“Lovely food...”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

The food was amazing! I enjoyed everything I ate! The staff weren't very attentive and just left us to it - this was good as we weren't getting hassled, but when we needed something, it took ages for the waiters to come. The food definitely made up for it though and I am planning on returning soon :-)

“Very ambient evening”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

First visit to the Seven Starts and will definitely be going back. Nice and cosy restaurant but professional too. Friendly and helpful staff made us feel welcome. Very good food and good value too. Can't wait to try more of the delicious sounding items on the menu.

“Excellent value. Cosy surroundings.”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

The bar was quaint & cosy with the open fire roaring. The restaurant wasn't too busy when we arrived but soon began to fill up giving a lovely atmosphere. We made use of a voucher for £19.95: 2 starters, 2 mains & 2 glasses of wine & it was great value. The food was gorgeous as was the wine & the service excellent. All the staff are lovely & very helpful. Highly recommended and we shall return.

“Cosy and friendly.”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Had a really good visit to the Seven Stars. The food was good and the staff were excellent. Would recommend eating in the restaurant as the bar is very small.

“Quality dining”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

The Seven Stars is a traditional pub with a seperate restaurant which is comfortable and very well presented. The restaurant offers a wide menu choice and caters for most tastes. I had the goats cheese for starters which was presented in a small terrine with a pudding mix, sundried tomatoes and goats cheese topping. It was very unusual and absolutely divine, my partner had garlic mushrooms which were about average. For mains he had the liver, which was excellent and I had the salmon and noodles. The noodles were fried crispy and arranged in a high peak on top of the salmon, which looked good but tricky to try and eat! The dish was also presented with red cabbage which again was delicious. For desert we had sticky toffee pudding - worth a trip to the restaurant just for this.
For a quality meal in a nice romantic setting this is a great place to eat.
