The Star at Harome fire: owner Andrew Pern reveals plans to restore a 14th-century pub, including saving a unique cruck frame Yorkshire News

Listed building planning application documents submitted by chef and Harome pub patron Andrew Pern to Ryedale City Council reveal that the amount of structural damage has been found to be significantly less than first feared.

North Yorkshire Police said several groups of people were in the area when the fire broke out around 10pm on November 24 and they believe an arsonist was responsible.

Nine fire trucks were called in to deal with the fire, which resulted in extensive fire, water, and smoke damage to much of the ground, first, and second floors.

The documents state that the app “is a crucial first step in bringing the Star Inn back into use,” just weeks after the Michelin Guide announced that the restaurant had retained its star for 2022, along with another Ryedale business, Tommy Banks’ Black Swan in Oldstead. .

As part of a concerted effort to avoid scheduling issues that could cause the Star Inn to reopen in the fall, the restoration will save the building’s distinctive main frame.

Cruck framed buildings, which can be seen throughout North East Yorkshire, were primarily a medieval building technique and due to disuse and rebuilding are becoming increasingly rare, so the move to keep the main frame and replacing all other wood ancillaries on a similar basis planners are likely to welcome.

While surveyors approved the restoration of the inn’s wooden bar, the thatched roof was largely destroyed by fire. The documents propose to preserve as much of the historic structure as possible.

The documents state: “The thatched roof in particular will be replaced using traditional methods and in the meantime specialist carpentry companies have been contacted to source and supply items similar to those lost in the fire.”

The planning documents add that the building has the potential to be improved through the restoration and exposure of historic features and the removal of detrimental modern finishes, such as thick layers of paint on the front facade of the building.

The documents state: “There is a clear community and social value given the local and wider interest in the building and its history as a village pub. The pub is a landmark building in a prominent location in the village and, in more recent history, has been a destination that draws visitors to the village. The restoration of the fire-damaged building will preserve the communal value.”
