Restaurant description

Serving award-winning food with produce and meat sourced from nearby fields, farms and hunters, The Star Inn successfully combines fine dining with a countryside pub atmosphere. Enjoy artisan beverages, greens from the kitchen garden and freshly cooked meals in the calm surroundings of the terrace.

Enjoy your meal at the bar or in the cosy restaurant, and sample locally sourced creations like venison loin with salt baked celeriac and braised red cabbage, or pan-seared sea bream with herb farfalle pasta. The Star Inn’s steaks are dry-aged for up to 42 days, and game is often sourced from nearby shoots. For dessert, choose British and Irish cheeses with wafers, crackers & seasonal chutneys, or coffee or tea with homemade fudge.

Sparsholt’s Star Inn offers special Sunday lunch and dinner and a regularly changing selection of real ales, whiskeys and vodkas that can be enjoyed in the delightfully serene garden.

The Star Inn Restaurant is located in south Oxfordshire, a 30-minute drive from Oxford.

    We waited at the bar for 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us despite staff milling around and the restaurant being virtually empty . The food is style over substance. Expensive, and not paticularly well cooked...we left before desert.

    Lovely welcome and table just as requested. Service from Tess and team was excellent and really good food too. Ambience felt warm and convivial with just enough buzz.
