You want steak and wine The Whippet will do you fine.
we were in York for my belated 30th celebration. Me and my girlfriend had read the reviews on this place and thought we'd give it a go. it's very unassuming from the outside, we sat in the smaller room to the right and I must say it is one of the best dining experiences I've had for a very long time. I'm a GM of a restaurant myself, this was top notch! If anyone after lockdown of course is thinking of somewhere to have a great steak meal i would 100% recommend this place! Thank you so much for the experience!
Lovely Sunday Roast.
Limited menu but what they do they do very well - great Sunday Roast!
Unfortunately waiter spilled a full glass of water on my wife. Stated he was sorry but not even an offer of said complimentary sparkling water @ extortionate £4.00 offered from over £110 bill for 2. Food over complicated by too many variations of taste, sometimes simplicity is best.
1st visit for a Birthday meal, will definitely not be our last.
Great service, great food, great wine.
Some may say a little expensive but not for the quality - the steak was to die for!
Will definitely return when we can 👍
Brilliant staff very chatty and the atmosphere is fabulous it’s one hard to beat
Lovely restaurant with perfect food and service. Has the added benefit of some fantastic beers too!
Very nice steaks 🥩,drinks ,desserts and cocktails 🍹
The food and service were outstanding! Good food and drinks suggestions excellent safety measures it was resaltó nice! Thanks
Best place I've been so far! The food was out of the world
A fantastic and outstanding meal. Fantastic service from start to finish, from our waiter Josh. The starters, mains and deserts were amazingly tasty. We had cured salmon and chicken and ham terrine for starters which were fantastic, we both had the ribeye which was cooked perfect, and came with the most amazing triple cooked chips and peppercorn sauce. Then for pudding my boyfriend had the panacotta. We can’t wait to go back again!
Booked on a £10 per person off deal. The staff were young but very pleasant and helpful, and the restaurant was a nice place to be, we were in a room at the front with 2 other tables, only one of which was occupied. Both my wife and myself had steak, sirlion and ribeye respectively. Presentation was good, but the meat wasn't up to the standard expected on either meal. Cooked as ordered, medium rare, but both had a fair amount of fat and gristle. Had they been full price I would not have been too happy. Not inedible, but expected better. We will go again and pick something different, as everything else made it a pleasant experience on the whole. Wine was good, and we were offered to taste any of the wines prior to order, which was great.
Great place to visit, lovely restaurant, staff are great and the food brilliant! Definitely worth a visit.
Lovely vibe, decor and service with delicious food!
Excellent service and food yet again , will defiantly be returning
Fabulous meal, the food was excellent and the staff made the experience in the current climate excellent. Would recommend.
Great steak, wine & service. It always is!
A wonderful meal at the Whippet Inn. The staff are great as is the ambiance.
Lovely place with a great vibe, food and ale!
Atmosphere was positive despite the current Covid conditions.
Thanks to the team, a lovely night
Fantastic little place and the food and service was excellent, highly recommended
Although we wouldn’t be keen on the rest of the menu as it’s quite fancy, this is simply the best steak in York!!
Only ourselves in the restaurant but we had a lovely meal for my husbands birthday. My only criticism was that the butter was hard (pet hate in a restaurant!!). Lovely front of house lady serving us and made us very welcome. The food was as delish as ever!!
Booked for my wife's birthday.
From the moment we were shown our seat we felt very safe.Both my rib-eye steak with chunky chips & my wife's cod fillet on creamy mussel risotto were cooked to perfection. The Gin&Tonic lemon glazed tart was to die for.A bottle of Malbec Rose complemented the meal .
We must give a big shout to the two young waitresses who were excellent in todays climate.
I hate to give a negative review whilst in tier 2 and restaurants are struggling but I can only be honest, the snack starters we had and the dessert were all really good but the burger was not, it was overcooked and I did not enjoy the taste at all, I was up all through the night with a bad stomach and my friend who had the same was also not well from it. It was such a shame as I have had brilliant meals from here but sadly not on this occasion.
On a positive note the waitress was lovely and really attentive.
The food was absolutely fantastic, the staff were lovely & friendly. Can highly recommend. 5⭐️
Had a lovely experience from start to finish. Sat in a quiet room with two other tables of two, so felt safely socially distanced. The waiter was very attentive and charming and food came quickly. The food and wine were superb. Absolutely no complaints. Will definitely be revisiting.
Went for Sunday dinner after reading some reviews. The food was amazing, not the cheapest sunday roast but probably the best. The place looked spotlessly clean inside and the staff are friendly and helpful.
Wonderful food, really great service (Josh was lovely!), great ambience. Sad we don’t live nearer as would love to go back! Best Bloody Mary we have ever had, and the food was outstanding. Will go back if we ever go back to York!
The experience we had was great brilliant staff good food & very good regards COVID restrictions. Lovely evening will definitely return & recommend to friends
Fabulous food, drinks and music.
We had steaks... Very nice, one of the best I've ever had.
Hosts were lovely too!
Check out the wallpaper!
This was my third visit to the Whippet Inn and the food and service is incredible every time. The flavours of the food are unbelievable and the menu is inspiring and always changing. Excellent service, great wine, can’t recommend enough!
The food was excellent and the service was very pleasant, but exceptionally slow - 2 hours 45 minutes for 2 courses for 4 people
Went to Whippet with friends and enjoyed everything from the warm welcome to the food
A wonderful lunch. Really knowledgable staff who helped us make great choices. Lovely setting and amazing quality food.
Will certainly be visiting again
