The Star Inn At Harome

Welcome to The Star Inn at Harome!
We are delighted to reopen our doors and welcome guests old and new in these uncertain times of Covid-19. Whilst we are striving to make your visit as normal as possible, we have a few rules that need to be adhered to by law, including social distancing, the wearing of a face mask, when not seated at a table, and the (dreaded) 10.00pm curfew! So, if we all respect the law, our staff and each other, we will get through this pandemic together with a great team effort. Thank you very much for your cooperation. Please enjoy your visit and our Yorkshire hospitality.
Cheers 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 and currently offers a more casual Summer Garden 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.

(... 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, whilst the Pub Bar operates on a first-come-first-served basis, as do the outside tables.

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 with their after dinner drinks.
