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.

On Friday and Saturday nights we turn 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.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO CATER FOR ANY DIETARY REQUIREMENTS, DISLIKES OR ALLERGIES AND WE ARE UNABLE TO OFFER ANY SUBSTITUTIONS.

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.

New Years Eve 2019 - Tuesday 31st December
We will be open on NYE with the same menu prices as usual but the matching wine flight will be part of the set menu for that evening -ie £90 per head for bread, six courses and five accompanying glasses of wine to match each course. As it falls on a Tuesday its not available to book through ResDiary as its not our usual opening hours, so if you'd like to reserve a table for NYE please email Sophie at [email protected] for more information.

We loved our evening at Stark. Putting ourselves in the chefs hands and not knowing what we were eating until we got there was part of the attraction for us. The food was divine, beautifully presented, the portion size was perfect and the menu nicely balanced. The service was fantastic and it was lovely to chat to the chef afterwards. I can see why they have a Michelin star. Look forward to visiting again.

Great little restaurant perfect infact being a chef myself greeted and seated by a very friendly host/waitress who herself was very knowledgeable about the menu and food served and the chef/owner on full view preparing our food for the evening which was absolutely amazing every coarse you could not fault. We would eat there every week if we could the food was like art on a plate a big thank you to chef and host we will be back soon.

We both thought the best dishes were the mackerel and the venison, although I particularly enjoyed the apple, almond and goats curd too. We knew that the restaurant was small but were not prepared for how small but fortunately the foursome next door didnt appear to mind us offering Cambridge as the answer to a question they couldn’t remember! Food was the main focus of the evening and we were not disappointed at all. Combinations were clever and worked exceptionally well. One downside, need to get the door fixed as it kept blowing open and it was a very cold night, however this is not meant as criticism but an observation. We are fortunate in that neither of us are fussy eaters but we applauded the attitude of we cook, you eat. Thanks for a lovely evening!

We had an excellent meal at Stark. The environment is intimate and relaxed and the vibe is great. The food was exceptional and I very much hope to return soon. We travelled down from London and drove back that evening (no wine flight) and it felt worth the journey. Thanks to the team at Stark for a great evening.

We had a great evening. The most wonderful food in a relaxed atmosphere. Ben is a master of combining flavours and Sophie made us feel so welcome. It was good to actually be able to talk to the ch3f about his dishes. We will be back.
