“very good pub food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Eaten here several times always very good food a great step over normal pub restaurants. Some pleasant wines and a wide selection of beers. Friendly staff I would highly recommend this retaurant I have not tried the bar menu but since its from the same kitchen I assume it is equally good.
The pork belly was excellent if you like a very rich dish.

“New locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Since moving into our new home in mid-september we thought it a good idea to explore the nearby watering hole expecting a cold welcome from some unfriendly locals. Could we have been more wrong? We were treated very well and the service, beer, and company was second to none. Very nice place, will be back very shortly

“Popular with locals and very welcoming to visitors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We tracked the Star Inn down via Tripadvisor and other research to find a dog friendly pub near the Sutton Bonnington campus of Nottingham University. The three of us, and especially our two quite wet dogs, were given a very warm welcome by the landlady and the locals alike. It was great to see varied groups of locals, families, couples, and even a table playing scrabble on an ipad, filling the cosy bar and dining area whilst we enjoyed the good quality pub grub that is on offer. The service was excellent and they were happy to help out with water for the dogs.
I am certain we will return to The Star Inn over the coming 5 years whilst our son is at the nearby Vet school and would not hesitate recommending it to other parents wanting to provide their student offspring with an overdue square meal that doesn't break the bank.

“What a gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Stumbled across the Star Inn on a recent trip to the area! It's in a perfect location not far off the M1-so people wanting to stop for a quick bite to eat- its perfect- with that said its far enough away that it's in the country side with fields either side of it! Because we had such a positive experience we actually returned for dinner a few weeks later and it was so lovely! The waitress serving us was very welcoming and accommodating, the food was truly delicious and overall we had a top night! I am hoping we can return soon and I have suggested it to my parents and other family members as a 'must' to try out!
We will be back- no doubt about it- what a gem!
