“What a star!”
Reviewed 6 May 2011

Couldn't fault the Star Inn Woodstock. Service was as friendly and as helpful as you can get, the food is fresh and delicious and a good wine list on offer.
The room was beautifully and tastefully decorated, spacious with a very comfty bed.
High standards without a silly over priced tag. Loved every minute of staying there.

Room Tip: Ask for the large room overlooking market square

I stayed one night. I was given a double room which was very small. The en-suite didn't have a bath, just a shower. On the plus side, the room and the bathroom were spotless and the bed was comfortable. On the minus side, the room (heated by a small radiator)was cold. Next morning I found a fan heater hidden in a drawer but there had been no indication that it was there and by the time I found it, it was too late. The 'phone was also hidden in a cupboard. There was a bulb missing from one of the bedside lamps and there was no information of any sort in the room. You got to this room by using a winding staircase with very narrow steps which , I imagine, would present serious difficulty to anyone with less that 100% mobility. I certainly didn't find it easy to use.

I was told that breakfast was from eight (late by business standards) but when I arrived for breakfast, just after eight, the dining room was in darkness with no sign of any food or of any activity. A short while later a young woman, still in her coat, arrived and things began to get started. My breakfast (eventually) arrived and it was of an acceptable standard. There didn't appear to be anyone else staying there that night.

The room cost £75 and the breakfast £5 extra. I think that I'll try to find somewhere else if I visit Woodstock again..

We did not stay at the Star Inn but went for dinner on 1st January. We turned up not having booked and were shown to an excellent table near the fire in the main restaurant. The menu choice and specials were excellent and the staff young and enthusiastic, Food tasted freshly cooked, portions plentiful and very well priced - I can recommend the Steak & Kidney Pie.

We will visit next time we are in Woodstock

We ate at the star breakfast lunch and dinner because the food was so nice, it was homemade and great value for money and I recommend the sunday roast the gravy was to die for. The rooms were fantastic and I would recommend this lovely traditional pub to any one me and my husband will certainly be going back

Upon arriving into town we went looking for a b&b mentioned in a travel book. So glad it was fully booked. Happened upon The Star Inn. True English charm with all the amenities. The evening meal of fish and chips was delicious. The beer was cold. The room was spacious by British standards, loved the towel warmer in the bathroom. Full english breakfast did not disappoint. Staff was pleasant and service was efficient. Would return if back in the area again.highly recommend.
