Star Quality Dominating the impossibly picturesque High Street in Alfriston, The Star Inn sits at the heart of this timeless village. The recent refurbishment has returned this ancient inn back to its roots in its bar and public areas, whilst introducing a classy contemporary feel to the 37 stylish bedrooms. This former hostelry for pilgrims oozes character with open fireplaces and soft golden lights and medieval artefacts adorn walls and corners. For locals and visitors alike, the welcome is traditional in the best sense of the word, with excellent locally sourced food and wines on offer, and local Sussex ales on tap. For business meetings it's an excellent venue with a large car park and a range of meeting areas with state-of-the-art facilities. As a romantic place to tie the knot The Star Inn is hard to beat. With a choice of delightful rooms and spaces, and a personalised service, you can be sure of a memorable day. So, for a true taste of Sussex, steeped in a long and colourful history, visit The Star Inn.

Good Morning Emma P Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review, we really do appreciate the feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed the food and would return, however I'm a little confused about the rate of the rooms. if you currently look on our website thestaralfriston.co.uk or check out booking.com & Expedia our rates range currently from £75 Room Only to £85 B&B.

Kind Regards.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We all had the beef stew which was delicious. The service was very good. The crumble sweet was excellent with loads of fruit. This venue would be excellent for a wedding.

There is no doubt that the many complaints reflect a problem. If I were you, and given you have committed to stay there, I would give them a call in advance and explain your concerns, not rely on the owner reading this. Tell them you'd like a decorated room and insist on seeing it before. I usually find that those who take extra steps to get what they want get it and those who rely on good faith don't sadly. If you are walking the SDW get over to The Seven Sisters it's an amazing days walking
