The Star Inn At Harome

The Star Inn Restaurant is currently closed following a major fire on 24th November, which has had a devastating effect on our lovely old thatched Dining Room and Pub.

Cross House Lodge, our rustic, rural retreat, was unaffected by the fire and, from 17th January 2022, we will be opening up our rooms for Bed and Breakfast only, initially to those with existing bookings.

Owing to the major fire, we have a severe lack of dining area at our beloved Star Inn, we are currently unable to offer Dinner, so have joined forces with our friends down the road at the fabulous Pheasant Hotel. Some Star Inn staff will be helping out at The Pheasant, so you may see familiar faces and the odd familiar dish on their menu. So, come and enjoy a stay in our Gastrovillage!

We thank everyone for supporting us through these times, whilst the repairs to The Star are being arranged and look forward to being able to make further announcements in due course.

Star Inn At Harome Rooms

(... celebrating 25 years at The Star Inn)

Summer 2021 marks 25 years since the arrival of Chef/Patron, Andrew Pern in June 1996 marking the start of the current chapter of this much loved C14th thatched Inn’s history. The Star Inn has been consistently rated as one of the UK’s top eateries, holding a Michelin star for a generous portion of Andrew’s tenure. We hope you will join us in celebrating this milestone anniversary and join the ‘family’ of customers who consider The Star, their special place.

Situated just outside Helmsley on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, 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.
