The Whippet Inn
a good meal in pleasant surroundings with great wine list
Booked at the last minute but were able to get a table in a busy little place. Service and staff was very good and would return in the future.
As usual best steaks in York. Great service and ambiance.
Second visit to the whippet Inn, the food is excellent and the staff are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Lovely, laid back atmosphere!!
It's a little bit faded and tatty, not so different from the pub I remember 30 years ago. We all enjoyed ourselves and the steaks two of us had were very succulent. The beer is well chosen and well kept. The service was goo, if rather slow considering only two tables ere occupied, but I guess good food doesn't come quickly. The cauliflower steak on a cauli couscous was a bit of an overload - something different as a bed would have been better. The pannacotta, to a non-dessert eater like me was a revelation.Excellent!
Very disappointed with the service and the meal. The portions were ridiculously small was still hungry. We had to go somewhere else to eat. The meal just lost on the plate also the chips what my husband had were cold.so disappointed
Booked for 4pm for Sunday lunch they rang me on the day of visit to confirm we would be coming arrived on time to be told no beef left very disappointed
Great food and service. Piped music could get a little loud.
Friendly attentive staff the food what can I say the best fillet steak I have ever had a little on the pricey side but you get what you pay for. I would recommend trying we will be back when we visit York again.
An exceptionally stylish gastro-pub. The Sunday deal on three courses was a real bargain and the service was absolutely perfect. The only thing keeping me from giving it a fifth star was the horrible desert course, an apple crumble which looked and tasted like the bottom of the kitchen bin, it was enormous and inedible.
Lush food booked a table for Easter Sunday and we're told the time we book they would be serving roast which was fine but we were a little gutted, got to the whippet inn and there gave us the menus and said we could have the roast so it made our day and it was an amazing roast dinner.
Great food Great service. Busy Easter Sunday but no problem for the well prepared staff.
3rd visit to The Whippett inn food great, gins great, service good 😊
Very casual. Good vegan options.
The restaurant was cold,the food was ok, sticky toffee pudding was nothing special have had a lot better,
Fantastic meal, we arrived for early doors. Had a really great meal.
Another excellent meal at The Whippet Inn! Food is fabulous and the service is great!
What a lovely pub. Charming staff, even when a customer sitting near us was very difficult, very pleasant atmosphere and a delicious Sunday lunch. The wine list is very good too. Excellent value for money .
Excellent food and service as it was the 1st time we had a meal there
Wonderful as usual. Can’t wait to comeback soon
We were shown to our table right on time, very polite and friendly waiter. Good wine selection. Food arrived in good time, I had Lamb, Moroccan style, my partner Roast Beef. All very tasty and cooked well and followed by some nice desserts. All in all a nice experience.
Love this place ,our favourite place in York to eat
Staff were brilliant. Food was amazing. Wonderful experience. Thank you.
The food and service at this place was out of this world! Best steak I have ever had in my life. Lovely little tucked away gem.
An outstanding place to to go, went for a romantic dinner for two and was not disappointed, great setting, good atmosphere, amazing staff, awesome food. Advise you to book as only limited number of tables which helps keep this place a bit more special and their don’t allow stag or hen parties so no fear there!
Outstanding steak served with traditional British fare. Service was helpful and attentive. One of the best steak restaurants I’ve visited. Highly recommended.
This is our 3rd time here and I have to say it never lets us down. We always visit York but when it’s a special occasion we definitely choose this exceptional place for steak. The quality of the food, wine and staff really do speak for itself. Keep up the great work 👍.
Fantastic, but don’t tell anyone or I won’t be able to get a table when I go back there!
Great food, great service, great atmosphere, great vibe, just all round excellent.
Good portion sizes, no pretentiousness. Would love to go back!
Probably the best steak restaurant in York. We go here all the time. Never had a bad meal or service. Back soon!
Great food, excellent service, warm atmosphere.
The servers were well mannered helpful and friendly (special mention to the young chap behind the bar who went out of the way to make a mocktail (not on the menu) for my girlfriend who doesn’t drink)
The food was fantastic, perfectly seasoned, good portion size; the fillet melted was like butter. Very good value for money.
100% would eat here again and would heartily recommend.
I can t recommend this place as I think is overstated. I went by myself as I was in a work trip but it is not friendly for solo travellers. I was taking a minute break from eating and my food was still on the plate and the waiter asked if I had finish. They were such in a hurry to free the table up for other people and this is rude. The food was average, nothing special. Never again
Beautiful food and fab service ! A real hidden gem we really enjoyed our visit
Fantastic food, loved the decor, staff attentive without being intrusive. Warm and welcoming. Excited to return. Worth spending a bit more. We did go at a quiet time so not experienced it at peak hours.
Very warm service, food was very good, I would definitely go back.
Very nice restaurant, only issue was with a lack of particular alcohols... no Johnnie Walker, no Gordon’s etc
Great place for quality food with good friends. Atmosphere just right and staff quietly attendant- than you !
We often go to York and the whippet is our choice every time for steak never fails always quality
We found it difficult to locate. The sign is not very clear.
However, the staff were very pleasent and efficient. The food nicely presented. Bill about average for a central city location.
