Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Absolutely fantastic meals last night, six of us went, all the food looked professional and was all excellent. I had the lamb which is reared on their own farm as were the sausages. All beers and ciders were great and all staff are very attentive.... I’m celiac and they are very clued up on GlutenFree. The chef made me Gluten Free Whitebait with GF bread on the side . Will continue to support this local traditional pub .More

Sunday lunch with our car club . Excellent service and meal. Ordered on arrival and within 10 minutes starters were on the table. Main courses served quickly , lots of vegetables, gravy and sauces etc. The lamb was best I have ever tasted ( understand...it is reared on their own farm ) . Nothing was to much trouble . We will return .More

Nice place to meet up with family. Great homely meal too. Access to parking at the rear could be signed more clearly, although we managed to park in front of the pub.

A traditional country pub with old school decor but really lovely food and great service. The pies were amazing and the deserts also great. A really homely feel to the food, really good sized portions and that home cooked feel. Highly recommend

What a lovely young man we had serving at the table. Nothing was too much bother, he wasn’t even phased when our dog decided to growl and bark at him. He made the evening even better. Food was fantastic. I had Brie & beetroot tart...which was so yummy and very filling. Another guest had a small fish and chips. Well if that portion was small I would hate to see the large one, it must come on a platter not a plate! Sadly due to the size of the meals some of us had to leave some food. A little smaller portions please. Two of the party did manage puddings but I think they were just being piggy. It was very good value for money.More

Had a family meal out - seven adults. The menu choice was extensive - and we were all very satisfied with what we ordered. The food was very tasty with big portions - perhaps a little too big. The service was first class with the...young man serving the food especially good at his job. He was very bright bubbly with a great sense of humour - a real delight to be served by himMore

We had hiked from Broadway to Ashton Under Hill and this place was highly recommended by a fellow we ran into during our hike. You need to check first at the bar to ensure the tables are actually available though. They did find us a...spot although the place was super busy. The servers were very friendly and prompt. We were allowed to do some testers of their sparking ciders before ordering. Our meals were very good and we enjoyed the vibe. We would recommend this pub/restaurant.More

We dropped in to the Star Inn for an early lunch on Tuesday. Staff were friendly and helpful. There were soon a number of tables occupied. Beer was good. I had the fish pie which had been recommended by our campsite owner and it was...stacked with fish. Others had a different pie, linguine and gammon. We all loved our food. As well as enjoyable hearty food it was good value.More

A return visit after several years and The Star is as good as ever - probably better. From the minute we stepped in and greeted by a very pleasant young lady behind the bar I knew we were right to return. The two different ploughman's...were excellent, very good quality cheeses and ham, beautifully presented and enormous portions. The fish and chips were excellent, pure white fish - what more could you ask for. There was another delightful young lady who asked if she could get us anything and then returned to check everything was okay. Food and wine extremely good value for money, as I said before I only wished we lived nearer, so thank you to everyone at The Star.More

My husband and I were on holiday and wanted to go out locally, for Sunday Lunch, somewhere that we could take our dog. We were advised to try The Star Inn and we were not disappointed. The Sunday roast was absolutely delicious! Everything was cooked...perfectly & there was plenty of it. The staff were all friendly and nothing was too much trouble! Service was prompt, efficient and delivered with a smile! They were very accepting of our extremely excitable puppy too! We enjoyed the whole experience very much and will definitely be back.

Passing this pub on a drive and stopped for food, extremely friendly staff they couldn’t of been more helpful, the menu looked fantastic I went for thick cut gammon, quails egg and chips with a pineapple chutney my partner going for the fish and chips....When it came out it certainly wasn’t what I would could thick cut gammon and was missing the chutney I asked for chutney to be told they had ran out and was offered an alternative. The food was tasty and the fish cooked well. Would recommend for good pub grub but the menu does make it come across a lot more fancy than what it actually is.More
