Reviewed February 15, 2013

Friendly atmosphere, nice food, some seating a little bit worn out and dirty.
Food and menu options good value for money.

“Good food at good prices!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Food was absolutely perfect, it was 3 days before Christmas the bar was packed as everyone was out for Christmas. We managed to walk in the back entrance and get the last table which was lucky, took a while to order but we didnt wait long for the food, waiter was helpful and friendly and the kids (9&13)enjoyed there food. We also had the added bonus of the 20oz megasaurus being on the specials board too. We would defiantly go back again.

“A nice place to spend a couple of hours”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

We decided to have a small staff 'party' there just before Xmas. Although quiet early on it soon filled up but the staff worked tirelessly and efficiently. Despite it being busy the food was served quickly and I was pleasantly surprised how good it was. I also enjoyed the bottles of Rekorderlig Winter Spice Cider - all in all a nice place to spend a couple of hours after work.

“Excellent Team Crimbo Lunch”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

We went here for a low cost team Christmas meal and none of us were disappointed.

Some reviews I've read are dismissive, so I was a bit concerned, but The Star is clean, spacious and with staff who are willing to help as opposed to sulking behind the bar.

Portions were of a good size, steaming hot and very tasty - we all regretted ordering the additional bowl of roast potatoes ;o)

Staff were attentive and more than happy to turn down the background music, which was a tad loud for lunchtime. We didn't feel rushed, and thoroughly enjoyed our team lunch - not sure evenings would be as enjoyable as I reckon this place might get busy.

Would happily return for a low cost meal in the future.

“Absolutely brilliant!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

My friend took me here for dinner. Plenty of parking outside. The tables inside are not squashed together, we sat un a booth that had a small TV screen showing the music videos playing as well as advert.
I have a wheat allergy and was able to order very easily from the menu thanks to their clear marking in the menu. They also have am extremely comprehensive allergy list available online and in the restaurant.
The service was very good although we seemed to get a little forgotten when we'd finished our mains but that was no hassle.
My friend's daughter was given a colouring sheet and crayons to entertain her so she loved it.
Personally, I can't wait to go back.
