“Lots of ales!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

We were welcomed as soon as entering with an "Hello" and a smile. There are plenty of beers both on tap and in bottles to choose from and apple cider on tap. They specialise in stocking the Montheiths range. Efficient and friendly service. The daily newspapers are there for free perusing. This pub has both an internet room and gaming room. Several options for seating including a sunny outdoor area at the rear and we chose the lovely comfy leather chairs and coffee table near the front door. Good to see a range of cocktails that are able to be made readily advertised on a blackboard. Wine list is fairly minimal with not so well know brands. Attractive entrance with long bar and lots of warm wood tones, that makes one want to enter. It will be our favourite watering hole when in this wee town.

“Great place! Awesome people.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

Great little bar! Icing on the cake for this wonderful town. I am traveling solo from the US and felt right at home here. Local or import they treat everyone like friends. Can't wait to go back next time.

“Chill out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

The star and Garter has the warmest atmosphere out of all the bars in Coromandel town. The owners are just lovely as are the staff. You can warm yourself by the roaring fire inside and their meals come from Umu or The Pepper tree on either side. A great place to go watch the big sporting events on the big screens. Just a nice place to chill.
