“Excellent Quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

The food was excellent quality well prepared and presented.Could have done with slightly larger portions for the price. Good range of hand pulled beers! Staff very friendly and efficient. Would definitely consider going again but someone else can be designated driver!

“Christmas Cheer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Another great evening hosted by Ben and Lindsey. This is the third year we have attended the Christmas Carol evening. Father Christmas, Carols and reindeer followed by an excellent meal. The whole team deliver a great start to the festivities. We have brought different friends and family every time and they all want to come next year.

“Best restaurant I have ever been to - amazing gluten free!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

The star is by far the best restaurant I have ever been to and we eat out fairly regularly. I am gluten free and they are so accommodating to this and always go out of their way for me, the staff are very friendly and are all very clued up on allergies so you can ask them about anything and they are very knowledgable. They do gluten free batter for fish and chips which hardly anyone else will do and always try to change most puddings to gluten free which are fantastic. My partner who is not gluten free has tried most of the dishes on the menu and they are always delicious. I would recommend the star to anyone and would go every day if I could!

“scrumptious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

We went to the Star with family for a birthday celebration. The atmosphere is inviting and cosy, the staff are all helpful, efficient and very friendly. The menu is simple but varied and the food itself is exceptional, really really good. Having visited Michelin starred pub/restaurants this definitely knocks spots off a few!!
My only complaint, is that it gets very hot, if you go in the summer it is very very hot and even now in the winter it is a tad on the warm side.
The Star though, is without doubt worth a trip.

“Absolutely Gorgeous!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

What a lovely place this is. It may take a little extra time then normal to get there, but it really is worth it. Inside it is a typically well dressed bar and dining area, how you would expect and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. I had a pie from the bar menu - and it was presented amazingly well, but tasted absolutely sensational! Everybody needs to try the steak & ale pie from here at least once in their lives! I will be back again for another one soon. Thank you!
