Late 2013 The Star Inn The City opened on the bank of The River Ouse in York. Sourcing most of their produce from Yorkshire, we had to check it out in its first week of opening and were wowed. Andrew Pern has created a masterpiece.
It has since been a first ‘port of call’ of the day to any outing to York and last week we returned once more on a family birthday for their divine waffles and pancakes with coffee.
You will love the country decor; clever touches here and there that simply make you smile. It has the feel of home away from holiday home… log-fires, home-cooked food like the kind some clever member of your family cooks on special occasions (if you’re lucky!) It is light, airy and spacious so you have room to go and be yourself.
We have yet to experience it in summer, when the decking overlooking the river will provide a glorious setting for chilled afternoon drinks; yet to taste lunch or evening meal. But all in good time, I get the feeling The Star Inn the City will be in the City of York for many more visits.
