About Stark

Stark is an intimate, 10 cover restaurant offering only one, six course tasting menu and the option of matching wines. There are a select few other drinks to choose from, if the wine flight isn't for you but we advise you give it a try as it makes for a wonderfully care-free meal and a great experience.
Stark is a very intimate, relaxed restaurant, whose only demand of you is that you sit back, trust us with your dinner and enjoy the experience.

As of April 2019, on Friday and Saturday nights we will be turning tables to accommodate more booking enquiries. You have two and a half hours from your booking time to enjoy your meal, so please be aware of this and arrive for your reservation on time.

I took my boyfriend to Stark for his birthday and we both absolutely loved it. It was perfect for a special occasion - the food and wine were excellent, the service was lovely, and the fact it only seats 10 people made it feel extra special. It's amazing value for money well worth a trip to Broadstairs for. I've recommended Stark to family and friends and would love to go back sometime. Thank you very much Sophie and Ben!

Me and my boyfriend had a great night at stark for my birthday. Really great atmosphere and intimate without being on top of other diners. Amazing food and good value - particularly when paired with the matching wines. Having just moved to the area this was a great introduction to the local culinary scene. Thanks!

This was our second visit to Stark which was well overdue and the experience certainly lived up to our expectations. All the courses were absolutely first class and we chose the wine flight which was wonderful. This is a fabulous restaurant and we are extremely lucky to have Stark on our doorstep.

What a wonderful way to spend an evening. The food was incredible, and we are still trying to pick a favourite dish. Cant wait to return.

The meal and wine pairing was exceptional. I didn’t mind the rustic feel and things like reusing my knife and fork didn’t bother me. My only feedback is that I was really surprised that coffee wasn’t on offer. Not only is coffee a nice way to finish a meal but it’s a great way for a business to make money for nothing. Honestly though, we have eaten at lots of Michelin star restaurants and I would struggle to think of any that served better food then we had at STARK.

Got to be one of the best restaurants around - Sophie and Ben create a fantastic intimate atmosphere and superb, modern and beautifully balanced dishes across their changing set menu. Well paced, great wine selection, friendly unfussy service; just an all round top experience.

What a lovely evening we had at Stark! The food was absolutely delicious and for the effort and thought that goes into it, well worth the price. We had the wine pairing which enhanced each dish. Service was great and relaxed and each dish was explained.

This was our first visit having heard great reviews and we weren't disappointed. It's a small restaurant, but that gives it a charm and makes the evening somehow feel special. The food was great, there wasn't anything I wouldn't eat again and Sophie was a charming host and server.

Great service, very intimate and comfy. We liked the cozyness of the restaurant. Food was incredible and every course was unique, fresh and delicious! They have New Zealand wine which we were really happy about :) Great food, great service, highly recommended!
