About Andrew Pern
Andrew's name is synonymous with that of his Yorkshire pub, the Michelin-starred Star Inn at Harome - a truly unique British thatched pub with low beams and wonky walls that has centuries of hospitality steeped into its timbers, believed to date back to the 14th century.Andrew acquired The Star in 1996 and has been recognised with numerous hospitality awards and accolades ever since, including the pub being one of the first in the UK to be awarded a Michelin star - It is still one of only a handful of pubs ever to be recognised by Michelin with a star.Andrew's use of local seasonal produce from Yorkshire reflects his modern take on classic British dishes and his own roots as a farmer's son from the North York Moors. He believes that the Yorkshire Moors were an idyllic place for him to live and learn about nature's larder; seafood from the North Sea; lamb, beef and pork reared with pride by neighbours; game shoots alongside the Esk Valley; and grouse from the purple-shrouded moors, all played a vital part in his culinary education.
'It really is a life's work, a mixture of autobiography and a great reflection of the very best that Yorkshire has to offer the world of gastronomy' Michel Roux.
