Square Meal Review of The Star Inn the City ?

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 salmon, tomato sorbet and pea purée, while pickled quince take centre stage in a blue cheese salad. Elsewhere, a dish of cod and mash with parsley sauce is perked up with steamed mussels – a 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.

    Lady Aga :: Star Inn The City, York

    Celebrate Good Times: My number one restaurant has a sibling and it’s quite the beauty. A brand spanking-new build in York’s historic Museum Gardens, overlooking both flora, fauna, city walls and the river - scenically it’s got it all going on and the food’s pretty darned beautiful too; just as one would expect from the legendary Andrew Pern and his partner in crime, Justin Brosenitz. Inside you can expect comforting furnishings as per the countryside original but with a city slickness in the form of glass walls, panoramic views and a few random modern design touches...
