I found The Whippey Inn from other great reviews on trip advisor and liked both the sound of the menu and decor of the place straight away. I had the roast beef which was cooked perfectly (was given the choice of having it slightly pink). All the trimings were lovely - proper home made Yorkshires, creamed leeks, roasties as well as beetroot which was so lovely and sweet. Good choice of wine and very attentive staff. I don't live in York but will visit again the next time I'm there.
