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.

Steph and her team are all very welcoming and they serve top quality food and good beer. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly with great service. It’s well worth a visit.

We have been to the Seven Stars many times before and always enjoyed the experience. Not so much this time, however. We were there early (6pm) for a celebratory birthday dinner. There were 10 of us. We were in the Snug and at the time...we arrived, the dining room was empty. Despite this the service was very slow it took from 6pm till gone 9pm for us to finish our meal. With regard to the food, the Starters were all excellent but our main courses, without exception, were all far too salty. We only identified this when we all discussed it later.it was interesting that on this occasion Steph was absent!More

Really enjoyed our visit last night to the Seven Stars. Right from the start we were made to feel welcome and well looked after. The staff were efficient and courteous and the food was delicious. The restaurant had a lovely ambiance and was warm and...cosy. We were a little worried when we read some negative reviews but decided to take a chance as it was halfway between us and were not disappointed. Will definitely go there again.More

Went to the seven stars for lunch with friends. We had such a warm welcome when we arrived( like we were family) we ordered our lunch and my friends ordered a starter but it had cheese on which i would of loved but I'm dairy...free. When food was delivered they brought me the same starter with a dairy free option with vegan cheese. This restaurant really went that extra mile and will definitely be visiting again. Nothing was too much trouble and food was excellent. Thank youMore

My first time in the area, and a meal so good, I had to leave a review! What an absolute gemstone this place is! We had a cheeky little Christmas Table for 2 which we pre-ordered! The place was bustling, but the staff here are...so kind and attentive, it didn't seem to phase them in the slightest. The food, oh my golly gosh, the food!! My wife had the Apple and Celeriac Soup to start and the Turkey for main, I had the Salmon Mousse and then the Butternut squash. Every mouthful was just as delicious as the last, from start to finish, the meal was exceptional! What ever the chefs are doing here, they need to keep on doing!! This place is truly special! We shall definitely be returning!More

We have eaten here a few times and always complimented the chef on the quality of the food and the staff on their great customer service, so today was a bit of a shock! My wife had chestnut soup. It was tasteless She then had...the Butternut squash roast for a main course. It was so awful that she couldn't eat it. The young girl serving us looked like she worked in a school canteen, the plates of food were unceremoniously dumped on the table in front of us. When we did complain about the food, there were no apologies, just shrugged her shoulders. I had the fish pie, which again wasn't as amazing as it was before, and gave me an upset stomach. Everything about the lunch was just awful and disappointing!! The French lady (Manager?) that is normally there was noticeably absent, I know she would've been horrified at the standard of customer service. Was it a different chef, maybe?? Who knows. It used to be one of our favourite pubs now we will never go there again, which is a shame as it is a beautiful community owned place.More

Utterly worthy. Superb staff, with a good balance of friendly but professional. Excellent food...have been several times now and I think this time was the best. Mackerel pate, light and clean with a fabulous balanced chutney. Pulled pork spring rolls with a good dipping sauce....Prawns of excellence..... And rather a cheeky bar snack as a starter... one of the best houmous with bread. Warning on that one... It's substantial because it's a bar snack! We managed though :-) ... With broad smiles. Then Sunday roasts for some, and excellent fish pie, 7 star burger, and a plaice with cockles that created smiles and happy vibes. Yorkshires and good gravy, nice veg,.... And nice people. It's, lovely leaving somewhere when everyone's happy, smiling and talking about what the ate. Thank you. We enjoyed every morsel and we are pleased you're within a sensible driveMore

Attended with family for Sunday lunch today and we were not disappointed. We were a table of 14 and all enjoyed delicious roasts (all delivered to the table at the same time) served by happy, polite and attentive staff. It was a real pleasure to...dine here and hopefully will be returning again soon. Definitely recommended.More

This lovely venue never disappoints. Stephanie and her great team always provide a welcoming friendly, efficient service. Today was the first time we have visited for Sunday lunch. The food was delicious and well presented. On arrival for a 1.00 booking, the restaurant was completely...full and the atmosphere was lovely. Tables were cleared quickly, ready for the next diners who were enjoying the bar.More

I had heard good things about this pub, and wow did it deliver. From the moment we walked in till the moment we left the service was excellent! Then the food! Wow, i have the fish pie and my friend had the Lamb special!! Delicious....The desserts were the same. I also think the wine by the glass was high quality. A lot of the time you go to pubs and the wine by the glass is not great. I can't wait to come back!!!More

My apologies. This was directed to the wrong pub. It was meant for The Crown in Radnage. The 7 Stars is a great pub which I thoroughly recommend.
