The Whippet Inn
The Whippet Inn’s main aim is to get the best food produce they can find in Yorkshire and then pair it with real ales, lagers, spirits and wines from around Great Britain. A fine example of this is their air dried on the bone 40 day aged Yorkshire beef from Ripon.
We are an adult dining restaurant only, as much as we love children and are raising a bunch of our own, we have decided to make this a little haven of tranquillity- a getaway for all.
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.
Love was lovely
This place is a hidden gem! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the food was amazing. Would thoroughly recommend going
Just perfect, charming staff and delicious food. Excellent background music and superb choice of wines.
Cannot rate this place high enough, and would certainly come again when next in York.
Foods , staff & the atmosphere just marvellous!
We will back again.
Love the Whippet Inn for food and service and great selection of wines. Would definitely recommend for amazing food and staff are always helpful and friendly. Will be back as often as possible.
Excellent service and delicious food!
Fabulous night! Amazing food and service
We will be back!
Amazing steaks. Great service. Spent an amazing night
Loved it here nice chilled out vibe and the food was top notch! Servers couldn’t do enough and explained anything you needed to a tee. Can’t fault anything
I went with a vegan friend and there were several great choices on the menu, even though the kitchen’s focus is on steak. The food was beautiful, inventive and interesting. The staff were thoughtful, attentive, and very flexible about the order the food came out, the fact that we were sharing courses, and everything else.
The bartender also created several delicious gin cocktails!
The service was great as well as the food. Best roast we’ve had for among time! The ambience is sophisticated yet relaxed and a good wine and local beer selection. Definitely worth a visit.
3 of us on the roast beef sunday lunch and one on a vegetarian option and I have to say I was disappointed with the quality of the cut of beef which was quite fatty and tough in places. Good starters and puddings and all the accompaniments with the mains were good.....pity it was let down by the beef. would come again to try something else, nice staff and surroundings
Excellent food and ambience, very friendly service and good selections of wine and beer. Rib eye was juicy and grilled to perfection. The garlic mushrooms were meaty and juicy. I also had peas with pancetta but the peas were oddily drowning in some kind of a creamy sauce- the only discordant note in an otherwise eccellebt meal. Finally, the sticky toffee pudding was very nice and balanced. Absolutely recommended
The food was beautiful and the waiting staff were lovely. I would definitely go again!
Warm and friendly service to compliment the amazing food. We had starters as well as the Chateaubriand and a very nice bottle of red and thoroughly enjoyed it all.
Great food, biggest tastiest Yorkshire and roast. Lovely staff
Dont judge it by the outside. It was an amazing find. Amazing.
One of the best filllet steaks I have ever eaten, great wine and atmosphere. Our waiter was amazing and was super helpful. Highly recommend.
What a fantastic place to eat and drink, the food was amazing, the staff were great from the doorman to the waiter and the wine was wonderful, we would highly recommend it.
This was recommended to me so we gave it a go and it didn't dissapoint. Had fabulous food service was very good and the rose pino grigio was delicious special treat
One of the best meals I’ve ever had in York. Service was second to none and food was exquisite
The staff were refreshingly polite, attentive and helpful.
Food was excellent and I loved the atmosphere. Such a nice relaxed atmosphere and this calibre of food don’t often go hand in hand but the Whippet does it well.
Would definitely recommend and go again.
Been to the restaurant 3/4 times now when I’ve visited York. Food is great, service is professional and friendly. Would always recommend this place!
Excellent food, professional, attentive and friendly service. Would definitely go back and recommend to friends.
Food was fantastic. Service was very good, very nice waitress made us feel comfortable.
Really nice evening and would definitely return
We thought the starters had a lot of ingredients that did nothing to improve the dish and the cost of the dishes very expensive
Service very good food was excellent and price was very fair
Thank you very much The Whippet Inn, we visited you for a celebration birthday meal and was not, on the whole disappointed. The only minor disappointment was the smoked haddock tortellini, which two of our party had, and thought a little lacking in flavour. I would stress however, the other starters and mains were superb. And with that in mind we put it down to poor choice on our part. Excellent - we will return in the near future.
Great pub, food was ok, nothing spectacular which was disappointing. Steaks were well cooked but the desserts let down our meal. Panacotta dessert was rubbish and was not what you would call a panacotta, one disk rather than a full pud that has a “wobble” left me feeling short changed and not that enjoyable. Also tried to charge us for 2 bottles of wine when we had only had one, that is not an easy mistake to make in my book
