A renowned pub with rooms has been crowned Inn of the Year at the “the Oscars of the hotel industry”.

The Star Inn at Harome took the title in The Good Hotel Guide’s Cesar awards.

The review states: “This chocolate-box-pretty-thatched village inn is infused with wit – the bar filled with odds and ends; a billiard table at the foot of a bed – but chef/patron Andrew Pern’s Michelin-starred cooking is seriously good.”

The Star at Harome “unique nine-bedroomed hotel” is situated across the road from the pub, which is under an hour away from Teesside and situated a couple of miles outside of Helmsley.

All nine rooms are individual, and many have quirky features, such as a bath at the end of the bed and a rope-slung bed.

One room even has a snooker table, while another has its own piano.

Owned by Andrew Pern , The Star Inn has been awarded a number of accolades over the years.

It held a Michelin Star consistently from 2002 to 2011, and then regained it in 2015. It has also been voted one of the UK’s top pubs to enjoy in the summer by The Times and was named the best gastropub in the UK in 2017.

Named after Cesar Ritz – founder of Hotel Ritz in Paris and The Ritz in London – the awards are known as the Oscars of the hotel industry and are presented to hotels which have demonstrated excellence in their field.

Adam Raphael and Ian Belcher, co-editors of The Good Hotel Guide, said: “This year’s 2019 Cesar winners have demonstrated excellence at every turn, providing guests with delicious food and warm hospitality.

“They have also succeeded in getting the all-important basics right, from a comfortable mattress or very good ambient lighting to that vital but often overlooked welcoming atmosphere and smooth service.”
