For his latest venture, Andrew Pern (of the venerable Star Inn at Harome) has pitched up in York, turning a
dilapidated Engine House within the city’s Museum Gardens into a glamorous all-day eatery – complete with a glitzy glass and timber ‘garden room’. ‘Bringing a little bit of the country to the town’
is the theme, and the Star’s offer runs from breakfast until late with a menu of rustic dishes that makes the best of Yorkshire produce. A posh prawn cocktail is embellished with cold-smoked

trademark riff on comfort food with a twist. Whether you eat in the panelled dining room, the bar or out on the terrace, it’s consistently excellent.
