Today we attempted to stop off for lunch before going to the Driffield Steam Rally. The first pub we went to looked desserted, the second place gave us very little choice and had no appeal so we drove around looking for a place to stop visiting most villages but nothing took our fancy until we walked into The Old Star...

Finding good quality pub food in the East Riding always seems to be a challenge and I haven't been to this particular pub for many years so didn't know what to expect. This was for a midweek lunch for three so the bar was very quiet, the menu seemed OK and there were a few daily specials on the board,... More

We had a pleasant Friday lunch here of gammon & chicken. My husbands gammon was as big as I've seen, it filled the whole plate - so come with a big appetite if you want to tackle it. The salad & mushrooms that accompanied his dish were delicious. My chicken was tasty & succulent. However, I did not like the... More

If you want a beautiful meal served in lovely surroundings by friendly helpful staff then it comes no better than the Old Star at Kilham. I cannot praise it highly enough. The menu is an interesting mix of traditional and more exotic dishes. I love being faced with a difficult choice of such lovely fare. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed their meal... More

We popped in here (with our dog). for a Sunday 'lunch' (although it was early evening). We (and our pooch) were made to feel most welcome. The staff are absolutely lovely, and the place has a fantastic atmosphere. The food is pretty wonderful - none of your small portions here, this is Yorkshire size portions - we live 'down south'...

Description
The Old Star in Kilham is a traditional country pub in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds and the local community. Real Ales and freshly prepared local meals are a mainstay. With 2 log burners and 2 open fires throughout the pub a warm welcome is guaranteed even on the chilliest winter (or summer) evening. A south-facing beer garden means children, dogs and sun-seekers are well catered for. Alternating Wednesdays we hold a quiz night. We are flexable to do take-way too, please just submit your order and we will prepare it for you! For tables of 6+ booking is appreciated as this will allow for better service for you and other diners. The pub is dog friendly, however during eating and peak hours owners are requested to ensure their dogs are under control and out of the dining areas. Looking forward to see you soon!
