Fantastic food, fast service. Paul was great to us and we will 100% be coming back. They have a massive garden and there are 100s of acres to explore in the village of Sulgrave. The rooms are cosy and warm and there is wifi in case anyone is worried about being shut off.

Really nice owners, who have run this place for around 30 years. Some quirky décor touches, good selection of ales and superb food. Welcomed with tea and coffee on arrival, helpful and attentive hosts, a great place to stay for a night or two, as an excellent value B&B and restaurant

I can't recommend the Star Inn enough! 9 of us stayed for my birthday and Paul opened up the restaurant and bar especially for us. The food was absolutely delicious with brilliant service. The rooms were extremely comfortable with plenty of room for the family. Will be going back in the new year! Thanks Paul!

The Star is a funny place but it's hard not to have a warm feeling as you leave. The rooms and bathrooms hark back to the 70's with twin bar fires, ancient light fittings and bathroom fixtures. However, supper in the old bar and breakfast in the family kitchen are superb and the couple running it who are charming, warm... More

What a fantastic place to stay!!!! I highly recommend anyone to stay here. The food is great, the beer is awesome (especially Hooky) and the rooms are clean and bright. Paul and Sue are fantastic hosts and nothing seems to be too much trouble. The atmosphere is cosy and inviting. Thanks guys, we will be back.

Where do I start when writing my review of The Star Inn? What a little treasure it is. Calm, peaceful, relaxed, comfortable and much much more. The hosts are a delightful charming couple and just could not do enough to ensure our comfort. The Inn itself is a museum in it's own right, and (I was told) with it's very... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The three hundred year old 'Star Inn' sits in an idyllic village on the borders of South Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire, ideally located for visiting the many attractions available in the heart of England or simply escaping for a peaceful and relaxing weekend in the country. Believed to be the only know pub to be visited by the legendary actor John Wayne whilst on tour of nearby Sulgrave Manor, the ancestral home of the first president of the United States George Washington. On a visit to Sulgrave in 1889 the honourable William Taft, Chief Justice of America said, "Sulgrave is a charming little spot only hidden in the loveliness of its seclusion, with the old Star inn by the roadside a relic of bygone days when comforts were plain and ale was plenty." The Star is where people matter and whether you are staying in one of our comfortable en-suite bedrooms, dining in the oak beamed restaurant or just having a drink you will be made to feel welcome by all the staff who will ensure your time with us is enjoyable. Gillie and Barry welcome friends old and new. ... more   less
