About Stark

*************************Coronavirus update*************************

ALTERED BOOKING TIMES -As a result of the Government's latest baseless decision to impose a 10pm curfew on restaurants, I have had to alter ALL booking times. We have had to change our service entirely so none of the prvious timeslots exist any more. Please check your emails for notifications of this or email me at [email protected] if you're unsure of the alterations.

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 until there is new information from the government regarding distancing etc we are unable to change this.

Now, more than ever, it is imperative that customers stick to their booking time of either 5:30pm, 7pm or 8pm 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 and then adhere to the curfew.

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.

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 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 (YES, THIS INCLUDES VEGETARIANS AND VEGANS!!), DISLIKES OR ALLERGIES AND WE ARE UNABLE TO OFFER ANY SUBSTITUTIONS IF YOU STILL CHOOSE TO COME IN. THIS ALSO INCLUDES RELIGIOUS DIETARY RESTRICTIONS.

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.

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

Stark is just fabulous. It is a dining experience. Ben's food is sublime - the textures and flavours, thought and expertise that goes into preparing and serving the Tasting Menu is outstanding. The wine pairings really compliment the food. The service from Chloe is excellent and a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. We were fortunate to get a cancellation on the last night before lockdown and we can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. We look forward to supporting Ben when he reopens. Thank you.

What can I say, from start to finish the whole experience was amazing! From the service to the amazing decor to the music playing which was just our style. The food was absolutely delicious, we had the matching wine flight which complemented the food perfectly. Thank you for a perfect end to my birthday celebrations we will be back for sure!

Third time at Stark but first in the “larger” space. Ben’s food gets better all the time and is full of flavour and texture. Everything on the menu was a hit and lovely service from Cleo too. Thanks guys and good luck as we head into further uncertainty

Stark is the most special, amazing restaurant I have ever had the pleasure of dining at. This was our second time with Ben & Cleo and it was even better than last time. Ben’s passion, creativity and flare is encompassed in the most perfect and beautiful plates of food. Service is phenomenal and great wine pairings. You won’t be able to keep us away.

Food was amazing! Ben was so busy with the food prep, but a little eye contact just to tell him how amazing it was would have been nice lol. Couldn’t fault it, will be going back as soon as the next selection of dishes and wine flight lands... xx

We have been lucky enough to eat here on several occasions and each time has been different but all have been fantastic. Ben has such a passion for his cooking and this comes over in the quality and imagination of his cooking and presentation. Eating at Stark is like having a personal chef, we can’t wait to go back.

Best meal we have had in a very long time. Every course was delicious and we both loved every part of the evening. We will definitely book again when we are back in the area. The final course is the best dessert I’ve ever had. Thank you so much.

We had a wonderful meal. A really pleasant experience. I hope that current restrictions ease soon and allow to seat more than 6 customers at a time. You deserve to serve far more than that! We’ll be back!
