It’s not that kind of place. No children’s menu. But small and boutique and if you ask they’ll cook you something to sort you out (they did scrambled eggs for us)

At Starks it's all about serving fresh, tasty food using the best ingredients. During the day we serve breakfast from 9am and a simple cafe style lunch from 12 noon. In the evening we set the tables, light the candles and offer a vibrant, seasonal dinner menu. On Sunday we now do a fantastic Sunday Lunch, served from 12-3pm
