Welcome to The Star Inn… we hope you will enjoy our home-cured Harome hospitality.

Situated in a picturesque village on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, a couple of miles outside the market town of Helmsley, this much-loved inn has origins believed to date back to the 14th Century. Once described as 'absurdly pretty', the thatched pub with its low beams and wonky walls (which mean the pictures won't hang straight!) has centuries of hospitality steeped into its very timbers.

Chef/Director, Andrew Pern, regards himself as just a chapter in The Star's long history, despite being the owner of the pub since 1996, when it was acquired in a near derelict state. Since that time it has not only been restored, whilst maintaining and enhancing its abundant character, but it has picked up a long list of prestigious awards and expanded to incorporate a hotel just across the road…

working at the star

Cross House Lodge, The Star's eight-bedroomed (and soon to become nine-bedroomed) hotel was converted from some former farm buildings and joined the family in 2002 after extensive renovation work to create shooting lodge-style accommodation with the option of private dining in the Wheelhouse (also licensed for weddings).

More recently, in 2008, The Star was extended to add a new state of the art kitchen incorporating a Chef's Table. The 'New Dining Room' was fashioned from the former kitchens. This opens out onto the Terrace, the perfect spot for al fresco dining in good weather - and don't miss the Kitchen Garden, where garnish herbs, edible flowers for salads and flowers for the restaurant tables are grown.
