This was our first visit to the star with its new owners,having visited many times over the years it is one of our favourite pubs. We went for Sunday lunch and the food was lovely and plenty of it. Great atmosphere and staff hope it works out for them will definitely go back.

The Star is situated in a very nice village with a canal running behind it, and seems a popular pub with a decent range of ales. A selection of 6 - Malt Starry Nights, Dark Star American Pale Ale, Roosters Eighty Eight, Orkney Red Macgregor, Thwaites Lancaster Bomber & Oakham Inferno. The number of pumpclips on the walls show how...

Visited twice as this pub was a spit away from our holiday rental mollys cottage. Bar has a good selection of beers, food also good. It filled up very fast on the Wednesday evening on which we ate, no vacant tables after 30 minutes.

It was a beautiful day in wales,the bird's we're singing the sun was out,but the star was certainly not up to much. If you mean you consider ''much'' as a disgusting, shambolic rats nest. In my experience I have witnessed so many unpleasant visits to plenty of unappealing ''dives'' and your outlook on good staff and high cleaning standards are...

Visited a few weeks ago on a lovely summer evening and sat in the garden for our dinner. We both had steak, I had mine with just salad, my partner salad and chips, both had peppercorn sauce. Steak was absolutely lovely and cooked to perfection even though we had them cooked differently. And I was given a lovely size salad...

.......... I first discovered this little gem some 12 years ago, whilst killing time while wife did business. I eventually got to show it to her and just in time, apparently it's closing in the next few weeks, and it feels like it. It still sells a fairly good range of draught beers from far & wide, but I did...

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. It was 6:00 when we arrived at the restaurant. When we got there, we were told that they were expecting party of 20 at 8:00, and there would be no food available until then as they were preparing. We therefore left and went elsewhere. Rather abrupt.

Food was good, not much choice but cooked well. The service was shocking. As you don't have many options around this area it is kind of suck it up or just don't go! Sadly I wouldn't go back there in a hurry.
