I visited The Star after moving to the local area and being recommended by friends, and what can I say apart from it is an hidden gem amongst a lovely countryside setting. It is a proper pub which serves a selection of real ales and good choice of bottled ciders including a locally pressed real cider. The bar and restaurant has so much character with low ceilings, original beams and two log burning fires. What's nice is that it is cosy and intimate, not like large chains of pubs and restaurants where many tables are crammed into a noisy footprint. Now onto the food...it is rare and unheard of nowadays to find a good pub which serves fresh, homemade dishes all prepared on the premises. The Star breaks away from this modern tradition, I was amazed to discover that absolute everything on the menu is made within the pubs own kitchen, including the Deserts! I had the turkey dinner seeing as we were in the festive period and all I can say is WOW...they say it's rare to find a meal cooked as good as your mothers, but I hate to say it this was better (sorry mum!) The turkey was perfectly cooked, and the freshly prepared veg along with all the trimmings was gorgeous. I was even treated to an extra portion of pigs in blankets! For dessert I had rice pudding which was deliciously creamy, and along with the homemade shortbread made this dessert truly exquisite! All in all I would rate my experience at The Star remarkable and look forward to being welcomed to the pub for many more visits to come!
