The Star Inn At Harome

Covid-19 Regulations
Good News! We will be open from 2nd December 2020 for hotel residents and diners alike, with social distancing measures in place. In line with the current Tier 2 guidelines, bookings can be taken only for single households/social bubbles (this excludes Christmas bubbles). All diners must place final drink orders by 10pm and leave the restaurant by 11pm. However, early evening dining slots are now available and we will be opening with our new seasonal menus. Anyone looking for a social pint or drink will have to do so with a ‘substantial meal’ now. We will have daily specials to entice you in. Hopefully we will be reviewed again on 16th December. One way or another we look forward to welcoming one and all back to The Star Inn soon!
Cheers All! Andrew Pern

Star Inn At Harome Rooms

(... essentially a rustic gourmet bolthole)

Situated on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors in the picturesque village of Harome, near Helmsley, this much-loved thatched Inn’s origins are understood to date back to the C14th. The current chapter of its history opened with the arrival of Chef/Patron, Andrew Pern in June 1996, since when it has been consistently rated as one of the UK’s top eateries, holding a Michelin star for a generous portion of Andrew’s tenure.

The Star Inn is essentially an Inn with Rooms serving ‘modern Yorkshire’ food made primarily from locally-sourced seasonal ingredients, such as local game, North Sea fish and fresh herbs from its own kitchen garden. Wines and beers are carefully selected to compliment the dining menu, whilst service is knowledgeable, but friendly. Add to this the atmosphere of an Inn with hospitality steeped into its very timbers for a proper Star treat.

Star Inn At Harome Food

(... home-cured hospitality)

During the past two decades, The Star has won virtually every relevant industry award from a much-celebrated Michelin star to Top UK Gastropub and has remained a firm favourite destination for hospitality professionals and diners who return again and again for The Star’s unique home-cured hospitality.

The Restaurant is open all year round offering a seasonal A la Carte Menu and, for pre-bookings, a full Tasting Menu with the option of a matched package of premium wines selected by our Wine Consultant.


Daily Specials allow the Chefs to take advantage of Catch-of-the-Day fresh fish, limited availability game and kitchen garden produce, as the seasons allow.

Star Inn At Harome Home

(... much-loved thatched Inn)

The Restaurant has been extended over the years to add the stylish, modern New Dining Room with its smart banquette seating and the cocktail bar, looking out onto the rear gardens and beyond to the Kitchen Garden.

The original much-loved thatched Inn houses the Pub Bar with its roaring fire on cooler days, the low-ceilinged Old Dining Room, and upstairs in the eaves, the Coffee Loft and Private Dining Room. Bookings are taken for the Dining Rooms, During the period of Covid-19 restrictions, we will be taking bookings for dining tables in our Pub and regret there will be no bar facility for pre- and post-dinner drinks.


The Pub Bar was the work of the famous Robert Thompson, the ‘Mouse Man’ of Kilburn and the cruck construction of the building can be viewed in the upstairs Coffee Loft for those who like to enjoy a little shot of history.
