Owner description: After a major refit and refurb in February 2017 we opened our doors on March 17th to the village and we are bigger and better than ever before. The pub is under new ownership and is run by a former Bath Ales guy so you can be sure the beers are kept well. A great new menu consisting of locally sourced professionally cooked delicious pub food is on offer everyday and the pub opens at 12pm daily and is open all day too! Why not drop in and say hi, it's no longer a place to avoid and is fast becoming the place to be. Grab yourself a drink and stop a while - you are most welcome:)

“Friendly Manageress”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

We were unable to eat here as bookings ceased five minutes before we entered,we had drinks in a friendly,spotless area where a local read while his dog patiently waited.
Staff were pleasant and we realise a "cut off " point has to be adhered to when making/serving food.
We were advised and given directions where to obtain a snack from a local farm shop due to The Seven Stars being unable to accommodate making us a meal - the menu looked impressive!

On leaving the Seven Stars we had to walk through a group of three smokers who chose to smoke directly on the entrance/exit area - we are unsure if there was a designated smoking area - but common sense would dictate not to smoke where others have to walk through?

“Really great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We had dinner at the Seven Stars and I was really surprised at the high quality, large portions and value. I had pork, really large portion, it was a bit tough but it didn't matter to me as the potatoes and the salad were so good! One of my other companions had the vegetarian option which was delicious (Sweet potato and camembert). The pub is old, plenty of character. The young lady that was taking our orders was terrific as well, so helpful and genuine. Overall I highly recommend it.

We went to this pub because it was within walking distance from our accommodation. Meal was OK Reasonable choice. Hearty portions with little finesse. Cheerful prompt service

“Average”

It was ok for a drink but when we went to order a meal, the menu hadn't been printed yet (6.30pm) and when it was it was poor in selection.

“This place is "on the Up"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

The Seven Stars in Timsbury (just outside Bath) has been through several different managements / ownerships over the past 7 or 8 years, and for the last few has been a decent enough basic pub to go to for a drink. However, in the last few weeks, there has been a significant change; a new management team is turning it in to a more food-oriented bistro style establishment.

The place has been decorated and re-organised, the garden area has been tidied up, all of the staff are very enthusiastic and it has started to serve a good range of food, We ate there this evening and were very impressed with the range and quality of food and service.

We think that the changes in the past few weeks are a sign of things to come. The Seven Stars is certainly a place which is really trying to make its mark..

Don't be put off by reviews from previous years
