Coming soon… A Michelin-star escape 

Combine fine dining with luxury glamping

Stark Restaurant, now located in East Mersea, bridges the gap between fine dining and a relaxed atmosphere. With quirky features and a playlist featuring everything from Oasis to Guns n Roses, the Stark experience really is something truly special. Each course from their seasonal tasting menu will leave you feeling satisfied and excited for what’s to come. 

After your dining experience, wander back across the field to your luxury shepherd hut at Mersea Barns Glamping.  Sit by the firepit under the stars or light the log burner and snuggle up for a cosy night and a peaceful night’s sleep.

About Stark

Stark was previously the only Michelin-starred restaurant in Thanet and one of four in the whole of Kent. It is owned and run by Ben and Sophie Crittenden, who opened it in December 2016 with the aim of securing a better work/life balance and enabling Ben to enjoy more time with their three young children, Ivy, Rosa and Arlo.
