on a 4 day break to York. We had dinner at the Whippet Inn twice!!
I think that says it all. Would definitely return.
The best steak and chips ever (home cooked - not frozen)

“Anniversary heaven!”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

Wonderful and attentive staff, a great setting and amazing food made our wedding anniversary memorable.
A small restaurant with a bar out the front, it has a intimate atmosphere. The food was original and a great selection, I don't eat meat but there was plenty of meat and veggie options, everything cooked perfectly. Would recommend highly.
