The Star Inn is a cosy pub and restaurant, serving award-winning food using seasonal, local produce. Dine in the bar, the stylish restaurant, or in the sunny garden, and tuck into the likes of pan-seared mackerel with tomato, pomegranate and quinoa salsa and jalapeno sorbet, sea trout with wild garlic and hazelnut hollandaise, or try the signature dessert, sticky toffee souffle. From the bar comes a regularly changing selection of real ales, artisan gins, whiskies and vodkas.

    The food was very good. The service was fine. Pricing was £££ but this still represented excellent value.

    A satisfyingly good meal and service in attractive pub setting. Minor points:Shame the delicious belly pork's skin was inedibly hard and "Moroccan pork" not as interesting as the name implied. We were pleased the good Malbec was served in a caraf.

    Very nice sitting in the garden on a hot sunny Sunday lunchtime. Excellent Thai Crab Cakes and Tandoori Salmon.

    Love the pub/restaurant environment and great we had table in the old pub area , the table service was excellent however there was too long a gap between starters and main course (circa 30 mins..0 and I did think it was expensive for what we had .

    Fantastic food and service. Beef blade croquette, sea trout, pork chop and sticky toffee soufflé were amazing.
    Unfortunately it was very quiet and lacked atmosphere. A full drinks menu and gin glasses would be a nice addition.

    Great food & friendly service and delightful location - particularly loved locally sourced ingredients & a kitchen that knows how to cook vegetables to perfection.

    This was not our first visit to The Star, and we have never been disappointed. The ambience is fresh and pleasing; it was particularly enjoyable on Tuesday which was a fine day. All credit to a chef who clearly enjoys his work and is not afraid to experiment. Service first class. Excellent value for money.
