Description: At Starks it's all about serving fresh, tasty food using the best ingredients. During the day we serve breakfast from 9am and a simple cafe style lunch from 12 noon. In the evening we set the tables, light the candles and offer a vibrant, seasonal dinner menu. On Sunday we now do a fantastic Sunday Lunch, served from 12-3pm

Lovely restaurant with a warm welcome. Food was fab, best scallops I've had. Good drinks menu. Had a great time, staff were excellent. We hadn't been for a while but we won't leave it as long for our next visit. Always good to support local, independent restaurants, especially when they are this good!

We have been to this restaurant before and never left after a meal feeling disappointed.

I had the Porchetta (roasted pork) sandwich-with tasty onions.Extra sauce and Ciabatta bread. Called a sandwich but a meal in itself.....
My husband had the Brioche bun with 2 beef burgers (using real beef cooked to perfection)and chips.Neither of us like "fat chips," preferring fries but these chips made us alter our opinion. Hand cut not too thick and we think cooked twice, yum,yum.
Menu is not huge, changed regularly and always you are served with something a bit different and that is a huge plus,
Anyone with any kind of dietary requirements only has to mention this and they are catered for too.
Everything is cooked to order and so tastes very fresh and only the finest ingredients are used.
We didn't book today and although the restaurant was nearly full, managed to get a window seat. We chose a New Zealand white wine which again was excellent.
Wines are not over priced.
Staff very efficient, friendly and welcoming ,but not over familiar and not coming over just as you take a bite to eat to ask ,"Is everything alright?" Having said that you are made to feel welcome and almost as if you have been invited into someone's home. Such a lovely ambience and nothing seems to be any trouble. I would have taken photo's but we were enjoying our meal too much .....
Because this restaurant is not huge it would be a great place to celebrate a special party or anniversary.

Eaten here a couple of times. I love the décor, and I love the food. House wines are well priced, they were very happy catering for a vegetarian in our party. Service was excellent.
Definitely due for a return visit.

The friendly service here is heartening. I really like the ambience ... no fuss, clean and tidy with a minimalistic look. I was with my son and daughter and we were all pleased with our lunchtime order. The food is yummy and it is beautifully presented. I would love to return one evening.
