“Great for the races”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

Come out of the railway station and walk straight over the road to the alley opposite the side of the church. A ten minute walk will bring you to The Star. Low beams, lots of room , big outside area , lovely food if you ignore the overpriced bar snacks. Can anyone justify £4 for a small bowl of olives? Still, the beer is well kept and a lot cheaper than the racecourse bars

Myself and my husband love going to the racing at Lingfield Park and we always stay at The Star Inn. The rooms are really good value for money. The pub has rooms inside the pub itself upstairs which are a little more expensive, £60/£70 per room. They also have rooms outside which are called "The Stables" which are cheaper, we paid £40 for a room. All the rooms here are really nice, very clean and comfortable. The pub itself is really nice, we have eaten here a couple of times and the food is very nice too. They have live music on a saturday too which we really enjoy. If you are going to Lingfield Park Racecourse and want a comfortable room for the night this is your place!!

Stayed for 2 nights and the accomodation was excellent. Called the Stable, it was clean, comfortable and very reasonably priced. The full English breakfasts were fantastic. Missed out on 5 stars, because if the beef stroganof really is 3 slices of beef, some sauce and little else, then I've had it wrong all of these years. A couple of locals complained and were refunded. Pleasant enough, but wrong description.
Would definitely stay again. Meal next night was superb. Beer good, though the real ales were probably wasted on the soft southern shandy drinkers!

Excellent location for the races and a fun pub for drinks later! Located just 5 mins from the race course and 5 mins in the opposite direction for the high street. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good just very slow, we didn't get our breakfast till 9.30 and checkout was at 10.00 it wasn't a problem to us but could be to others

We stopped here the night before the holiday - it was perfect for getting to Gatwick early the next day as it is only 25 minutes away. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival and were shown to a very good room with tea/coffee making facilities (something that seems to be excluded often these days) Parking the car overnight was free.

On arrival we went into the pub and had a great steak meal, together with a complimentary bottle of wine (a Tuesday special deal). Just to round it off, as both my wife and I like football, the pub had an area with Sky TV so we could watch the match that evening.

Next time we use Gatwick Airport, we will be returning to the Star Inn - Excellent!!!!!

Just stayed at this pub for two nights as we were visiting lingfield racecourse. We were greeted on Friday afternoon by Scott who was very friendly and helpful. Lovely meal at night and a full English in the morning. Relaxed atmosphere and clean room. Have already booked four rooms for a birthday in June.

This is a fantastic place to stay if you want some good food and / or need somewhere to stay after a day at Linfgield Races. We stayed here in Feb 2014 and its excellent value for money. A 10-15 min walk to the races so ideal location and pub food menu is excellent. Rooms are of course a little basic but I have stayed in much worse for more money, large TV with freeview, toiletries in Shower Area and nice views of the fields outside. Of course a little noisy at night but what do you except in a pub??!! A great stay and I will definitely return in the future.
