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

It would be lovely to welcome you back to The Star again soon should you be passing, we have a brand... More

After a period of closure The Star has now re-opened with new owners Adam and Heidi We went quite early on in the evening and there were a few teething problems which are to be expected, however this was made up for by an excellent meal (WELL DONE CHEF)!!! Only downside was the wait but at least we could sample... More

We escaped from Splash Landings Hotel to eat here. Restaurant is separate to pub and quickly filled to half full on a Tuesday night. Very nicely decorated and good menu. Food very nice and freshly cooked albeit a bit slow but you are warned that things are cooked from fresh. I agree the ladies serving could be a bit happier... More

The food was mediocre but the prices where very expensive. A very limited choice includes. Burgers. Steak and pasta (which was an extra £2)... More
