We were previous customers of Ye Olde Star, under the old management. We enjoyed the carvery a couple of years ago, as a big birthday celebration - I couldn't beleive the selection on offer - literally never seen a carvery with so much to choose from. I went home in pain (not a bad thing) I'd just eaten so much!... More

My son and I ate at the Star twice whilst visiting Alton Towers - it's the nearest pub to the theme park. The first time we ate, which was on a Friday night the place was rammed with families and the landlady seemed a bit stressed out, however the rest of the staff were lovely and we were quickly found...

We came to this pub after a day out at Alton Towers in August 2014. We were staying at The Star Camping site and as it was my husbands birthday, so I decided we would have a nice meal to finish off my husbands birthday. The first thing that got our backs up was when one of the waitresses called... More

Dropped in for some food now Ye Old Star has changed hands. What a great meal, good choice of food, staple pub favourites, good children's menu and good range of specials if you feel like something a little different. Also several real ales to choose from. Food is very fresh and locally sourced whenever possible, in addition chips were the... More

Decided to visit this pub as it is very close to camp site we were staying at. Initial impressions were good, nice layout, well furnished and very enthusiastic owner. Menu was good as it wasn't one of those menus where there's too much choice. Quite busy, so first impressions were good. Then.........the staff appeared. No people skills, very mechanical, the...

Feel like this pub has taken advise from Gordon Ramsey. Quite a small menu but a high standard of meal when served. Everything was freshly cooked and of reasonable price.

Four of us visited about 6.45pm on 29 May. No pasta left for the children's menu, chef was kind enough to come out and chat our fussy son through options and agreed to make a meal combo he would eat. (Big thanks). Meals cooked fresh to order. Restaurant full and when some guests left, tables were quickly filled again with... More

After a day at Alton Towers we were looking forward to a meal in the local pub. It may have just been because it was very busy but I was disappointed - firstly we had to wait an hour ...however not a problem for freshly prepared food we were looking forward to it. The fish and chips - greasy and... More
