Really goooood food and atmosphere, would go again
Lovely staff! Miserable outside but we kept mostly dry with the covering. Pizzas always great!
Excellent outdoor area, well covered from the elements and well ventilation. Good COVID measures. Excellent food and service. Highly recommended
We really enjoyed our visit, we had our two young children with us and the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating. The food was lovely and the outside setting was lovely. We are already planning another visit.
Amazing food and great service! Reasonably priced. Shamed it rained but I’ll definitely be back when we can sit inside :)
Perfect brunch spot, high quality coffee and very friend, attentive staff. Thoroughly recommend
Me and my friends went for brunch. The food was incredible and the service was great. I would definitely go again.
Late booking day before we arrived. Loved it. Simple menu pretty much brunch versus pizza but well cooked and presented. Excellent range of crafty type beers and ciders and sufficient choice of wines. Sat outside, obviously, on real grass which was very wet but what can you do. Excellent service, fair prices, garden is covered and has heaters. Tables across the road didn’t look as inviting as garden so maybe request garden table if you can. Overall can’t fault it and would definitely book again.
Lovely covered outdoor garden area with heaters, well spaced out. Food was lovely and service spot on.
One of my favourite places in town for coffee, pizza, healthy food and beer. Their friendly staff and lovely owner make it an all round winner. I love the nest courtyard as, even though it isn't large the atmosphere was great
Great that there were heaters in the outdoor area, made it much more comfortable on a cold April day!
Food was delicious and really reasonably priced.
A great selection of beers. The new undercover seating area has been very nicely done. My mate had a pizza which he said was fantastic. The staff know about the beers and will answer specific questions. I would definitely recommend.
Great food as always in the newly formed beer garden. The weather was awful, but we stayed dry throughout !
Delicious food, beautiful coffee and extremely friendly staff! Couldn’t fault it! I would suggest some sort of music as when sitting outside the extractor fan was quite loud so it’s all you could hear!
Good atmosphere, good outdoor space, recently overhauled.
We were really pleasantly surprised when we arrived at The Starling Independent and were shown through to the lovely sheltered area out the back. We were a table of 6 and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the food and drink. The staff were brilliant, friendly and efficient. All felt very safe with regards to COVID. Would definitely eat here again.
Lovely little hidden garden area. Shelter from any rainy days and couple of heaters if gets too chilly. Lots of menu options and food presentation was really nice
Very good independent eatery that has adapted well and provided a lovely outdoor seating area that features a mural wall of starlings. Menu so comprehensive offering brunch, sandwiches, pizzas, salads etc.... Good fresh ingredients used that are important in making delicious food. Waiting staff are so friendly, polite and helpful.
Lovely place, service and great beer! Perfect in the sun.
Great back garden with real grass, lovely food and service
All great as usual, social distancing well thought out. Great for kids.
Delicious food - the full english and veggie breakfasts were both delicious, coffee excellent too. Fast friendly service and lovely garden out back. Recommend!
Starlings nest outside beers and dining brilliantly executed and good fun. Great beers, excellent pizzas and outstanding and friendly service.
Lovely garden at the back of Starling which is a great sun trap and been very nicely done out to make a cosy comfortable space for a coffee, snack or meal.
Love it here! Dog friendly and staff are great. Brilliant selection of drinks and the food is always good whether it’s pizza or brunch
Best selection of beer in Harrogate. AlwYs a dark, always a sour. Food is just gorgeous. Very friendly staff. Brilliant.
Lovely little hidden gem of a place. Gorgeous garden. Chilled atmosphere for breakfast/brunch/coffee/afternoon glass of wine/after work beer...........
Wonderful food and service
Outdoor area beautiful (I even had to ask the paint colour used!)
As always great atmosphere x
Went for brunch which was a nice experience and being in the courtyard outside of the cafe seemed to block out the noise of a busy Harrogate.
Delicious brunch, gorgeous outdoor area, friendly and courteous staff. We will be back!
We were really pleased that the Starling has kept their very high standards of cuisine (I love their vegetarian brunch) now that the lockdown is coming to an end. Their use of the new outdoor space at the rear of the building proved excellent for our needs.
One of the things we've missed the most over lockdown is our Saturday morning breakfasts here! Food is so good and service is spot on. We've been coming for about 3-4 years and we are NEVER disappointed 🥰
Starling offers a great mix of craft beer, good wine (if that's your taste), coffee and brunch during the day or pizza + at night. Congratulations to Simon and the team for creating a fantastic outdoors space in the nest area courtyard. Beautiful "living wall" and turf look fantastic, and the mural work is outstanding. I admire the tenacity of everyone to get through and move forward this year! Pizzas have even grown in size, service is excellent and the beer is still great. Thank-you team Starling!
Such a lovely beer garden with great atmosphere and sunny too!
Really enjoyed my lunch at Starling... food was wonderful, service spot on
Pizzas were lovely, good beer choice. I had eggs Benedict and the eggs were hard and the hollandaise was split (first world problems I know!)
Outstanding as always. Best pizza anywhere! Well recommended
Great service and drinks, weather not the best so cut our visit short!
Lovely setting outside for lunch
Fab staff, friendly and super hot on the cleaning!
Amazing pizza and poutine too!! Thank you
Great to be back, very well organised, lovely food and good choice of beer!
