    Code:
    cout<<"& & & & & & & \n";
    cout<<"& * * * * * & \n";
    cout<<"& * * * * * & \n";

    You will need two for loops to do it. Just draw the filler char everytime except when your loop counter varibles == 0 or the max row/col number.

    There may be a better way to do this, but this code gets the job done.

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main() {
    	char border = '&';
    	char filler = '*';
    
    	const int ROWS = 5;
    	const int COLS = 7;
    
    	for (int i = 0; i < ROWS; i++) { 
    		if (i == 0 || i == (ROWS - 1)) {
    			for (int j = 0; j < COLS; j++) {
    					cout << border;
    			}
    		} else {
    			for (int j = 0; j < COLS; j++) {
    				if(j == 0 || j == (COLS - 1)) 
    					cout << border;
    				else
    					cout << filler;
    			}
    		}
    		cout << "\n";
    	}
    }
