Saturday lunch for 3 and we were close to the kitchen closing at 2pm but it wasn't a problem, phew. Guess now that it's signposted from all surrounding roads they may get many disappointed customers who turn up for the hours when food isn't available. Anyway, staff really welcoming and helpful especially as we had a small child with us. Lunchtime menu is good on choice and value. Food was good quality, generous but not factor so. The inn looks good from the outside and just as impressive inside with a smart but sympathetic refurbishment for a mid-18th century building. Really strongly recommend. Thank you!

Really lovely clean pub in a picturesque village with a fairly short but tempting menu. Went for Sunday lunch over the Jubilee weekend and we were impressed by the standard of cooking, especially the crispy pork belly starter - mmm, that crackling! We all sat at the long table at the back and drank velvety Shiraz and were more than happy with the airy ambience, the furniture and finish to the decor, then the wonderous food served piping hot by charming staff. My partner had the pork belly followed by more pork, it was that good! For my main course I had the tender, lean roast beef, all served with yorkie puddings, moreish crunchy roast potatoes and rich gravy. Scrumptious! Somehow we managed to find some room for cheeses, grapes, celery and crackers before being pleasantly surprised by a rather reasonable bill at the end!

Found this pub by chance after a long walk. A good find, the lunch menu was great value and the homemade food very good. A decent selection of ale, friendly service and a pleasant atmosphere rounded off a very nice experience. Would happily recommend this to anyone.

I have been to The Star Inn many times before the refurbishment, since the refurbishment they have completed everything that was missing to make it work!
The atmosphere is now homely and welcoming and I love the decoration!
Food is divine and my parents have taken a peek of the rooms upstairs and they are well worth a stay for the money!

Overall it is well worth a visit! Lovely village pub with that modern stylish twist.

Currently a limited menu, it has a large restaurant area and will become a great addition to the local eateries when the menu is expanded. Lunch time choice is limited but could be enhanced by introducing an expanded simple sandwich range. Food well cooked and of good quality.
Will revisit over the next few months and hopefully the above will be addressed. Will certainly recommend to friends who normally stay in the nearby motel
