Was here for some beers. Atmosphere is nice. The drinks are ok. Pub was recommended by someone we met earlier. Should be the best pub in Norwich. Well, it's not...But it is ok though.

Small menu which claims to be home cooked which looked tempting. However. Very small portions. My steak was ordered medium to well done and a good vet would have had it back on it's feet. Blood leaching into my chips and blue cheese sauce. Stomach...More

Prepared and cooked on the premises... not catering supply cooked-chilled reheats! Varied menu with constantly changing specials which should not be missed. Reasonable selection of drinks.....but I'm not a Greene King kinda person, so it is guest ales and bottles for me.

We found the Golden Star because it was right next to the hotel, but returned because it was a pleasant, friendly place with nice, knowledgeable staff. More locals than tourists, which is always nice. I highly recommend a stop!

Visited the place with our son as he works close by. Very old pub, typical decor for this type of pub. Friendly staff. The food which was roasts (this was Sunday) were all very good, generous helpings. The only negative was the food took longer...More
