Chilly day lovely warm log burner. Good choices on menu decided to have bacon brie and cranberry baguette very filling served with a nice fresh salad and the best chips I have had in a very long time. Staff very welcoming would certainly go back.

The reviews do this place justice. A really lovely place for some decent ale, a log fire and a fantastic meal. Friendly staff. Menu includes things like chicken, mushroom & asparagus soup, ham hock terrine, gorgeous rib-eye steak, saddle of venison... Will definitely return.

Found this pub on trip advisor, and the reviews were spot on. Never had such a large portion at a more than reasonable price! We had gammon, and salmon, both amazing! As others had commented, the home made chipped potatoes were to die for! The staff were very friendly on what was quite a busy night, xmas eve. We have... More

After a frantic search of trip adviser whilst traveling home, I decided to call and see if they could fit 6 people and a high chair in. A yes was a good start.. definitely a good find.. excellent drink and really superb food. Great venue, friendly staff and a welcoming venue. We'll be back soon and thank you.

Stopped here en route to Bridlington.Ploughman's lunch delicious and enormous.Not much ploughing after this-more like snoozing.Hand-pulled beer,decent wine and quaint surroundings.It was quiet but the staff looked after us well.Would definitely call again

Today we attempted to stop off for lunch before going to the Driffield Steam Rally. The first pub we went to looked desserted, the second place gave us very little choice and had no appeal so we drove around looking for a place to stop visiting most villages but nothing took our fancy until we walked into The Old Star...

The Old Star in Kilham is a traditional country pub in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds and the local community. Real Ales and freshly prepared local meals are a mainstay. With 2 log burners and 2 open fires throughout the pub a warm welcome is guaranteed even on the chilliest winter (or summer) evening. A south-facing beer garden means children, dogs and sun-seekers are well catered for. Alternating Wednesdays we hold a quiz night. We are flexable to do take-way too, please just submit your order and we will prepare it for you! For tables of 6+ booking is appreciated as this will allow for better service for you and other diners. The pub is dog friendly, however during eating and peak hours owners are requested to ensure their dogs are under control and out of the dining areas. Looking forward to see you soon!
