I was invited to review renowned York restaurant The Star Inn The City with my daughter and grand-children during the half-term holidays.
We were treated to canapés and drinks whilst the children tested out the new kids menu aka The Startlets Menu.
Entering The Star Inn the City, York City Centre
The magic started whilst walking under an archway in the city walls to find The Star Inn The City sitting proudly by the river.
My first impression was that care had been taken with each table decorated with a unique ornamental gourd.
I loved the prawn cocktail lettuce boats and select artisan breads.
My favourite part was the dessert, the bramble mousse topped with honey and pumpkin seed granola-so nice to have such a seasonal dish from fruits of autumn.
Here's how my grand-children and daughter got on with their food:
It was a special time in such a fantastic space with glass walls allowing you to keep cosy but feel part of the autumn river and park scene.
After being well looked after by friendly staff we all had a lovely sunny walk along the river before we headed over the park to see St. Mary’s Abbey ruins.
The Star Inn The City is not just beautiful inside but it’s set in a very pretty natural setting close to York’s amazing historical sites.
A huge thank you to, The Star Inn The City, Kate from Avocado Events and Ben from York on a Fork for hosting. It was great to meet Orange Kite First Aid, Harrogate Mama, Helpful Mum, York Mumbler, Families Online, Little Vikings and everyone else. My Grandchildren loved using the Doddle Cutlery too!
