The Star Inn at Harome has finally announced that it will be reopening in 2022 following reconstruction of its former building.
The Michelin-starred gastropub took to Twitter to announce that the rebuilding of the building has begun and visitors can expect to dine inside once more from late autumn 2022- around one year after the building caught fire.
The 14th century thatched inn set ablaze back in November with ‘only ashes’ remaining of the award-winning gastropub. Nine firefighters battled through the night to keep the fire under control, but lost their battle after at least nine hours of work.
The story has attracted attention from around the world, with many recalling their time spent at The Star Inn.
Although it is still unknown exactly how the fire broke out, firefighters concluded that the blaze was a deliberate act and, at the time police interviewed a man under caution, according to the BBC.
After months of planning to rebuild and battling through the burnt down building, a new chapter has now begun for The Star at Harome.

Tagging owner and celebrated chef Andrew Pern, the tweet stated: “We are pleased to announce that WoodhouseBarry from Sheriff Hutton,have been appointed to rebuild our beloved Inn.The work starts in the next week or two to be ready for late Autumn reopening,thank you to everyone for their continued support! See you all soon“.
Located in Harome on the North Yorkshire Moors, the gastropub is just over an hour from Leeds city centre and well worth the trip upon reopening for incredible Michelin-star cuisine that won The Star at Harome a prestigious third place in the Estrella Damm Top 50 Gastropubs 2022, despite only being open for a few short months before its unforeseen closure.
It is expected that fans of the award-winning pub will receive regular updates of the rebuilding process on social media.
