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.

Me, my wife, daughter (4) and son (8 months) visited here for the Grinch party. We have to say that the service from the staff was spot on and the gentleman at the bar also switched the football on for me. My daughter had a...great time and we made some lovely memories. The drinks and food were also good. I would definitely be coming back in the future. Thank you very much for making us feel very welcome, and putting on a great Grinch PaRtY. See you soon.More

We booked the conservatory part of the pub for my wife's 60th Birthday for family and friends and also took advantage of their table decorating service . The room looked fabulous and Emma and the team made us all feel welcome The service of food...was excellent amazing portions and very tasty and everyone commented on how good the food was Emma was amazing in making sure everyone had what they needed and felt more like a friend to us than a manager . If you are thinking of holding an event I can't recommend this place more Highley!!! Afterwards they held a games night which was good fun even though I didn't win anything 😂. Overall I would definitely recommend The Star not only for a family gathering but any time you fancy a lovely home cooked meal and a refreshing drink. Once again thank you to all at the Star for an amazing evening and a big thank you to Emma she really is a credit to yourselves!!!More

Table booked for 7pm but arrived by 6.30pm to have a drink first. Shown straight to our table which was reserved ready for us. Drinks received promptly and food ordered. Pleasant and happy to help from the start. Food fine and quite prompt considering it...was freshly cooked. Waited for the dessert but was happy at the portion size . Toilets are really clean and fresh. Would consider coming here again.More

What a disappointing experience we had during a visit for Sunday Lunch to The Star Public House ,GT Wyrley on Sunday 10 Sept 2023, the table was booked for 1 O'clock and we arrived on time. We were taken to our table, our drinks order...was taken and was told there would be a delay for our food. We accepted this occurrence and then waited 41 mins for the food to arrive. After finishing our Sunday Lunch we decided to choose sweet but before this happened a waitress came and told us that we had to move from our table and could go to a table in the bar. She explained that we had used our 2 hour Quota for Sunday Lunch. On previously booking this table in person A time restriction was never mentioned. The 41 mins delay was not our fault and we were absolutely disgusted about being asked to move before the completion of our meal, It was a complete embarrassment to us as this booking included relatives who had travelled several miles for the visit. We paid our bill of over £ 80 and without choosing our sweet and coffee's We left never to returnMore

Food was lovely but having a one hour wait is unacceptable, the manager told me our food was not ordered until 15.20, absolutely correct. We booked our table for 15.00. No apology, she was so rude. After eating at the star for quite a number...of years we have decided it’s not for us anymore especially after we were told we were being arsey and did we still want our food.More
