“Great new chef”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

We returned for a meal here after hearing about the new chef. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food had been good before but it seems to have a bit more thought gone into it now. Picking off the menu was difficult because the options all looked tasty and interesting. We had big portions with lots of flavour and well cooked. Ingredients tasted fresh. We couldn't fit in a pudding after a starter and a main so we will just have to go back for that later!

This pub always has a friendly atmosphere and seems to have some of the nicest bar staff working here. We will be going again and look forward to our next meal!

“Outstanding family lunch and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

Just had another meal at The Star - this time lunch on Saturday. They make delicious locally sourced food, have a relaxed atmosphere, a perfect welcome and deliver great service.

The Star offers serious value for money. Many thanks. We'll be back again soon.

“Worthy of four stars”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

This lovely local 'pub' offers a very pleasant environment in which to enjoy a very good pub lunch. Although the lunchtime menu is limited the quality of the food provided is very good. The evening menu offers a wider choice - I have not tried this, but I will shortly be checking if the quality matches the lunchtime standard.

“Great village inn; friendly staff and super food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

Five of us shared an excellent evening meal; plenty of choice of food across the menu..very well presented and cooked -what a good chef. Good choice of drinks, lovely welcoming staff and atmosphere and all at a very reasonable price.
This is a village Inn with a small restaurant but a big heart; we shall certainly eat there again and again .
