Best Steak Restaurants in York – I love a good steak and am really happy that we have so many fabulous steakhouses in York.  We have some really excellent quality steak restaurants serving local wagyu steak, a very well established Argentinian steak restaurant and a Brazilian Rodizio.


Tomahawk Steakhouse in York

Lendal Cellars, 26 Lendal, York YO1 8AA

Tomahawk Steakhouse is a restaurant with an impressive menu. It’s situated in the corner of St Helen’s Square, next to The Mansion House down the walkway that leads to Lendal Cellars, with a cute little courtyard space in front which must be glorious on an evening with fire heaters and festoon lights.

We visited and tried their flat iron steak and ribeye steak.  They also do sharing boards, Porterhouse, Chateaubriand and Wagyu steaks.

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)”
