Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy (Mission Statement)

Burnt Out Stars are an innovative company crafting beautiful experiences.

We are dedicated to providing truly pure and vibrant food. Requiring not only a sound approach procedurally to buying, storing & handling, but an intuitive approach moment by moment to the daily use of our wholefoods in recipes and on the plate.
As we constantly ask the question:
Is it fresh, pure and  nourishing?
Are we happy with this?
Will the customer love this?
We honor the earth, farmers and ourselves through our use of pure organic ingredients, eco-friendly products & sustainable business practices.
On events we hand-pick seasonal farmer’s market produce and local organic ingredients whenever possible. In fact all of our menus are designed with seasonality in mind and especially hand-tailored to you, expertly prepared, always creative and richly organic.
Because we craft our dishes from scratch using pure ingredients, we can easily meet special dietary needs such as vegetarian, vegan, Kosher-friendly, gluten-free, and allergy-sensitive meal plans — all prepared with no chemicals or preservatives added.
You and your team will immediately taste the difference.

This is our northern soul.

01.Front of house

Northern grit & decor

Our Front of House display and ethos has a classic hint of the European 1970’s/early 80’s but hang on a minute, this is not some glam rock tribute here, no, we personally grew up in what we call the ‘best decades ever’ and our subtle influences can be seen everywhere.

We use shades of black and white, plastics and metal, all very minimalist and classy with a hint of vintage.

Burnt Out Stars believe and promote the following principals:

All disposables are certified compostable.

All tea, coffee, hot chocolate, sugar used is Fair-trade. All meat/dairy is a minimum standard of British Red Tractor, British free range, RSPCA Freedom Food or certified organic.

We only serve fish that is listed on the Marine Conservation Society’s ‘Fish to Eat’ list.


Inspired menu’s to rattle your taste buds!!

Try an updated ‘London pie ‘n’ mash with mushy peas/bubble & squeak’ or maybe ‘organic chicken skewers with saffron, smoky chili & yoghurt’. How about a classic (retro school days) dessert such as ‘Ginger sponge or Jam roly poly’.

04.True Responsiveness

We like to feel we are approachable on site, if you have any queries or requests for something ‘not on the menu’ please tell us and we will do our best. This might be flexible opening hours, a specially cooked meal for allergen intolerance, maybe you need a kettle or you want to borrow some sugar!!

Where here to help.
