As well as offering recipes from the restaurant's favourite tasting menu dishes and additional tapas recipes, STARK provides readers with an insight to the world of cheffing. This book pulls no punches, featuring a raw and emotional story of Ben's life as a chef, from the start of his career as an apprentice, to how he came to be Thanet's first Michelin-starred chef.

Booking terms and conditions

*IMPORTANT* *PLEASE READ!*

Stark is a small, independent restaurant relying upon bookings being honoured by our guests or sufficient notice being given of any required changes to reservations. We therefore kindly request that diners give us at least 36 hours notification of cancellation, otherwise a charge of £25 per person will be made. Cancellations of less than 24 hours' notice is subject to the full menu price if the table cannot be re-filled before the reservation time. The charge will be held in a secure PCI-DSS compliant vault. Likewise, the full cost of the tasting meal will be charged per person if you fail to show up to your reserved table. Unfortunately, our experience of parties failing to cancel or amend bookings dictates this precaution is now necessary.

 

Unfortunately, our experience of parties failing to cancel or amend bookings dictates this precaution is now necessary. You will receive an email confirmation once the booking has been successfully made, and again 48 hours prior to your booking time. Please ensure you type your email address correctly when booking as the confirmation emails are automatically sent to whichever address you have entered.

By making a reservation at Stark you agree to our reservation and cancellation terms. We wish to thank you for your understanding of our very small business and look forward to welcoming you to Stark.

***Coronavirus update***

 

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 we need time to run this new service and work out how best to accommodate additional/larger bookings in the coming weeks.

Now, more than ever, it is imperative that customers stick to their booking time of either 6pm or 8.30pm 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.

 

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. 

 

Bookings are now available to reserve from Wednesday 5th August 2020.

 

We thank you for your understanding and continued support during these uncertain times.
