The Star Restaurant and Bar has been established for just over 1 year and it has been an absolutely amazing journey so far for everyone involved.
In a very short space of time The Star already claims to offer the Best Roast in Essex and is, we believe, a dining experience unrivalled in the area. Situated in the delightful, historic village of Thaxted, not far from Stansted Airport, our 15th century inn has undergone extensive refurbishment and is now a stylish French restaurant, combining an intimate ambience with old world charm.
Owner, Marc Laverriere, brings many years of experience and his passion for good food and wine to your dining table:
“Our main vision is to take people with us on our culinary journey. Gastronomy, for us, is a daily celebration and life style. We strive to create the finest of French cuisine using only quality ingredients, locally sourced where possible, accompanied by the best wine, thoughtfully chosen to complement each dish.”
A few words from Patrick our Head Chef:
“My style of cooking is always evolving using fresh, seasonal produce, especially wild game, seafood and exciting new ingredients. Working with mother nature is a gift and it is at the forefront of what we do.”
For a light lunch or a leisurely evening meal, there’s a certain “Je ne sais quoi” about The Star that you really should experience.
