“Beautiful setting, delicious food, excellent service. It has been a very long time since we had a Sunday lunch as good as we did here today. Beautiful setting and amazing service by Katy. Strongly recommend.“-  Claire J, June 2024

“We spent a Bank Holiday weekend in York and The Star Inn The City was recommended to us. We had the Sunday lunch, which was excellent. All of the food was excellent (and the portion sizes were certainly very generous).The service was also excellent, we were looked after throughout by Katy who made us feel very welcome and comfortable. We’d definitely go back.“-  OpenTable Diner, May 2024

“Another top quality meal. The food is outstanding and memorable. I was still drooling over the thought of the food much later that evening. Our server, Katy, was once again an absolute star. Friendly, courteous and always the right amount of attention. I would highly recommend a visit here for anyone who loves tasty fair and a really special ambiance.“-  Chris A, April 2024

“We attended our first Supper Club event. We really enjoyed the whole experience: welcome, service, food and wine pairings were all excellent. The food portions were generous and we were guilty of being unable to finish all the courses. We were sufficiently impressed to be added to the mailing list so as not to miss out on future events.“-  Matthew G, March 2024

“Perfect Sunday lunch, amazing service from Katy. Kids menu was great and lots of gluten free options including dessert for coeliac. Highly recommend, really friendly and relaxed atmosphere with excellent standard of food, drinks & service.”-  W3447YJlindsayb, February 2024

“Fantastic restaurant in the centre of York. Not far from the train station, hotels and main attractions of the city. The decor is really nice, the entrance has an inn style design and the main restaurant area has a very modern look with glass windows for walls, giving a beautiful view over the River Ouse. The food was excellent. So well presented and of high quality. The staff were very friendly and helpful and happy to give their suggestions”- Deltagolf14, February 2024


“Must eat here atleast once in your lifetime. It was an amazing dinner at the Star Inn. We had the lamb fritters for starters, chicken breast with an amazing sauce, lamp rump and that amazing blood orange cheesecake for dessert. Everything was so good, that it still makes my mouth water! We were lucky to have Jamie for service and that made it even nicer evening for us. It was his recommendation to go for the blood orange cheesecake and we are so glad that we went for it. We had been to few of the restaurants in York but I think this one is a clear winner.”- Rail Foodie, June 2024

“This is a place to celebrate any occasion; a birthday, anniversary, the fact that it’s Tuesday! This was a birthday and we had a late breakfast. As ever the staff were brilliant, the food was fabulous and the ambiance lovely.”- Keith M, June 2024

“We chose the restaurant due to being recommended on the Michelin restaurant guide and it did not disappoint. The venue is in a beautiful location and very pretty to approach when lit up in the evening. The staff were attentive and gave helpful advice when deciding what to choose from the menu. The food was fantastic, we were disappointed when we were too full for a dessert! We would definitely return if ever visiting York again in the future.”- Carol H, April 2024

“Fabulous food and venue, York’s very best. Certainly the best meal we’ve enjoyed in York. Huge Yorkshire puddings and amazing flavours over Sunday lunch. We had baked celeriac that was hugely memorable. Excellent setting and service. We hope to return soon..- Loopyloops2013, March 2024

“Decadent Birthday treat. We had a lovely evening at The Star Inn for a special occasion. The service from greeting and all through the evening was great- very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. It’s a lovely spot by the river. The menu and extras on the specials board were delicious. We were extra greedy and had three courses each. Delicious cocktails and a good wine menu too. Would thoroughly recommend.”- Yamyam21, March 2024

“Everything about this restaurant shouts quality. The location provides an idea setting at the side of the river, an old historic building given a modern and elegant transformation that delivers exceptional plates of food. We were there for breakfast and were blown away by the quality of ingredients, attention to detail “warm toast” and quality of service. I would highly recommend breakfast here and can’t wait to return one day to try out the evening menu”.- Christopher B, February 2024
