Booked a table for 10 people and was V V disappointed with the standard of food and service. Visited this place previously and it was really nice. Gone downhill big time though! I personally ordered a stuffed chicken Kiev. Which consisted of an uncooked chicken swimming in butter with some garlic cloves in. I complained and was astounded to be... More

Service and atmosphere very good, let down by a poor carbonara, tagliatteli overcooked and mushy, chicken was bland and tasteless, where were the eggs the main ingredient in a carbonara sauce? Many meals overpriced, especially the specials. Have visited many times, so will visit again but not for a while.

We visited the Star Inn today for the first time. We had not booked and on arrival it was very busy. We were greeted warmly and a table for two was found. Our waitress was extremely personable and we received very efficient and pleasant service. The Menu was extensive, and a little different which we liked. We had two courses... More

Large portions however the roast potatoes were the worst that I had ever eaten. They appear to have been reheated under a grill being almost black on one side and white on the other. A fellow diner had beef which was so tough he was unable to eat it.

This is one of the best places to eat in an unhurried manner.The owner Mark has trained the staff to a high standard..and that matches the food and service..

Plenty of good things. Good starters. Great cheese board. Trio of pork tasty. Few minuses. Brusque waitress. Poussin not cooked enough (what's with this poussin thing?!). Potatoes greasy. Portions monster size. Would I go back? Yeah, maybe. But it's over priced, tarted up pub food if I'm honest......

We pre ordered and we were sat around with steaks for g cold as they hadn't brought the pepper sauce we ordered. Also sat for most of the evening with empty drinks and jo sign of the waiting staff.... More

Me and my partner visited the star tonight for a meal after hearing good things. When arrived was shocked at how small and loud the place was we had a starter and main in under a hour and couldn't wait to leave. The nacho sharing starter was average with a supposedly beef chilli that had no heat and also would... More
