The Star Inn of Weaverthorpe in Malton is one of the most picturesque spots for traditional British dining that you’re likely to come across in North Yorkshire. This a a family-run pub and restaurant close to Castle Howard and Wolds Lavender Farm, and one that foodies as well as casual diners just love. From the new and improved menu you can expect duck breast, pork belly, giant Yorkshire pudding, as well as British classics like fish or scampi and chips. Every dish is homemade to order and produce, you can be assured, is always fresh. This is a little gem of Weaverthorpe and what British dining is all about.
Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and owner, welcome fire and beautiful food. We each had a handmade rustic pizza and it was fantastic!!! The local craft ales were well kept and served and the choice of wines are great too! Would gladly recommend but book in advance as the Star Inn is quite rightly popular.
The food was excellent and great value for money. Lovely table beside a roaring fire. Good and friendly service. Wine list had my favourites and wasnt overpriced. Couldnt fault the evening at all. If this standard is maintained I would rate the Star higher than the Triton and The Blue Bell - both extremely good local Inn/restaurants.
Great food, very competitive prices and a lovely atmosphere! Fantastic location as we was staying at the Yorkshire Wolds Glamping site situated within walking distance
Fabulous evening at the Star Inn at Weaverthorpe. A busy Friday night with about 40 covers eating and the bar was busy too. The refurbishment to the bar area just about complete and looks great. As we arrived some of the lighting was not on, there was a leak in one of the letting rooms and the Pizza Chef had been rushed to hospital with suspected appendicitis. Not to worry. There was an electrician in the house who dealt with the 'sparky bit' and pizzas were not available. Not sure what happened to the leak. Consequently there was a short wait before our order was taken - but to be fair we were asked if that was ok due to the circumstances. When our food arrived it was superb - Natchos for my wife, scallops for me followed by Beef Stroganoff and Wolds Beef and Ale pie on a bed of sweet garden peas and topped with mash and gravy. Marvellous. Will be back again soon. Oh, for wine drinkers ask about joining the loyalty club.
The food was lovely and we were made to feel very welcome, I was staying over night with my dog, who was also allowed in the eating area, but I ended up putting her in the car whilst I ate as she is a bit vocal and took a dislike to one of waitresses who seeemed a bit jumpy around her when she barked! But the food and service was great.
Very welcoming and friendly staff. Good, basic pub food. A comfortable dining room, and a nice setting in an attractive village. The only complaint is the length of time we had to wait to be served on our second visit on June 22nd. We reserved a table at 6.30 but were not served our food until after 7.30. We weren't the only people to wait for such a long time. On our first visit two days earlier there were no problems.
The food was enjoyable but we considered the wait for the main course to be served as being too long. I have been in touch with the pub/restaurant about this and our views on this obviously differ. It was a busy Saturday evening - perhaps we should try a mid-week evening next time.Nice surroundings - casual dining rather than more formal restaurant.
Lovely welcoming country pub. Would burner blazing, great service and lovely meal. Down point - more veg could be served bit measured 4 sprouts between two, 6 chanteray carrot, you do the math. Overall though great place. Will return soon. 😀
Excellent place to stay! Very comfortable suite with everything we needed. Owners were away, but we were very well looked after by Natalie. Special mention to chefs - lovely evening meal and breakfast. Great value for money.
Absolutely brilliant NYE party & meal last night. PLEASE do it again as we want to do it again in twelve months time. Lovely food, great hospitality, wonderful local people and superb value. Thankyou
