We're local, and having read the reviews on here had planned to visit for some time. What a disappointment:-( When we arrived we walked into an uncomfortably cold dining area. The young guy at the bar showed us to our table and was, to be fair, friendly and pleasant throughout our visit. The atmosphere was really quite uncomfortable. The total... More

Pleasantly surprised at nice, modern tasteful interior in lounge bar which put us at ease straight away. We chose fish & chips and vegi burger. My battered fish was cooked to perfection and delicious! However, the hand cut chips are the best I... More

We have just had a really good meal at the Star. The home roasted gammon was superb and my wife's Spicy chicken was very nice indeed. Felt sorry for the young lady who was on her own but she was very friendly and it did not affect the service. Would definitely visit again.
