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.

    Arrived and friendly service began. Taken to our table and drinks order taken. Soon after our very friendly and down to earth waitress came to take our order. Starters arrived. Salmon infused in Whitby Gin was a flavour explosion whilst my partner’s Chicken wings were delicious too. A nice gap was then enjoyed before our main courses arrived. The food was very tasty but could have been a little warmer. It was only after a late night chat that I found out my partner’s Smoked Haddock with Bubble and Squeak was not too good at all. The Bubble and Squeak was cold which lead to the Haddock going cold. I know we should have dealt with this at the time but........we didn’t. My partner isn’t one to make a fuss but I told her that, in future, tell me. Expensive food should be perfect in every way, which wasn’t the case. But, this won’t stop us returning to The Star In The Harbour.

    The sirloin steak was perfect tasted amazing. But our drinks took 10-15 mins to come, I had finished my drink before my food came and was never asked if everything was okay and if we needed out whilst eating our food, so only had 1 drink. Finished our steaks and it had taken another 20 mins for our plate to be removed. I dont think this is a problem with the staff, it that they are under staffed and should employ more staff.
