As always lovely service, good menu with well informed staff. Will definitely go again
Amazing evening, very attentive waiter, the food was great. We had a fantastic time
Brilliant again we love The Whippet Inn. Great atmosphere, service and food. A York gem!
Every course was cold didn’t want to complain but would not return
Lovely tasty meal, well presented. Efficient staff. Meal took a little while to arrive, probably due to not having starters. Room got a little bit too warm but still ambient atmosphere. Friends from London really enjoyed it and thought it different and good value for money.
Beautiful food, and our waitress was great, very attentive & engaging. Even better as we had a 50% off food voucher during January - great idea from one of York's best steak restaurants!
Fantastic steak for me and my wife on a break to York. Great desserts too! Would go again
Booked a table for Sunday evening for a roast. When odering food was told that roasts all ran out at 5pm.
Ordered of the a la carte menu. Food was well cooked but small portions. Desert was enjoyable. Service was great.
Probably won’t return.
Really lovely meal!! Just met with a couple of good friends for lunch, amazing service, great food, great atmosphere! Would definitely recommend !
Excelling service from Grace!! Food was perfect, will defiantly be returning and reccomending to everyone!
This is a very mixed review as I had the chicken trio and my husband had steak. The smoked chicken was on the dry side, the chicken and leek pie was not warm enough and stodgy with the bottom of the pastry almost uncooked. The lollipop was tasteless as was the mustard mash. I found myself having to add salt and pepper to everything. Also the small amount of veg that was added was definitely not as described. I was very disappointed. On the other hand my husband had the fillet steak special and everything was spot on ! The desert ginger parkin and salted caramel sauce was devine. As it was my birthday treat I was most dissatisfied. I noticed the lady on the next table also sent her meal back and then ended up taking it home for her dog ! I also thought it was cold in the restaurant.
Excellent Sunday roast lunch, the beef was cooked to perfection and was accompanied by a good selection of vegetables, I would definitely recommend and it was also good value for money in my opinion as a Londoner dinning in York.
We came here for Sunday lunch. We will definitely be back! The service was fantastic and the set menu was excellent value.
I had salmon to start which was so fresh and tasty. For mains we had rib of beef which just fell off the bone, and the extras cauliflower cheese, parsnips, carrots and lots of roast potatoes.
The best roast we’ve had in York.
Really good honest food ! Will definitely be back soon . The staff were very friendly and helpful. Thanks
Amazing food and service as always! Thank you!
What a find! Brilliant and inventive menu which lived up to its promise. Beautifully presented food in a classy but quirky atmosphere.
The staff were friendly and attentive and could not be faulted, they really went the extra mile to make everyone feel special.
The only negative comment I could make is that the music could be better chosen to enhance the ambience.
I would book again in a heartbeat
Steaks are incredible and cooked to perfection. Waiting staff were great and nothing was too much trouble.
Amazing! Always a lovely service and great food. All round good experience.
Amazing place. Great staff make a special evening :)
Fantastic food an atmosphere in a former pub just back from the River Ouse. The staff are attentive and friendly with good advice on the menu and specials . If you love steak then this is the place to come to its always cooked and served to perfection.
Second time dining here and once again a great experience..........until we were unexpectedly presented with the bill without being asked if we wanted puddings or anything else. Feeling we had obviously overstayed our welcome we paid and left. A disappointing end to an otherwise lovely Sunday lunch.
The whippet was recommended to me by my son who had been before. The building by the looks of it had been a pub before which made it nice and comfortable not big and new with all polished surfaces like some places. The food was excellent and the service was very prompt and the waiter very helpful and pleasant , we will be going back again soon 5 stars from me and my wife.
Excellent. Yorks hidden gem!
Great food, great staff.
Lovely food in a lovely atmosphere great service too
When we haven't got the grand children with us we go here every Sunday for lunch the best in town
Superb food, ambience and breakfast service. Restaurant service really disappointing.
Excellent food, well presented, very reasonable, excellent service, 10/10.
Really lovely service. Great food and cocktails. Good for veggie options even though it’s a steak house.
Only issue is can be noisy if there is a big table booking. Could do with a separate areas for groups
We had the heritage fillet steak it was cooked to perfection 👌🏼
Second time here, steak was superb, Gin went down well, service in the restaurant was good, bar service before was a little slow. Will be back again.
Sunday lunch was what was planned and looked very good. But when we seen the other meals we decided a change.
Very nice meal. Would definitely book again if/when in York again.
The food was amazing, fresh quality ingredients.
The staff were attentive and friendly.
A great place to socialise
Fantastic food, wine list and ambience! A cleverly designed old restored pub with truly excellent food and service! 10/10!!
I brought my partner for a 30th surprise and was amazed on the quality of the food the staff was brilliant and the whippet inn its self great atmosphere!! Will definitely be coming back
Decent meal, steak was really tasty but a bit of the fatty side. Ended up leaving about half of it. Good service etc but pretty pricey for what it was. Nice place and would probably go again.
I had been before and had a fabulous experience.
This time was not exactly as I hoped for.
We were phoned and asked if we still wanted the table, why? It has been booked several weeks prior.
When we arrived our table was ready,opposite the door, which was rather cold.
Ordered drinks,no problem .Our waiter did not go through the steak options with us,or give any advice on sides.
We ordered 4 steaks with hand cut chunky chips.
The presentation was very poor, a lettuce leaf with a couple of croutons and the chips, which there were few,on the side of the plate...looked like the end of a batch? Not hand cut like our neighbours,or presented in a little tin container,
The steak itself was very good, but nothing like my previous visit.
The desert was amazing and we did all enjoy.
Cost of this.. £160...all in all a bit of a flat evening.
My husband and I loved our visit to the Whippet as part of a visit to York celebrating our wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was great and perfect for a special meal. The staff were very welcoming and attentive the whole time we were there and also very knowledgeable of the food being served. We both had burgers which were very tasty but a little rich due to the burnt bean topping. We also had the banana and peanut desert which we both loved.
Excellent steak. The chef really knows his job.
Excellent all round. We were in York for 4 days and it was by far the best meal we had.
The waitress Anna is a star.
