Andrew Pern’s growing foodie empire started off at this “beautiful”, “charming and comfortable”, thatched 14th-century inn over two decades ago, and he has successfully maintained its reputation for “wonderful food, with superb flavours”. One or two fans tip the “brilliant à la carte” over a tasting menu that can seem “a bit out-there” to more conservative tastes, or “prefer the light and airy modern dining room to the old pub-style one”. And on the downside, there remains a minority view that it is “overpriced and living off its kudos”.

“If Carlsberg made pubs…!” then fans of Andrew Pern’s well-known destination say they would be like his thatched, 14th-century inn (which he’s run for more than 20 years) with its “roaring log fire” – a perfect setting for Pern’s ‘modern Yorkshire’ cooking, with plenty of game from the nearby moors, prepared “without pretension and yet so delicious”. It doesn’t wow absolutely everyone, though, with a minority of diners who say “while it’s very good, I can’t help feeling it’s not quite what it once was”.

“One of the nicest pubs in one of the nicest villages, with some of the best pub food in England!” – Andrew Pern’s famous “olde worlde” 14th-century thatched inn “was in the vanguard of the gastropub revolution” despite its “in-the-middle-of-nowhere” location north east of York. Nowadays the cooking remains “fabulous without being overly pretentious”“very seasonal and local (with lots of game)”.

Fans of Andrew Pern’s famous thatched inn hail “some of the best cooking in the country in a most beautiful setting” (“cosy in winter, gorgeous in summer”) at this “rustic but refined” destination – “the pub all pubs want to be when they grow up”, and “a brilliant, romantic experience”. It doesn’t win the highest ratings, though, due to some vocal refuseniks, who say “it’s not worth the hype”, and “hugely overrated”.

"What a superb venue - we came for a late lunch on New Years Eve - what appeared to be a group of shooting gents were in they were ever so polite and respectful seeing that we were dining. We were served by a lovely lady called Jen - very professional and courteous - clearly very well trained - we cannot wait to return- many thanks to the Star Inn ZTeam "
