All day dining in a stunning location by York's River Ouse.

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. 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. Daily Specials include catch-of-the-day fresh fish and dishes featuring limited season ingredients.
