The Star Inn is in a small village and not far from Wantage and was an ideal place to stop for one night after working nearby.
The rooms are still a work in progress - we chose the best available (number 8) which is a small suite. There are still a few issues to be sorted as the place is still quite new, for example no soap tray in the shower (which was good), not much embellishment in the bedroom itself but our comments were noted.
The main reason to come though is to eat, the chef has an excellent track record and the menu was interesting and all the dishes we tried worked out well. The let down is the wine list and having looked in advance at the list on-line we asked about BYO which they agreed to. The management are aware the wine list needs improvement and will be taking steps to develop this.
It was a quiet Thursday evening in the restaurant and only two staff on duty at front of house but service was very polished and everybody in the place was very friendly.
This is a place with real potential to improve and the attitude is right to do this. We will certainly return if we are in the area again.
