We have been using Wetherby Whaler in York for 5 years but the last 2 takeaways were terrible. Having complained to the manager following the first bad experience we had been promised and hoped for a return to excellence BUT it was very poor again....More

The Seniors Lunch in my opinion is the best value for money that I know of. There is always different soups on offer and the new Eton Mess sweet was good. The staff are always very friendly and efficient.

Frequent here regularly with our kids. Always good service and food- you get excellent value for money with the kids meals. Service is fast and food is always fresh and hot.

No, guide dogs only. The village of Poppleton is only a mile away from the Whaler. The White Horse is dog friendly and the food is superb: new owner came in about three months ago he is an accomplished chef.
