Andrew Pern, whose name is synonymous with his Michelin-starred pub, The Star Inn at Harome, has long wished to open a restaurant in his hometown and to celebrate the ingredients he grew up surrounded by and with which he began to learn to cook, even before he decided to train as a Chef at the former Scarborough Catering College.
When the opportunity arose to establish a restaurant in Whitby’s most enviable harbourside location with views towards St Mary’s Church and Whitby Abbey, Andrew grabbed it with both hands. With The Star Inn The Harbour his skill for creating stylish, atmospheric dining locations has again triumphed providing a worthy ‘sister’ for Andrew’s first Brasserie-style restaurant, The Star Inn The City in York.
The Star Inn 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 – and, of course, traditional Fish and Chips. Desserts often feature a nod towards traditional Ice Cream Parlour childhood classics, brought up to date.
A great celebration destination, the restaurant also offers a private dining room suitable for groups of in the region of ten people, as an alternative to the main dining room. Booking for groups of up to five people can be made via the restaurant’s website and for larger groups by calling 01947 821900.
