York Minster Refectory is in an incredible location with fantastic views of York Minster.  They serve breakfast, have an all day menu as well as light bites. 

They have many seafood dishes on the menu, including oysters, crab, mackerel and salmon.

We visited for lunch and it was excellent as you would expect from a restaurant run by Andrew Pern and his team.  British classics done with the best ingredients and with flare.

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)”
