“A real gem of a Yorkshire Inn”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

This place is so magical. It appears to be a thatched pub in the middle of Harome near Helmsley but is much more than that. When first entering you are met with low beams, a crackling log fire and a lovelly cosy little bar. We were warmly welcomed and asked if we wanted a drink in the pub before going through for dinner. Having ordered our choices we were taken through to the 'old' restaurant where we were seated next to another crackling fire. The atmosphere was all we had hoped for with wooden tables, low beams, wooden floor boards covered by a large rug and an eclectic mix of artwork on the walls. Our meal was beautifully cooked although the food is extremely rich and we failed to finish our main courses for this reason. Upstairs is a very cosy private dining room set in the thatch along with an even cosier lounge where you can have coffee after dinner. The back garden was beautifully designed for summer barbecues. They also have rooms in a neighbouring property which are all highly unique ie a billiard table in one room.
All in all a wonderfully romantic evening.

A real gem, indeed, especially at this time of year with all the fires lit to add to the warmth of the hospitality. Thank you for your comments and hope you'll stay for a game of billiards next time! Cheers AP.

Been our fourth visit and stay at the Star, you could say we are a big fan of the place!
Rooms are so comfortable and well appointed, very homely.
The food and service are amazing, heaps of local ingredients superbly cooked and presented with some very well thought out dishes.
The staff are very attentive and so polite, if anybody wants to see how it's done properly then these guys are the ones to watch!

We vist the star every 2-3 Months as we live in Gloucester and been going there since 2005, really can't understand why this places has not got the Michelin back, we got two pubs local to us both awarded michelin star and the STAR Harome cooking and execution of dishes outshine both .

Service was so good again, Thank u: We have two young boys and always the staff are so good, The food amazing as normal , belly of lamb and sole , Would love to see the miniatures desserts back, aslo a couple years back they done a assiette of chocolate £10.00, one of the best desserts ever.

We stayed here for two nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary & thought the place was fantastic.
We stayed in Room 1, which was the height of luxury & even had a free standing bath at the bottom of the bed. Great room for a romantic break.
Breakfast served on a huge round table was excellent & plentiful & the complimentary afternoon tea of cheese & homemade cakes was a nice touch.
The attention to detail here makes the place a very special place to stay.

Second visit in the last 18 months but again very impressive. The smoked salmon Caesar was a combination of pure genius and the hare main was probably the best I have had. Almost like a local pub with great food and very good staff. Highly rated in my view.

We went with our friends who are well versed in the catering trade. The bar area is delightful and the staff very helpful and the table we had would have suited Michael Winner with very comfortable seating. The food and wine was superb and nearly 3 hours passed like a flash as we just enjoyed the experience. We were all very satisfied and look forward to returning.

Been before expectation was great but The Star has gone down the pan just like my food when i got home. The food was over rated, over priced and the atmosphere was non exisiting the staff uttered 2 words when serving no banter and the odd "is your food to out liking" .
We could not get out of the restaurant quick enough as it was cold and draft was coming down the stairs where we were seated. The main course of lamb was a joke it was like eating a large roll of fat with a little meat inside ,the morning after I am still suffering. A little bowl of potatoes and cauliflower between 4 was pathetic , the morning after I am still suffering . Michellin Star no way they need to get back to grass roots and start producing quality food , good atmosphere and not just rely on the past. Will not be going back.

Very sorry to hear that your dinner was not to your liking. The lamb belly is, indeed, a fatty cut of meat and it is regretable that you did not take up the matter with our front of house staff. Regards AP
