Description: 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!

Book for a 30th wedding anniversary. Quite a small restaurant (rather than Inn).
Staff were very attentive and gave good advise on meals etc.
I had the scallop starter and wifey had beetroot salad. Both excellent and not over facing.
Wife had fillet steak which was a little underdone for her liking, I had the ribeye. We both had peppercorn sauce which was a little watery and disappointing. Chips were spot on.
We both had Strawberries/White chocolate for dessert.
Cost was fair for the meal at £90 ( included £5 option for kitchen staff But no drinks.
I would recommend for a special occasion

Can not fault the food or service, we all enjoyed our meals and prices were reasonable.

We tried the Japanese Duck egg starter, Vegetarian burger, truffle macaroni cheese, rib eye steaks and banana & peanut butter dessert.

Enjoyed every bit of food, friendly and efficient service and will definately be back for special occasions.

Lovely place to eat.
The waitress was very polite and explained the menu well.
The food was very good although a little expensive it tasted well , looked well and went down well with a bottle of wine and a few pints .
Although there seemed to be local people using the place we were made to feel welcome.
Very clean
Excellent service .We would return if in York again .

Came here after seeing good reviews on trip advisor , all the staff were lovely and the food was excellent. Very small restaurant so book in advance would really recommend if you're in the area.

Fantastic Meal. Fillet steak was sublime.

Everything was fantastic from the service to the wine, our party loved it and not one complaint.

If I had to point out one contructive criticism
It would the homemade chips could have been slightly better.

Highly recommended
