Originally a picturesque farmhouse, The Star Inn in Kingsclere was built around 1847, and is now part of the village which is mostly a designated conservation area. These beautiful surroundings are perfect to enjoy with the traditional British pub cuisine, from the al fresco garden or by the cosy hearth-fire. It also features Chesterfield armchairs, old-fashioned plaques on the mantelpiece and other vintage trinkets.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Star Inn menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Star Inn ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

In the village of Kingsclere, The Star Inn is just 15 minutes’ drive from Newbury.
