Food was stunning, had the halibut and vegan steak and the pedron peppers as well as dessert, all 10/10 drinks were lovely and service was brilliant and friendly, atmosphere was absolutely made by the music choices e.g. good vibrations by the beach boys, great theme with the decor, lovely cutlery, can’t say enough really
Brilliant service and food, really nice staff, little problem with the older generation speaking about my girlfriend, tried to say something without causing a scene, obviously nothing you could’ve done, will be visiting again soon thank you
Excellent food, service and surroundings. A lovely restaurant and bar, close to the city centre.

Fabulous food and service. Amazing wine list. Outdoor seating with great heating to suit your need.
We had this place recommended by a friend. We’re glad we went. Excellent food, excellent service.
We had an excellent meal at the Whippet Inn that was made even better by the fantastic service we received. We will definitely be back.
Absolutely delicious meal, as always. Great service. We had a wonderful evening - thank you.
Had a great time, really good service and thoroughly enjoyed it😁
Great food and service- always visit when we come to York
Very disappointing meal at The Whippet Inn. Unfortunately the menu didn't live up to the reviews and recommendations we had read/received. The A La Carte menu was limited and expensive for the meal you got. For example we ordered the Ribeye steak (£25.00). You literally got a steak and chips (no salad, no veg). With only two ingredients on the plate you think it would be hard to get things wrong. Asked for a medium steak but it arrived practically still mooing! We also had the trout which was nice but it was a teeny tiny portion for the price. We did raise these issues with the staff but our comments were just ignored. Small portion sizes. Not very well cooked. Over priced. Staff not very helpful.
Fantastic service! Would definitely return. Food lovely - Sunday roast meat was great quality.
Had a reservation for Sunday Lunch. Seated on time and the restaurant staff very warm and welcoming. Both of us had the roast beef which was cooked to perfection and the Yorkshire puddings were infused with herbs... Lovely. The only disappointment was the horseradish wasn't homemade (saw it being poured from a jug).
The cheese cake and raspberry parfait deserts were very flavourful.
I chose the vegetarian option, a cauliflower steak. It looked wholly unappealing, was undercooked and badly burnt on the outside. It should have been described as a bush tucker trial. It was the worst vegetarian meal I have had. We asked for bread for the table of four and given two small pieces on a saucer, no butter. My experience was then topped off by a loud post mortem by the Head Waitress. Her tone was condescending and quite rude. Evidently the cauliflower is a popular dish that she often enjoys herself. This has to rate as one of the worst dining experiences.
Fabulous restaurant,lovely food,atmosphere & service- would recommend x
Great fine food and service
Nice environment and very attentive staff, but massively overpriced. Portions tiny. Asparagus was laughable at £8, 3 tiny cold spears and one swirl of sauce. Salmon not much better. Fillet steak was overcooked and tough at £27, chicken portion also tiny.
Really disappointing as we were so looking forward to it. Wine and drinks were fine.
Chose The Whippet Inn as it had excellent reviews, must admit overall it was a disappointing experience, apart from the excellent service and friendly staff, I would be rating them at 2 stars.
Food was very well presented, starters were good, mains were 2 x rib eyes which were cooked to perfection but were not great cuts, lots of fatty bits, the triple cooked chip were over done as were the onion rings. Maybe we caught them on an off night. The old fashioned cocktail was excellent
Bit on the expensive side very good food but at the end of the day still a pub, very good service though staff very friendly
We visited on a weekend break to York. The food was amazing, the service from Pippa was excellent. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone.
Lovely venue with an ideal atmosphere. Really friendly staff whose service was excellent. Food was great with a well balanced selection. Couldn’t fault it.
Very pleasant evening meal. Food was cooked to perfection, service was lovely and not rushed, thank you.
