First visit to the restaurant and I would definitely return. It's very cosy but there are table options for larger groups with a bit more privacy. Lovely menu and great option of smaller portions from a selection of the main menu. The tangerine, blue cheese and walnut salad starter was a combination I had never had before and would definitely... More

I bring an elderly relative to the 7Stars for fish and chips approximately every 4-6 weeks and she absolutely loves her visits. She always has fish and chips and I agree with her that they don't come much better. Yesterday my wife and I visited for Sunday lunch receiving the usual friendly service coupled with good food. Our waitress was... More

We went for a meal with my mother for her Birthday. The service was excellent and the food was as good. I wish we lived local as I'd be there all the time

Lovely and welcoming interior, especially nice with a coal fire in the bar. Dog friendly in bar area & staff very friendly even a biscuit for the dog😊 We both had the 3 roast dinner which came with a free starter so very good value. The calamari was delicious as was the dinner. Plenty of it, well presented and hot.... More

I visit the Seven Stars Inn for lunch very often as its one of the best traditional roasts around! Me & my partner travel over 25 miles to eat here on Sunday. Would highly recommend... My sister & her partner are also becoming regulars!

Went for a birthday meal. We hadn't booked but was given a table away from the main dining room. The menu was OK but nothing outstanding.

This is our first visit to the Seven Stars in many years and we were pleasantly surprised. The dining room looks recently decorated and the tables are well spaced. When we visited on a Tuesday evening, the main menu was supplemented with a specials board which had six additional main courses - including dressed crab - as well as an... More

Some improved decor since last visit and dining room is very nice. Toilets still need a makeover. Food is very good and service friendly. Would prefer the vegetables served separately as previously. Well worth a visit.
