Private dining experiences at The Whippet Inn, York

Your party can either order off the standard menu, or we can discuss some alternative options when you book to tailor it to your needs — including personalised canapés for special occasions, and buffets for a more informal dining experience.

If you’re interested in booking out some space, we have a few different options for you…

Our main restaurant

Often booked for birthdays, company events and wedding receptions — the main restaurant area has a high ceiling, exposed brickwork and original features.

Capacity: up to 34 people

The padded cell

The infamous padded cell offers a more intimate dining experience for smaller groups. This one’s a great option for boardroom meetings and small presentations — with fast Wi-Fi, AV equipment and Day Delegate Packages available upon request.

Capacity: up to 14 people

The bar

Capacity: up to 25 people

The bar area is perfectly suited to more relaxed get-togethers when you’ll want easy access to the liquids, alongside some nibbles from our British tapas menu.

Whole caboodle

And if you’re especially popular, you can always just get the whole place — including the heated courtyard, of course.

Capacity: up to 80 people

people say

We booked the private dining space for my mother in-law's 70th Birthday. Nothing was too much trouble and the food, wine and service were exceptional. Having the private space made it extra special and scored me some massive son-in-law points!
