Providing an unmatched, scenic setting for patrons to enjoy from season to season, The Star Inn The City is an award-winning brasserie located on the edge of York Museum Gardens, overlooking the River Ouse.

In-line with the vision of Michelin-starred Chef Patron Andrew Pern, we aim to provide York diners with a little taste of the countryside and our celebrated menu showcases the seasonal harvests that God’s Own Country has become renowned for over the decades.

Our succulent starters, mouth-watering mains and decadent dessert utilise the freshest and finest locally-sourced produce and we believe that all our dishes are best enjoyed with a tasty tipple, which is why we’ve developed an incredible Drinks’ Menu.
