“Friendliest pub around”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

The landlord is very warm & friendly. You will be made to feel at home by Derek, his staff & the customers as soon as you walk into the bar. The food is yummy & very reasonable. The Star Tavern is the friendliest pub I have visited & the landlord is a "star".

“Good Food, Good Value, Good Atmosphere”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

We stayed at The Steeples and came to this small tavern just down the same road. We liked the local feel, the welcoming service, the quality of the food and the fantastic prices. This place is a little gem, a breath of fresh air, a totally laid back atmosphere. The owners are kind and welcoming.

“Good, honest, friendly hosts and yummy tucker”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

We had a great night here at the Star. We had been disappointed to find that the nearby restaurant was booked out but after a lovely night at the Star Tavern we're not sad one bit.
Derek (one of the the couple that own and run the tav) was a wonderful host. He took the trouble to get to know us and took genuine interest in who we were and where we had travelled from.
We loved the delicious burgers and chips (a bacon & egg burger and a vegetarian burger) and Hein enjoyed the locally brewed beer.
We really could not have had a more friendly and simply delightful evening anywhere else.
Thank you Derek and the Star Tavern!
