The Star Inn The City

We are pleased to confirm, following the major kitchen fire in November, that we now have some kitchen capacity, although somewhat limited. Online bookings can be made other than for 4th and 5th March 2019, when the kitchens will be closed for final equipment installations. Please do not hesitate to telephone with any booking enquiry!

Through the City Walls


The Star Inn The City

Located in the old Engine House on the edge of York’s Museum Gardens, close to the historic Lendal Bridge and Tower, The Star Inn has an enviable riverside position.

We aim to match the setting with the best produce, which God’s Own County has to offer and genuine Yorkshire hospitality for the whole package.

Finest of produce

Oxtail Soup

…A little taste of the countryside in the city!

The Breakfast Menu is available up to 11.30am for Full Yorkshires or lighter options, with the All Day Menu on offer from noon until late evening. The All Day Menu changes to follow the seasons: late winter to early spring to mark the drawing to a close of the feathered game season and looking towards spring; spring through to full summer, for the freshly-picked flavours; early autumn to late winter for the best of seasonal game, kitchen garden and orchard harvests.

Ideal for pre-theatre prandials or shopper-sustenance is our daily-changing Market Menu, priced at £17 for two courses or £22 for three and served noon to 7pm, Mondays to Thursdays and noon to 6.30pm on Fridays.

Riverside Location

Unequalled Riverside Location…

Situated alongside York’s historic Lendal Bridge over the River Ouse, The Star Inn The City is within easy walking distance of York Station and, via Museum Gardens or the riverside path, Marygate Carpark.

The Restaurant’s Terrace is the perfect location for fair weather pre- or post-dinner drinks, watching the river flow by. Owing to the vagaries of the climate, advance bookings are not taken.

Make a reservation

We are pleased to confirm that we can now accept online and telephone restaurant reservations for bookings from 11th March 2019. We remain open daily from 11am til late for drinks only.
