    I was not expecting the food to be so fantastic. It really was amazing. The flavours and freshness of the food was perfect

    Amazing service from a wonderful woman who helped us with all our questions, fabulous food that tasted incredible.....we tried our first lobster!! Made to feel very much at home, & the decor was just gorgeous. We will have it on our list of place to visit next time we are back. Thank you for a great last holiday night!

    Would only let me book a table for 2 or 5 online. We were a four. When we arrived we had to wait a while to be acknowledged and then we were put in a separate room on a huge table, which could have fit 8. They said oh we thought you were a 5, but did not offer to move us. Had to shout across the room to get the staffs attention and across the table to each other. The food was ok, but very over priced and very slow service. A brandy was £15 and £4 in the next bar we went into. Would not go again.

    Having eaten at The Star at Harome this restaurant was every bit as good. The staff were friendly and very attentive and I even got told off for pouring my own wine. The food was of excellent quality and the presentation was outstanding. We will definitely be returning on return to Whitby.

    We have visited this restaurant a good few times now and it has been excellent every time. The atmosphere is lively and busy but the waiting staff are calm and very professional. For our visits over the weekend we were fortunate to have a wonderful young waitress. Fabulous food with ‘specials’ for something a little different , for me , it’s the best restaurant in Whitby. A little more expensive than your average fish and chips but worth it.

    Fantastic restaurant, the food was amazing, all the staff were friendly and efficient. It was very well organised and social distancing was adhered to. The whole experience from the food to the service was just amazing.

    Great position, right next to the Harbour, the place was full (Covid permitted) really nice food, very good service, a little pricey but worth it. Would go again.

    Well organised in COVID measures. Food well presented and above the normal fare for Whitby. Slight error in the order, though overall well satisfied with the whole experience

    We had the bream and saffron risotto. It was excellent. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The dessert of lemon posset was outstanding- beautifully fresh.

    In the present climate, its not easy to provide a comfortable and efficient service, but staff at The Star Inn, Whitby, covered all of the bases. The meal was exceptional and service was faultless. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the restaurant and will definitely book again. First class!

    Fantastic meal right at the heart of Whitby. Amazing posh prawn cocktail and the best fish and chips I've ever had, beautifully presented in a nicely decorated restaurant. The staff were efficient; moving us from our original table when we asked because of my husband's allergy to the dogs at the next table. If you are in Whitby I would recommend a visit - you won't be disappointed!

    Lovely atmosphere despite the whole Covid piece going on. The food is all delicious with unique food pairings that really work. The menu lacks a chicken dish but to be fair it is a seafood restaurant. A little pricey but nice for a special occasion
