If you’re looking for a gastronomic journey like no other, look no further than The Whippet Inn. Nestled away on one of York’s more modest streets, you’ll find this Grade II listed hidden gem of a restaurant, which promises immediate immersion into a sultry atmosphere you can almost sink into.

On entering this adult only environment (14 years and above), guests find themselves enveloped by quirky and comfortable décor that contributes to its unique sense of character.

One of the Whippet Inn’s favourite sayings, ‘Escape The Ordinary’, is clearly distilled into everything they do, from their newly acquired dry aging cabinet and in-house barrel aged cocktails, right through to the service, delivered with genuine smiles by a passionate team dedicated to making their guests feel immediately at home.

One of the highlights of The Whippet Inn is their new dry aging cabinet of culinary marvels (AKA: Phil!), whose proud display of beef cut selections would make any carnivore’s heart skip a beat. Showcasing a vast array of prime beef, each selection promises a unique flavour and tenderness that can only be achieved through the delicate dry aging process.

While York boasts a number of fantastic establishments, The Whippet Inn’s traditional dry aging technique, and commitment to ensuring meticulously aged beef, really sets it apart from other restaurants.

A Symphony of Cuts and Breeds:

The Whippet Inn takes great pride in sourcing the best beef to ensure the ultimate experience in flavour and quality. The cabinet currently houses exquisite cuts including- Rib of Beef, T-Bones, Sirloins and of course the much beloved Whisky Ribeye. The Whippet Inn plans to branch out into rarer delicacies, as they expand their ever-changing menu of speciality meats.

Ethically sourced meat has become increasingly important to The Whippet Inn. As a result, they’ve become champions of the practice of using ex-dairy cattle, whereby cows retire following a four-year dairy cycle, and are left to naturally grow fat.

Another benefit of using ex-dairy cattle when possible is enhanced land efficiency, through taking advantage of pre-existing dairy infrastructure and farms. Reusing these structures avoids the need for additional land conversion, maintaining existing ecosystems and sustaining their natural biodiversity.

The Perfect Pairings:

No steak experience is complete without the perfect accompaniments. The Whippet Inn delivers on that front too, offering a unique selection of mouth-watering side-dishes. That’s not to mention the extensive wine list, which features an array of delicious yet accessible wines on the menu, alongside a speciality board of bold bottles. Your server will be able to suggest the perfect pairing to your beef, fish, or vegetarian dish.

The Whippet Inn also offers a full a la carte menu, presenting seasonally-inspired plates which are clearly as enamoured by the kitchen as their renowned steaks.

York’s Best Restaurant?  York is home to some amazing venues, and The Whippet Inn certainly sits among the best the city has to offer. A MUST for visitors and locals alike, The Whippet Inn truly delivers on its promise of serving the best meat in York while creating a remarkable dining experience, leaving guests in a state of culinary euphoria.
