Frequently asked questions

Can I reschedule my reservation?

Yes, as long as you let us know via email at least 72 hours in advance. If your request is made within 72 hours of when you originally requested to come, then it could mean it’s too late for us to fill your table and will therefore be treated as a cancellation.

Is it really adult only?

Absolutely. We offer an escape from the stresses of daily life, and kids tend to be one of those stresses (especially other people’s!). So 14 years and above only, please — unless they have four legs and a tail, in which case they’re welcome regardless of age.

Is there a dress code?

Nothing strict, but we’re not big on fancy dress, sports tops, combat gear, tracksuits, or anything that glows.

Are you dog friendly?

How could we say no to those eyes? We love our four-legged friends, so they’re more than welcome — but only in the bar and garden terrace area. Please call us on +44 (0) 1904 500 660 to check we’ve got space.

Do you accept walk-ins?

If there’s space then we’ll ‘av ya! But it’s best to book if you can.

Is The Whippet Inn wheelchair accessible?

Unfortunately, because the Whippet Inn is a Grade II listed, Victorian building it’s a bit of a tricky one. The main entrance has three shallow steps, but with a little notice the garden can be made accessible to come through the side door. The internal doors and corridor aren’t huge, though, so it depends on the width of the wheelchair. If you come via the garden, there are then two very small steps down into the restaurant. But the restaurant, bar and facilities are all on one level. 

Please do call us on +44 (0) 1904 500 660 and we’ll always try our best to accommodate your needs.

Summer fruits - dessert, The Whippet Inn Restaurant & Pub. The best place place in York for desserts and puddings
What people

I'm almost embarrassed to admit, we come here so often as a family the staff know all of our names and what we like to eat and drink! This neighbourhood restaurant in a local institution, off the beaten track with superb food catering to all tastes and wines and cocktails that'll make you want to stay the day and night. But don't tell everyone where it is, or I'll never get a table...
