Description: The Black Star is a beautiful canal side public house recently acquired by wye valley brewery and undergone complete refurbishment to include open plan dining, log burning fires and an extensive outside paved area with seating and heating. The new pub offers great ales and great traditional pub food hosted by a very experienced couple from hereford who are Andrew and Maria Gooding, they also have two Labradors roaming around at various times who are very welcoming and they encourage other dog owners to come in and relax.

“Beautifully Restored, Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013 via mobile

This canalside pub has been beautifully restored and is a cozy and warm place to settle with drinks and good food. A guest and I had the sausage trio and black pudding sausages and good drinks - all served by a jovial and friendly waitress. Good atmosphere.

“excellent value and friendliness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

visited Black Star while staying two nights in Stourport. Staff very friendly and prices reasonable. We had a meal and it was excellent value for money. I had lasagne and chips with salad - obviously home made and delcious. Cost was only £4.95 and there was more than enough. Hubby had the Pride of Stourport which consisted of mash, veg and two very large sausages. Again, less than £5.00 and plenty on the plate. Would definitely recommend this pub for all the right reasons.

“We didn't just go once, but it was so good we did it again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

We moored close to this pub and had two meals here, the first in the restaurant and the second in the bar. The food was lovely, the hostesses helpful and quite charming and the food was good value. On our second visit we were treated to a local get together of young and older for a musical jam which was great. This is a quaint, independent pub in Stourport -the decor is modern and comfortable and probably the best there! Looking forward to a revisit in the future.
