We came for a birthday brunch and were not disappointed. Both the service and the food were amazing. I even got gifted a slice of cake for my birthday which was a lovely gesture that made me very happy (i love my cakes :)). I will definitely return and strongly recommend you try their brunch menu! Thanks Ostara staff for such a great start of my birthday day !

It has been nearly 2 years since we last ate at Ostara. The decor has change but the relaxed atmosphere remains. The food was delicious. A small but very interesting menu with a few new and a few old favourites. I am so pleased that it has survived the last 18 months of this pandemic. I wish it’s owners and staff continued success.

We could not fault our recent dining experience here. Although at first glance the menu seemed quite limited and nothing immediately jumped out at me, when the food arrived every course was imaginative, full of flavour & delicious. The coffee with the affogato to finish was outstanding. The service was very pleasant and attentive without being intrusive and the ambience was lovely and relaxing. I look forward to returning before too long hopefully.

Great little restaurant with small but very tasty menu and incredible value for money - 2 course lunch £!5, 3 course £20. Sadly no monkfish available due to an unexpected supply issue but the melt in your mouth pork cheeks were delicious and my veggie daughter would highly recommend the Moroccan bulger wheat salad. Staff very welcoming. friendly and efficient. We'll be back.

In these difficult times Ostara are going the extra mile to provide a safe and welcoming environment to enjoy a meal in comfortable surroundings. The menu is small but very up to date, mixing some traditional items with more experimental and interesting combinations. Love it

Really glad we booked for breakfast after seeing it through the lockdown. The room is light and relaxed and the coffee was great. Breakfast-wise, the hash was excellent, the mushrooms and pesto I'd say were over seasoned and more toast would've been a good thing all around but it's a cool place with pleasant folk.
