Classic Sticky Toffee Pudding
with Molasses Toffee Sauce & served with Vanilla Ice-Cream
Galacian Blonde, Pan Roasted & finished in butter, Thyme & Garlic. Most tender cut with the most wonderful soft texture balanced with a subtle beef taste & suits quick cooking
Basque Mature Retire Dairy, Chargrilled. This Spanish cut is unbeaten when it comes to beefy flavours
Great food, wonderful ambience and the service was well timed and attentive. Definitely a great place for a special dinner!
Fantastic food and service one of the best steaks we have had
Mini break to York first time, amazing food, helpful friendly staff
Meeting my son for lunch
The food was amazing and the staff were amazing also, will defo be back on our next trip to York. Couldn't be better thanks 👍👍
Excellent food and service. Will definitely return.
The wallpaper was an interesting talking point too
We had Josh as a server and we couldn’t fault him at all!! He’s been amazing throughout our dining experience, accommodating us with an extra chair for a friend that joined us for some drinks during our meal and always approached us with a smile. Thank you all for this experience! We’ll be back!
Great meal and service. Recommended by a friend and would definitely recommend to others.
The Whippet was fine. The ambience lacks a bit - chairs to wait in the corridor to the loos, a very echoey bar area making it hard to relax and so forth. More importantly the food - so anticipated after so many amazing reviews - was so-so. Cold and clearly made it huge bulk the effect was rather carvery like rather than high end gastro pub. I like a carvery well enough but I’d expect it warm, more plentiful and probably a bit cheaper. In all a good place but not living up to hype.
Amazing little hidden Gem
We wanted to dine somewhere slightly more upmarket but not too “posh!” This place is perfect. Super friendly service from all the staff and the food was out of this world.
Highly recommend the venison starter and iced chocolate & mango dessert.
The steak was cooked to perfection and the burger my husband had was huge.
Great food great service 11/10
Outstanding food - the best I’ve had in York for a long time
The panacotta was stunning
Four dinners all very happy
Thank you to the team
Beautiful restaurant, lovely quirky decor.fabulous food.knowledgeable staff.
We came in June and found the overall experience very good this is why we came this time. The food didn’t seem as good of a standard as last time we was disappointed. I would recommend to a friend they might find the meal to improve and lije
Love this place. Staff are brilliant and attentive. Food is amazing and great quality. Will be back
As always, it is never a disappointment to eat here. Great quality steaks, big chips (or you can get fries), lovely wine and very friendly, welcoming staff. Good menu selection - you've got to try the battered cornichons on the Nibbles menu - delicious!
Felt rushed our table obviously was booked again after us so no gaps between courses
Great ambiance and atmosphere, service was excellent and never felt rushed or bothered. Would definitely return
Lovely wee restaurant, great food, warm welcome for our dog too.
Fantastic sharing steaks. First steak I've had for a while that I didn't think I could cook much better myself. Good drinks options. Good starters and dessert. Overall a very nice evening.
We went for the steak, which was very good, although the cost and lack of ambience (several smaller rooms) took the shine off.
Excellent food. Fairly good service. Rather be in the main room rather than the bar.
Lunchtime dining on a weekday is a delight!
Wine was outstanding
Thoroughly enjoyed this evening well worth a visit
Steaks both cooked exactly as requested, juicy and perfect. Accommodated my adjustment to the salad without quibble. Wine list isn’t huge but choices are not overpriced and the red we chose was ideal. Knowledgeable, engaging and attentive staff. Worth visiting if you’re a carnivore.
Excellent food and service easy to find from where we we’re staying.would of liked the Sunday lunch menu to be available in the evening
Outstanding job, Whippet Inn Team!! We chose the Whippet Inn for the excellent reviews of their Sunday Roast. All I can say is that it was by far the best we have had during our many trips to the UK. The Goat Cheese Salad, Roast Beef, Yorkshire Pudding, roasted vegetables were delicious!! My Orange Almond and Rapeweed dessert was fantastic!! The battery of waitstaff that served us were attentive to all our needs. Will definitely put this on our list of restaurants when we return to York.
Don’t let the outside facade put you off,,it could be a warehouse or something other than a pub! The beef is to die for, more rare than medium.lovely veg. and a massive Yorkshire Pudding too. Quality wines and beer on offer. The deserts are not for sharing ! Service is outstanding,just as it should be.
But,I’m not a fan of extra service charges added to the bill. I want to choose whether to tip or not!
Birthday holiday treat
Great food and great service. Also a strong selection of local drinks.
Positives- customer service was very good, 12.5 % added to the bill, this is optional although it comes added to the final bill anyway.
Negatives- Check what water you order, tap is available, this was immediately changed at my request after noticing other customers having this.
Unfortunately our steaks were cooked wrongly, given that there are recommendations offered on the menu, mine was rare instead of medium and vice versa, this I should have queried but didn’t.
Portions good size and good cheese board but overall average for a steak and ale enthused restaurant and fairly expensive comparable to other venues.
I love going to the Whippet Inn. Food is still amazing. Service is still first class. Setting is perfect. Can’t wait for go again next time I’m back next York.
Fantastic food and service. Highly recommended.
Would definitely come back!
Excellent find in York. Would highly recommend
One row back from the river, Park Inn end, you could easily walk straight past it. Once inside it is like a tardis, smallish rooms promote an intimate feel and a warm welcome from the hosts starts the evening off fabulously. Plenty to choose from on the menu, but recommend the “dogs” burger for those with a hearty appetite. The food was all well presented and tasted wonderful. Make sure you book to guarantee your table.
As usual whippet served excellent food professionally.
Everything was perfect from start to finish! The food was amazing and the servers were outstanding!!! Thank you for an incredible experience
So very good food and service. Ww were outside and it just felt slightly abandoned. With just a little garden design and imagination it could be great. But the food and service saved the day
Without doubt the best steak restaurant I have ever eaten in. Wonderful staff and an all round fantastic experience. Don’t miss this restaurant if you are in York.
Superb service, excellent food and a good choice of drink. Highly recommended.
