The Star at Alfriston

Certificate of Excellence
Star Quality Dominating the impossibly picturesque High Street in Alfriston, The Star Inn sits at the heart of this timeless village. The recent refurbishment has returned this ancient inn back to its roots in its bar and public areas, whilst introducing a classy contemporary feel to the 37 stylish bedrooms. This former hostelry for pilgrims oozes character with open fireplaces and soft golden lights and medieval artefacts adorn walls and corners. For locals and visitors alike, the welcome is traditional in the best sense of the word, with excellent locally sourced food and wines on offer, and local Sussex ales on tap. For business meetings it's an excellent venue with a large car park and a range of meeting areas with state-of-the-art facilities. As a romantic place to tie the knot The Star Inn is hard to beat. With a choice of delightful rooms and spaces, and a personalised service, you can be sure of a memorable day. So, for a true taste of Sussex, steeped in a long and colourful history, visit The Star Inn.
