Reviewed 15 June 2014

We have been visiting Whites for a number of years and now that we live more locally, will almost certainly be there far more frequently.
The staff are very friendly and enthusiastic and nothing is too much trouble. There is only a tasting menu available now and it certainly lives up to its description as a "surprise" menu. All of the food was delicious and beautifully presented, but the highlights were venison which was meltingly tender, tempura samphire and homemade soda bread with treacle. There were a couple of dishes which were a little disappointing: the smoked eel in a wild garlic veloute was so smoky that it overpowered the delicate garlic flavour (it was however still delicious - I am being really picky here!) and the chocolate coating around a yummy coconut dessert had a tad too much gelatine in it. These are however minor niggles and overall the place never disappoints and we are very much looking forward to returning!
John the chef is very personable and we would have loved to have stayed and chatted to him...but it was the night of the first England World Cup match, and I suspect we would not have been popular if we had outstayed our welcome :-)! Finally one huge plus is that we can now walk home after our night out!

We had the 9 course taster menu which was amongst the most delicious and inventive food I've ever had. Each dish was perfectly arranged like a piece of art and tasted fantastic. There were three starter courses, three meat dishes and three dessert courses. The meat courses were cooked to perfection and were tender and juicy. The cheese trolley (the last course) had a vast array of interesting cheeses, and being cheese enthusiasts this was one of our favourite courses!

The meal was complimented by home made bread and butter, and complimentary canapes. The service was excellent, very friendly and accommodating waitress.

Definitely the place to go for a special occasion or treat. We will be back!

Had the most wonderful birthday at Whites. Took over the full restaurant. The food and wine were amazing as always. John certainly knows how to mix flavours and get the best results.

We have eaten at White's a few times now and have always been impressed by John's food. He is inventive with every course with much thought having been put into flavours and presentation. His young staff are very efficient and pleasant.

If you look at the restaurant from the outside it doesn't have the wow factor, but the food certainly does! There are many restaurants to choose from in Beverley but this is by far the best.

We were greeted like VIP's and made to feel comfortable immediately in the warm cosy surroundings of this intimate restaurant. Before dining any allergies, likes & dislikes were taken into account to ensure the ultimate dining experience from start to finish.
We had the 9 course taster menu and thoroughly enjoyed the combination of tastes and flavours in every course.
Each course was as colourful and packed with flavour as the next and beautifully presented causing us to pause and admire before eating.
We would have preferred to have a flight of wine to compliment each of the courses but were happy with the choice from the excellent wine menu.
We would have expected the waiters/ waitress to keep our wine & water glasses full throughout the evening, not to have to serve ourselves and at the end of the meal my husband was still hungry as we would have expected a slightly larger main course and dessert. That said the overall experience & quality if the food more than makes up for a couple of minor niggles and we look forward to returning soon.
