Starling Independent Bar Cafe Kitchen
Pop into Starling for a morning brew and you could easily end up staying until bedtime. After all the coffee machine is dialled in and always ready for action until closing time.
Add a phenomenal selection of 16 draught beers, a well stocked beer fridge, a mean gin shelf and stunning fine wines, you could easily lose a day at this eatery-bar-coffee house which extends over several floors and a new outdoor area.
On the food front, hand-crafted Neapolitan style pizzas are the big draw, but the locally sourced brunch menu is also a winner and available every day from opening time.
Food is served all day every day until 9pm.

Enjoyed our halloumi and citrus salad / bang bang chicken salad
Coffee good. Nice service. Recommended
I love this place I’m surprised they aren’t fed up with me
My husband and I had the Welsh Rarebit for lunch which was delicious. The staff were friendly, attentive (without being overbearing) and hard working. Will definitely go back!
Love this place I’m surprised they aren’t sick of the sightof me.
I love this place they keep letting me in which is a benefit lovely staff nice atmosphere great pizzas
This was one of the best cafes I’ve ever been in and the staff were absolutely lovely and so accommodating- Jill that served us was so kind and nothing was to much trouble - love the fact they cater so well for vegan/plant based people as well and the oat milk cappuccino was the best ever so thank you.
Lovely atmosphere. Warm and friendly welcome. Great menu. Brilliant service, can’t fault the team at Starling, fantastic work everyone!
First experience and will definitely be back. Brilliant service, amazing food and a really nice atmosphere
We both had pizza, my Husband is coeliac, therefore he's gluten free. he said his was the nicest he'd ever tasted & I had to agree with him. The pizza base was thin, crisp & tasted so good, they make their own which explained the quality. We had loads of cheese on them too. I had the half pizza which was bigger than I thought but an ideal size for me, ate it all. My smoothie was also very enjoyable. Servers were very friendly, & efficient, we would happily eat there again & highly recommend the pizza.
Friendly atmosphere, staff helpful and efficient, lovely food.
Come here and be happy. There's nothing missing. Top coffee (inc exceptional decaff); superb creative and tasty brunch and lunch options. Spacious and somehow both buzzy and laidback, Perfect for working laptop mornings (even VCs) and relaxed lunch and brunches - with excellent fizz and wine options.
And pizzas are unsurprisingly top drawer - creative, well made and very original and independent. And top light, but perfect substance of dough. As an evening/night bar it's cool with top craft beer options.
And the best soundtracks in town. Chosen by the people who more than even all the above make Starling so fab - its lovely, kind and fun staff.
Can't imagine not wanting to come here all morning every time I'm in Harrogate.
Good service and great food.
Would highly recommend
A delicious pre-Christmas shopping brunch; thoroughly recommend!
Always great - thanks to the team. Good food and drinks and welcoming to many
A great place for a family meal. Good choice of food and drink
Good beer, good food, great understanding of gluten free requirements. Definitely would go again
Lovely late lunch pizzas and meatballs. Friendly service. Very good value for money. Nice festive ambience, but a little draughty on a old day. Thank you. We'll be back.
Great food, we were pleasantly surprised at how much space there was upstairs!
Great place to eat and meet. Different menus choices and drinks recommended to all
Hi the food was lovely and the service by our waiting staff was great but there was a 40 min wait on food when we arrived and as a place that advertises breakfast, this could have been better.
Excellent Sunday brunch - full breakfast was amazing 😁.
You do need to book in advance. Several parties were turned away as they were full.
Lovely. Great selection of beer and wine, fab pizza with some interesting options to try. Service is fab.
Tasty food, great service and very reasonable. I had a Popeye and Olive small pizza and it was perfect.
I’d like to know why the cuckoo clock cuckoos at 20 to the hour.
Had lunch with a friend and we both enjoyed our meals and the service was very good. The only slight complaint we had was that it was a bit chilly inside
Enjoyed lunch at the Starling which is always our go to place as we know everything is covered from the menus and staff. I had a pizza and my daughter enjoyed salmon with sourdough bread both arrived hot and tasty . Well done perfect
Lovely food, very tasty and very good value. Will be back.
Fab place, delicious food, great service & lovely atmosphere
Lovely healthy salads (highly recommend the bang bang chicken) eaten but was very tempted by the eggs benedict- will try those next time!!! Relaxed brunch/lunch spot, great when meeting up for friends shopping trip!
Good service, fab pizza's ! Dog friendly , already booked again 😊
We had the rarebit on sourdough. It was a little overdone but did taste good and not bad enough to complain about at the time. Also at that price for what is predominantly cheese on toast i would have hope for a little refinement or a nice side salad. Beer was excellent as were the smoothies
Yeah, pretty good. I wouldn’t say spectacular but food was good and nice atmosphere with a mixed group of customers
I’d go back again so give it a try
Becoming a favourite for brunch with friends and family.
Service very good, all the food coming through from the kitchen looked very tempting. Who doesn’t love a breakfast ?
Second time eating at Starling. Didn’t disappoint
Booked for brunch on a wet windy day as it was dog friendly. What a find - food was great - hot, great standard and exactly as described. The staff were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble - all in all very, very welcoming. Thank you - we will be back when next in Harrogate. Superb experience - nothing flash simple hospitality delivered well.
Great pizza and beer
The wife loves the cider here.
Staff made you feel welcome
Good choice for breakfast menu and the food was lovely.
Beautiful food and we were there for two meals. Loved jackfruit wrap and soup and pizzas were excellent as were drinks - expect the hot chocolate tasted like it was made with water not milk, so sweet and hot, but thin. He still drank it all.
Superb pit stop if in town and want a great coffee & bite to eat! Great selection of food & brunch until 2.30! What’s not to love!
Pizzas are great as always, you can have half size or full, equally as delicious
