The Star Inn At Harome

The Star Inn Restaurant is currently closed following a major fire on 24th November 2021, which had a devastating effect on our lovely old thatched Dining Room and Pub. Rebuilding works are now underway and we envisage a phased reopening over the autumn, initially allowing dining for hotel residents only and for weekend lunches for non-residents (from 1st October 2022).

Cross House Lodge, our rustic, rural retreat, was unaffected by the fire and we are accepting individual hotel bookings on a Bed and Breakfast basis up to 30th September 2022. Dinner can be enjoyed courtesy of our friends at the Pheasant Hotel, in the village to complete your get-away break.

From 1ST OCTOBER 2022, we can guarantee dining (Tasting Menu only for the initial opening period) in The Star Inn Restaurant in connection with ALL HOTEL BOOKINGS. We are now inviting accommodation enquiries via the Room Booking widget and will make further announcements in due course.

(... rebuilding for the next chapter)

Following the devastating fire in November 2021, the rebuilding programme is now well underway with a planned, staged reopening in the forthcoming autumn. Following liaison with the conservation authorities, the old Inn will be put back much as it was, but revealing some previously hidden construction features and preserving some of the charred roof timbers in acknowledgement of the latest episode of this much-loved C14th Inn’s history.

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 normally 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.


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 area for those who like to enjoy a little shot of history.
