Lovely country pub

We contacted the owners in advance and they kindly allowed us to stay overnight in our motorhome in their car park. We were greeted by the owner who came out to the car park to make sure we were ok and then had a lovely relaxed meal. The food was tasty and home cooked. I had pie and mash... read more

I love this place. You always get a nice meal here. Its decent home cooked pub grub. The Chicken Tarragon is to die for as are there treble cooked chips (honestly - they are the best I have ever ever had!). The ales are nice (so I am told by my husband but I enjoyed the wine - some really... More

Old fashioned pub a bit off the beaten track. Ideal for a bunch of ramblers after a long walk. Good food which appears to be home cooking. Decent ales.

When we moved to the area last year we found this pub by accident as, although it is off the beaten track somewhat, it overlooks the beautiful Copmere. We thought we would try it and found it to be a real nice "local" pub. We had Sunday lunch which was lovely. We have been back many times since and each... More

Ate Sunday lunch there and expected better for the cost. Disappointing choice of vegetables and they were not served quickly enough. The meat could have been much more tender. The atmosphere for a little country pub was delightful and the staff welcoming, but if I was to visit again I would choose a meal from the menu.

Visited here to take my 90 yr old mother to lunch before Christmas. The pub was busy and my mum found it too noisy. We were told to look at the blackboard on the wall for menus but due to people standing in front of it we could not read it. No written menu provided so barman shouted out the... More

It's difficult for me to be wholly objective here as I've known the pub for a long time and preferred it when Geoff and Cecily ran it. It was less pretentious, more friendly and altogether better. The next owners put the emphasis on food and updated the interior and changed the nature and character of the pub and the core... More

Were going to the Bell in Eccleshall but kitchen closed. Had heard of the Star Inn so gave it a try. Full beer garden and pub hosting several locals with full barstaff attention . Eventually they noticed me and yes still serving lunches. Small menu choice so roast beef and roast chicken ordered. Think they assumed the chicken was for... More

We visited for lunch and were not disappointed. The beer was in excellent condition, I had a Draught Bass which is quite difficult to find nowadays, Brewed under contract by Marston's now, but the unique Bass taste was still present. We had sandwiches and a portion of chips which were well presented,tasty and portion size was good. This pub is... More
