Went to the Star for Sunday lunch with the wife ,we had roast pork and beer battered fish and chips, a couple of beers and two coffees ,there is no service charge and the total bill was £31.00
The service was good ,the food was presented well and was nice and tasty.
We will definitely go back .

I am trying to think of compliments to give this place and I'm really struggling!

The atmosphere and setting in the bar does not reflect what is waiting for you upstairs!!

The rooms are dated and grubby. Torn carpets, small tv, old bathroom...the list goes on and on.

Breakfast is a toaster set up outside the bedrooms, all looked very grubby too. We gave this a miss :(

The doors bang all night - I suspect some of the staff have rooms upstairs too. Lots of shouting until early hours. As you exit the back door you are greeted by smoking staff and fag butts everywhere...not nice!

This place is cheap (ish) and you get less than you pay for. Pay the extra £20 and stay somewhere else!!

Will not be returning!

Early evening meal at The Star.

Good welcome, friendly smile, good service and decent food well presented.

Simple three course meal, hot, wholesome soup, wild boar sausage and mash, sticky toffee pudding and ice cream what more could a simple Northern lad want?

Found by accident and well placed sign. Pleasant enviroment, decent restaurant, good service and hot, well presented food.

Worth a visit if you're passing and hungry.

We stayed here after spending our wedding anniversary at Lingfield Races. We had a lovely room, a lovely meal and even treated to our lovely desserts. It was a perfect day and evening. Would definitely recommend this pub as an ideal place to stay when going to the races.

Just arrived home after using the Star as a base for a three day golf break ( I was 1 of a party of 8)
We played at the Marriot Lingfied Park Golf Course,but were reluctant to stay at the hotel and have to pay £100 per night for a room and pay silly money for food,and only have fizzy beer to drink.
The landlord Simon & his young team could not have been more attentive,they catered for our every need with a smile and kind word,the food was of the best quality,three quality real ales available,The rooms were clean and tidy serviced daily,and had everything you need for a comfortable short break all in all a little gem & all for £20 pppn If your looking for a base for a short break this is the place.Well done everybody at the Star see you all again next year!

The whole party got food poisoning after a cold meal that was over an hour late - Avoid this place as you will be ignored if you even ask where your food is or dare make a complaint.

It's a shame as if one of the 8 people working there on a quiet evening had done their job then I wouldn't be complaining.

The only redeeming feature was the location. It was a real let down and an expensive one too.

My daughter & I stayed at The Star when visiting Lingfield for a night. We booked an exterior room as it was the cheapest option, but were a bit surprised to find it was actually a third of an out building / garage in the car park Having said that, the room was great value for money (£40 a night), & the beds were really comfy. The room was fine, having twin beds, & a shower room / toilet. The food at the pub next door was lovely & had a garden to sit out in the sunshine. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at The Star Inn & would recommend it for a short stay.
