My daughter booked here for a Sunday lunch birthday treat for my husband. We have been here many times over the past 20 or so years, recently less often and only for a drink. We haven't eaten here for a couple of years mostly because we wouldn't have wanted to. But, we have heard good things and certainly weren't let... More

We visited The Star Inn in 20014 and I wasn't all that impressed. The decor was dated, tired and in desperate need of a revamp! When a friend suggested we go there for dinner as there had been a change in management. We were not that keen. Very happy that we did. The new owners are very friendly and the... More

We didn't book for Sunday lunch but found staff and host very friendly and fitted us in for Sunday lunch. We moved to the Marsh two years next month and have tried several Sunday roast/meals on the Marsh. We found this to be the best so far! Would score eight of ten, which is brillant for us as foodies! Staff,... More

Met for a pre Christmas Sunday lunch with family, roast was lovely as were the other lunches we had and the puddings. Would definitely go back, beautiful country surroundings and garden looked lovely for the summer months.

The Star looks in need of a little sprucing up from the outside, but this tends to enhance the atmosphere of the place with it's low ceilings and wooden beams. The car park is unmade and has quite a few pot-holes making it a little difficult for those with mobility problems although, apart from a tiny step at the door,... More

We booked 6 for Sunday Lunch, and were not disappointed. Selection of starters including several soups with lovely crusty bread. Other options are available but we all had a standard Sunday Lunch which was chicken and/or pork. The chicken was soft and succulent. Although feeling very full, we had dessert, mine was syrup sponge with ice cream. Good friendly service,... More

The food which was fabulous was cooked fresh by the owner who has recently bought the place and is in the process of renovating it. Great character with traditional country pub feel. No machines. Dart board, chess, lovely woodburner in inglenook. Great garden. Dog and family friendly.Worth a detour to check it out.

This isn't a foodies' pub, it's a nice traditional pub with good beer that found us a table for 6 people and a dog at no notice on a Sunday. They have a separate soup menu, all of which seemed good. I had a distinctly above average ham, egg and chips, the rest of the party had a selection of... More
