A quirky pub set on different levels. Looked like it had an outside garden area although we did not go out there. Toilets are down some stairs so take care as they are not the easiest to navigate, not sure how you manage if disabled,...More

Looking for a simple sandwich type of lunch and the staff here made us very welcome. Great food, could not fault the service. Interesting building with a sun-trap terrace as well.

Been coming here for years, certainly won't be any longer after the unpleasant and unacceptable treatment of a member of our party by a member of staff.

I'm very sorry to hear this, we pride ourselves on offering great service so I'm very concerned to find you did not receive this. Please could you let me know some more details so I can investigate this further Starinn@shepherd-neame.co.uk Thank you

I only stopped in for drink and liked it so much I popped in again the following night. Friendly staff, plenty of seating, small outdoor area. They serve food (although I didn't eat there) and dogs are welcome!

We'd travelled over 300+ miles on the hottest day of the Summer so far so we looked for a good pub for a snack and an ice cold drink. The Star Inn is a charismatic, old bar on three levels with a beer garden out...More

We've been entertaining the people of Guildford for more than 400 years and we're proud to say that we're the area’s longest-running live music venue, showcasing some excellent acts including The Stranglers, who performed their first ever gig here! Close to the vibrant shopping district, river and Guildford Castle, our 16th century pub is split over three levels and has been refurbished to the highest standards while maintaining many historic features. With a real fire, an intimate courtyard garden and a host of snug and cosy corners, it is a great place to relax, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy traditional pub food and distinctive cask ales. We even reputedly have our own ghost – a man in uniform who sometimes chats to guests! Why not pop over to see us all soon...
