Our Story…

Welcome to the Whippet Inn, York’s best Steak & Alehouse!

When we opened our doors back in 2014 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. Proudly flying the Yorkshire flag has served us well & even earned us a few awards along the way.

Great Beef is our thing, offering our guests a fantastic variety of ever changing cuts & breeds, but
we are equally obsessed about our other seasonally inspired plates featured on our A la Carte menu, focusing on locally caught fish and unique vegetarian dishes.

Located within the city walls, a little off the beat track (which sometimes has its benefits) we have been described as many things but these are just a couple of our favorites…

“A classic steakhouse with an interior that manages to be both tasteful, classic and super quirky”

“Unpretentious neighborhood Steak and Seafood restaurant with a vibe that blends modern traditional but with an unexpected twist of weirdness”

Our bar is an eclectic mix of Yorkshire Ales & Lagers – right through to over 50 bespoke gins- as we continue to be York’s Original Gin House & we celebrate this every Sunday with our now infamous Gin Club. We may be small but we have used every nook and cranny to ensure we have an amazing range to offer our quests, including a superb wine list with an incredible choice of wines by the glass.

The ideal spot for any occasion, The Whippet Inn serves both lunch & dinner, seven days a week, alongside our Main Menu & specials boards we also offer for our legendary(ish) Set Price lunch menu Monday to Friday, plus ‘Lets Get Roasted’ every Sunday, an institution unto itself and one of Yorks best kept secrets (so sshhh)

As we hope you will soon find out, we have worked hard to create a home from home atmosphere where our guests can relax & enjoy themselves, with a nostalgic decor that is quirky if not a little risqué, often referred to as ‘Yorks Hidden Gem’- all this is delivered with genuine down to earth

homely Yorkshire hospitality.
