We are open for dinner only, Wednesday through to Saturday from 6PM.
Please note: ResDiary will only show you tables we have left within the next 60 days.
If you have any general enquiries please email us at [email protected] We are very rarely able to answer the restaurant phone and return messages so we work mainly through email.
Due to the distancing restrictions within restaurants and the size of Stark, we are only able to take bookings for tables of two at the moment. Hopefully this will change soon, but we need time to run this new service and work out how best to accommodate additional/larger bookings in the coming weeks.
Now, more than ever, it is imperative that customers stick to their booking time of either 6pm or 8.30pm as we need time to serve the meal at a comfortable pace, as well as time in between the sittings to clean everything before we begin again.
A late arrival -for any reason- may result in an incomplete meal if the kitchen can't serve all six of the courses in the time left after your arrival. However, this will not alter the price of the menu as all ingredients will still have been bought and prepped for each booking so please factor in time to travel, potential traffic and parking searches when planning your journey to us. We want every single customer to have the best experience possible at Stark and we do everything in our power to try and make that happen.
We apologise in advance for having to be even stricter than usual with timekeeping, but Stark is so small and delicately run that even the slightest time deviation (earlier or later by more than 5 minutes) can drastically alter the flow of it all for the kitchen which, in turn has a knock on effect for all customers, not just those most recently arrived.
Bookings are now available to reserve from Wednesday 5th August 2020.
We thank you for your understanding and continued support during these uncertain times.****************************************
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.
Amazing food! Simply wonderful experience
Lack of Availability of more bread during meal a problem.
We absolutely loved the experience! We could tell the food was prepared with passion and care. I could actually see the chef at work from where I was sitting, and admired his focus! The dishes looked wonderful and tasted delicious. Everything worked really well together (although I was a bit unsure about the goat curd in one of the puddings). The waitress was charming and the atmosphere relaxed. Although we were sitting quite close to other customers, we managed to feel like we were the only ones there. We'll definitely be back in the future!
Brilliant food, very personal and friendly service. Would recommend to anyone! And everyone!!
Wonderful food with accompanying wine and great service, only minor issue, when serving the wines it would of been a nice touch to say what they were when pouring Definitely recommend and would go again
amazing food as always.
Amazing food! Nice to be able to eat in a michelin starred restaurant without all the pretentious atmosphere. Please don't change!
Spectacular evening. Having spent months looking forward to it and booking an entire week in Broadstairs just for this experience, it didn’t disappoint. Could not fault the food, the service the wine flight or the atmosphere. What a treat.
Beautiful little gem hidden away in the seaside town of Broadstairs. Lovely staff, lovely atmosphere with great ambiance and an all round brilliant experience.
Incredible food ... beautifully intimate setting! True hidden gem! And absolute must experience!!
The food was unique, well presented and on the whole tasty. The Goats Curd, Beetroot, Rhubarb was a challenge, whereas I liked the contrast in flavours and texture, the smokiness of the dish inhibited my wife from enjoying it, in-fact I finished hers as well. The chosen wine went well it’s each course and either brought out the intensity of the flavours or contrasting them. Although we were aware of the intimacy of the restaurant, it was too intimate and conversations had to be moderated. It was nice that as we were the first cover seated, we did have 30 minutes on our own, after which time more tables were filled and holding a face to face chat became more demanding. I was pleased that we tried the venue and were able to compare and contrast with Ramsey’s, The Fat Duck, Diner, Fifteen Cornwall, The Hand and Flowers, Ristorante La Tortuga, Reads, Fordwich Arms, etc. We wish you the best of luck in the future, you both have obviously put your heart and soul into this new and exciting adventure.
3rd visit and definitely not the last. Outstanding food as always. Service faultless, dishes innovative and delicious. Looking forward to next visit.
