We started with Aviation cocktails (cherry, egg white), very good. Starter of pig cheek with charred corn was excellent. Pig cheek was sooo tender, and coated in a crispy layer, for great texture. Charred corn was unusual, but delicious. Rib-eye steak came with chips and...More

Welcome to the Whippet Inn, York's best Steak and Alehouse. We have now been open for just over 3 years and very proud to have marked the occasion by winning 'Best Restaurant ' in the Visit York Tourism Awards for the second time in 2016. Over the years we have raised a few eyebrows with our name, and many have said that our interior is certainly quirky if not a little risqué, all of which we love as we want to be unique and fun. When it comes to the food and drinks we serve however; we are very serious... When we set about creating The Whippet Inn our main aim was to get the best food produce we could find in Yorkshire and then pair it with real ales, lagers, spirits and wines from around Great Britain. Fantastic beef is our thing, offering you a huge range of breeds, cuts & ageing. Our A la carte menu has a huge variety of meat, fish & vegetarian dishes- so there is really something for everyone! We are open from Midday everyday serving our lunch & a lite bite menu alongside the A la carte or Sunday Menu. Our bar is an eclectic mix of Real Yorkshire Ales - right through to over 40 different gins- we maybe small but we have used every nook and cranny to ensure we have an amazing range to offer our quests. All this is delivered with down to earth homely Yorkshire hospitality. Our home from home is adult dining only, so we do hope that if you have children & find yourself with a babysitter for the night- you will take the chance to come & join us!
