The Whippet Inn

15 North St, York YO1 6JD

The Whippet Inn is a steak and alehouse with a fine line in seafood too.  It’s a bit of a hidden gem, tucked away as it is on North Street, but once you have been you will return.  Lovely, friendly staff look after you in a comfortable and relaxed environment with a stylish and quirky decor.  The food is fresh,  imaginative and great quality.

The menu offers such delights as ‘Picanha- 32 Day Dry Aged, Triple Cooked Chunky Chips, Garlic & Thyme Confit Vine Tomato, Green Peppercorn & Brandy Sauce’, or ‘Poached Sea Trout Fillet with Olive Oil Potato, Puffed Fish Skin, Aromatic Herb Powder, Brown Shrimp Butter & Pea Purée’.

“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 York’s best kept secrets (so sshhh)”

The Star Inn The City

The Star Inn The City is in a beautiful riverside location in the Museum Gardens.  More of a restaurant than a pub, but they welcome dogs. “The Brasserie-style restaurant opened in 2013, after Andrew Pern of the Michelin-starred Star Inn at Harome joined the building owners in their quest to establish a food-led celebration destination in one of York’s unique locations.

The aim of matching its beautiful setting with the best produce, which God’s Own County has to offer and genuine Yorkshire hospitality has resulted in the eaterie quickly becoming a firm favourite for special meals, such as graduation celebrations, birthdays and anniversaries. The Star Inn The City’s sister restaurant is The Star Inn The Harbour in Whitby, in the seaside town’s best harbour-side location and offering fish and seafood from Yorkshire’s coast alongside treats from the Moors.”

The Judge’s Lodging has a great position in the centre of York, with a beautiful courtyard bar, where you can sit and watch the world go by.  At Christmas, there are often stalls of the York Christmas Market within the grounds.  Another hotel very close to The Theatre Royal as well as The Museum Gardens.
