At last, somewhere in the centre of town where you can go for a very nice meal at a reasonable price and with good service! Nice comfortable surroundings & pleasant staff. I asked to look at the bedrooms too as i sometimes need to book rooms for colleagues. Really nice rooms. I would be very happy to stay. I will be returning for a meal and booking rooms.

In Andover to visit a friend and thought I would give the S&G a try as super good prices. More than exceeded my expectations. Nice buzzy bar, smiley, helpful staff, great food at really good prices and a lovely clean and comfortable room. I'll be back!

Popped in Friday lunchtime as had heard that Star and Garter was finally open after the big refurb. Hadn't been there for a couple of years.
It all looked very clean. Same layout as in previous years; bar to right and restaurant to left.
We were quickly shown to a table and weren't initially impressed as it was towards the back in a room with no windows. Was going to ask to move but stayed with it as it was filling up quickly.
Waitress service was quick, efficient, helpful and smiley.
Food arrived in what seemed a very short space of time and was absolutely lovely; good portion sizes, well presented and hot.
Not a huge menu but enough choice. Also the carvery looked really lovely.
We had a look at the bar menu which was nice; will try it another time. The bar area was very busy.
Reasonable prices and a comfortable atmosphere mean that I will be going back again.

Only re-opened this week but what an excellent start. Went there for a meal after friends had already recommended it. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, knowledgeable and helpful staff great food and value for money. Four meals, a bottle of wine and two beers was £50! My daughter and I are veggie and there was only one option for us on the menu apart from the nut roast carvery, but they made it extra special for us and knew that parmesan cheese wasn't vegetarian. A great start. Well done.

I work in Andover and have watched the re-furbishment of the Danebury Hotel over the last year with interest. I attended the reception opening on 13 Jan when the doors of the newly named Star and Garter opened. The hotel, bar, restaurant and huge car park at the rear have been transformed into a lovely place to stay or drink/eat in.

3 of us went for lunch today and opted for the carvery roast - the beef and gammon were cooked to perfection. I thoroughly recommend this at a very reasonable price of £5.99. The restaurant staff were very friendly and attentive.
Huge congratulations to the owner and his team for bringing a sense of style to the town centre of Andover.

We stayed second night of opening in this newly referred hotel. Food was outstandingly good value and good quality. Rooms immaculate, every member of staff including the chef were extremely pleasant and polite. I will be using City Lodge hotels again.
