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.

It is imperative we know of all allergies or intolerances at the time of booking. We cannot cater for vegetarians, vegans or those with dairy and nut intolerance/allergies (some single nut allergies may be accepted -please email before placing a booking to confirm). We are also no longer able to cater for people who can't/won't eat meat or fish -our menu consists of two meat courses, two fish courses and two desserts. To supply entirely different courses for half of the main courses just can't be done in our tiny little kitchen unfortunately.

Some of our seating includes stools, they are very comfortable and padded with foot rests but please be aware that you may end up seated on the stools. Requests for seats rather than stools cannot be honoured. If you are unable or unwilling to sit on a stool then please do not book.

ResDiary will only show you tables we have left within the next 60 days.

Excellent food: beautifully presented and considered menu, and service. Tiny point, it would have been good to have had some kind of eye contact, welcome from Ben, the chef patron, although I appreciate he's concentrating very hard on getting it all to the excellent level he achieves. Now with a very neat loo so the trek to the pub up the road is no longer necessary!

I'd like to start by saying thank you. When we first walked in we were excited yet a little unsure about the menu with only 3 ingredients per dish - many of them were things myself and other people in the party weren't too keen on. Then you served us a treat for the tastebuds! Honestly I hate beetroot, trout, cucumber, watermelon! Yet the magic the chef managed blew my mind. We all loved every dish and the combinations were spot on. So creative and delicious. We regularly eat out, our favourite Kent restaurants being Reads in Faversham, yet this topped that by miles. Everything - absolutely everything was superb food wise, plus the cosy atmosphere and lovely waitress was the cherry on the top. The only minor thing I would add is - for non drinkers as my parents were, having some Kentish apple juice or an option of soft drinks other than water would have been their preference. This didn't take anything away from the evening though. I don't have a trip advisor account sadly but I am contemplating making one just to rave about your fabulous restaurant. Thanks again for bringing something authentic to Broadstairs. Theres nothing like it! Kate

Amazing experience with Ben and Sophie at STARK. We had eaten Ben’s food before at a pop up in Tonbridge, so when it came to celebrating my husbands birthday I knew where to book straight away! Making the journey to STARK was well worth the trip, Ben creates delicious food, beautifully presented - with interesting textures & flavours using and seasonal ingredients. Simply stunning! See you again. Laura & Alex

Really good experience, both in service and the food. Although the restaurant is very small it almost adds to the intimacy of the ocassion. The front of house service by Sophie is extremely proffessional and polished, she obviously is very knowledgable about each dish and explains the contents very well. The food from Ben is exceptional, and is worthy of any Michelin star restaurant. Both my wife and I went to the West House Restauarnt the previous week, and the food presented at Stark surpassed this. Cannot wait to go back for another great food evening

A wonderful evening. Your thoughtful attention to my allergy of shell fish was really appreciated especially as I booked a couple of months ago. Amazing food and wine course after course. Thanks for everything.

Stark is a real gem- first rate food and service with wonderful thoughtfully chosen wines. Ben continues to produce exceptional food. Surely Stark will get a star next year?! Well worth booking in advance!
