Restaurant description

From Andrew Pern, the man behind the Michelin-starred pub The Star Inn at Harome, The Star Inn at The Harbour brings AA Rosette-awarded food to his hometown of Whitby.

The Star Inn at The Harbour's menus feature Catch-of-the-Day fish and meat specials and also world famous North Yorkshire Moors produce, such as furred and feathered game, as well as a seasonal All Day Menu.

Desserts include some childhood Ice Cream Parlour classics brought up to date. Surf 'n' Turf-style dishes are a restaurant speciality mirroring its 'one-foot-in-the-sea-one-foot-on-the-Moors' location.

Situated on the harbourside close to a number of carparks, The Star Inn at The Harbour sits straight opposite the train station

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Great food and service. Best calamari I’ve ever had and a novel way to serve it.

    Excellent service! The food was a little disappointing compared to previous meals we have had at The Star Inn The Harbour. I had the beef and scallop dish from the specials menu, the scallops were perfectly cooked however the beef was really tough. This meal was taken off our bill.

    The food was incredible. So tasty and the staff were very obliging. We loved the decoration and the safe layout of the restaurant. We would definitely visit again. We have a mixture of different oysters to start and I had one of the dishes on the specials list for the main. My partner had the surf and snout which were both super tasty.

    This was my second visit and it was nowhere as good as the first. My wife asked for fishcakes and chips i.e. she just wanted fishcakes and no vegetables or sauce, etc. The waitress said not to worry because the fishcakes don't come with anything. When they arrived, they were swimming in sauce and vegetables - exactly what she didn't want. My cod and chips were average to say the least and no better than I could have got in a tray anywhere else in Whitby. For dessert we shared a cheesecake - very ordinary to say the least - we left most of it.
