We had a delicious evening meal sat beside a warm fire. My fish and chips was great and so was my wife's steak and kidney. Our friend had a curry which she enjoyed. Very friendly and helpful staff. We've been a couple of times before to the Seven Stars and will certainly go again.

Had an excellent Sunday Lunch here. We brought our dog so sat in the lounge, the staff were super attentive and food of high quality. To be honest we're not easily pleased so it was brilliant to find somewhere that we will definitely visit again.

The building is well kept and tastefully decorated, I agree with some of the other comments, it is...

Really enjoyed our stay. Lovely traditional pub but with a modern twist. Restaurant was great with a good choice and quality food. Like the ambiance with jazz playing in the background. Our room was spacious if a little tired. The only negative was the size of bathroom, tiny shower with poor pressure. All in all a great little find with...

Arriving at the Seven Stars Inn for a four day stay I was welcomed at reception by Claire who was so helpful in checking me into my comfortable room with its Tea and coffee making facilities and shower en suite.

6 of us had a wonderful evening last night in The Seven Stars! Beautiful decor and delicious food 😊! Menu made it difficult to choose as everything was tempting . I enjoyed the calamari followed by the dressed crab for mains, finished with a gorgeous cheesecake. We all enjoyed our evening, thank you to the chef and staff!

Description of how to get there, good. First impressions were ok... Bedrooms require some TLC, bathroom small for larger person, toilet seat wanders left right and wherever .... Chose to eat in - food was well prepared very tasty and looked good... Happy... Breakfast was same as evening meal - well prepared and a good sized start to the day....
