Reviewed December 24, 2013

Locals' pub in a wealthy village. Not welcoming to outsiders. Bar always blocked by regulars who like to sit and have a chat. Very hard to find a gap to get served. Drunken, foul language a constant background. Patronised principally by monied people, lacking class. Keep trying this place as it's in a nice location and should be quite pleasant. It isn't, so I'm finished with it - not worth the drive.

Dear TakosAtenpercentoyou,

Regarding your recent review of the Star Inn

As you might imagine Christmas Eve tuned out to be one of our busiest nights of the year, it is also one of only a few nights we do not open our Restaurant, instead we provide a 'free buffet' for Regulars & Locals or Anyone who chooses to join us, incidentally 'much as yourself' the great majority of our customers come from outside of the Village.

However as with many Village Inns part of the character is that they attract a colourful cross section of people and if you don't like the atmosphere in the Bar you will be aware that our Restaurant is separate with some quiet tables where we provide a full waitress service.

Of course we don't condone bad language but do accept we can have a Lively Bar with 'what I would describe as a Vibrant atmosphere' such is the nature of the Star Inn.

We genuinely try our best to make everyone welcome but you either like us, or you don't! fortunately most people do.

I would conclude by saying from my experience (monied or not) we have some of the most interesting and genuine customers it has been my pleasure to meet.

The Owner
The Star Inn- Thrussington.

Heard very good reports from friends, so looked it up on internet - took email address and sent message asking about making booking for approx 10 people in a month's time. After one week no reply - so gave them a phone call and they said didn't receive message. So made booking verbally and person on phone suggested we go into Green Room which seats upto 12 people. Thought this a good idea so went with it and also booked bedroom for 2 of our party.
We arrived on the night and my friend said they did not know about his room but ended up ok as they were not full. Then when all our party arrived we asked if ok to go into Green Room - they said they had set us up in main restaurant. It toll them 10 mins to change us to Green Room. Up to now - not very impressed with their organisational prowess. Fortunately things improved greatly - the food and service were first class and it ended up being an excellent evening.
I would definitely recommend the Star but ring for booking and get them to confirm details.

Dear DaveRicho52,

Thank you for your review

Apologies for the confusion with the reservation. We have now implemented a new booking system so this sort of issue does not arise again.

We are very pleased that you enjoyed the rest of your evening and we hope to see you again soon

Kind regards,

Stayed overnight at the beginning of September - well appointed room with comfortable bed and free toiletries. All the staff were very friendlly and efficient, and our evening meal was very tasty and well presented at a reasonable price. Wine was also good value for money. Despite sleeping in a room right over the bar/restaurant, there was no noise whatsoever. Continental breakfast was included in the price - excellent chocolate croissants! Would recommend this inn!

I visited this pub with my boyfriend and we had an enjoyable evening!!

This place is decorated nicely and is clean- it has a bit of class.

The food was good- not the best I have ever had in local pub/restaurants but still tasty and enjoyable.

If you like visiting different pubs to sample the drinks or enjoy a meal, I would recommend putting this one on to your list.

We booked all the rooms at the Star Inn for the weekend of my wedding during June 2013. We had viewed a number of options in the area - The Star had the perfect mix of modern, comfortable hotel accommodation, great restaurant and country pub hospitality. The Star became the 'The Groom's headquarters' and catered for the key members of the wedding party. If you are looking for a weekend away in Leicestershire, The Star is a great base and at least one night's dining in the restaurant is a must. Our particular thanks to Siobhan who went out of her way to make our stay at the Star (and my wedding!) truly memorable. Ben

An amazing place to stay if you're in the neighbourhood. Staff are wonderful and very accommodating and the local fare is delicious. Make sure you pop in around 5-6pm and have a quick drink before dinner. Wonderful and warm. Highly recommend an eat & stay.

We stayed at the Star Inn over a wonderful June weekend whilst attending friend's wedding. We arrived late on the Friday where we enjoyed a very good dinner with other members of our party. We had a friendly welcome. The day of the wedding the staff at the Star were all very helpful and obliging to the wedding party's and our needs. The fact we could arrange the Star's own taxi to collect us after the wedding reception was very comforting. We would definitely stay at the Star again and recommend it to others.
