Michelin-star restaurant 'reduced to ashes' by thatched roof blaze
Telegraph, 25 Nov 2021
One of the best-known restaurants in the north of England has been "reduced to ashes" following a blaze in its thatched roof.
More than 40 firefighters were called to the 14th century Star Inn at Harome - the Michelin-starred restaurant near Helmsley, North Yorkshire, which has been cited as one of the best in the UK.
North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said nine appliances from Helmsley, Kirkbymoorside and Pickering were called to tackle the burning thatched roof and seven remained at the scene on Thursday morning.
The Star at Harome has regularly featured in lists of the best restaurants and gastropubs since the arrival of chef and patron Andrew Pern 25 years ago.
