Our entire Restaurant area and Bar are now open for drinks only. Opening hours are currently 11am til late daily. Owing to the major fire in our kitchen, we do not envisage serving food until February 2019. The validity of any 'Star Inn The City' voucher due to expire prior to 28th February 2019 shall be extended by six months. Please follow our social media for up to the minute news.

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!

We look forward to resuming our food offer in February 2019 when we envisage the repairs to our kitchens will be complete.

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.
