Stopped here a couple of years ago on the way back from the airport and had a lovely Sunday carvery and today we stopped again. Amazing customer service and great food a real treat well worth the money and will certainly stop when passing next time.

Over the past 5 years i've stopped at most of the pubs on the road to Bristol Airport to have a bite to eat. Some have been pretty good, and some absolutely awful. The Star is a carvery pub, and whilst they do offer other fare, I can't comment on that. There was a choice of 3 meats - beef,... More

Came across this place by accident whilst we were looking for somewhere that served food all day. They serve carvery 7 days along side a "pub grub" menu. I was informed that the beef was delicious & the gammon was also very good, turkey was also on offer. There was a good selection of vegetables, roasted parsnips being one of... More

We wondered into The Star late evening on a Saturday, and it was busy, usual entrance "Please wait here to be seated" so we waited, and waited, and waited, as staff on the bar watched us wait, and staff passed us a couple of times. Eventually we were attended to and shown to a table, where our needs were taken... More

This pub is very good but the food is only average.The problem with all day carvery is just that! The food is on display a long time and can be a little dried up if there are not many customers as was the case on the day we visited ( 1pm on a Wednesday ).On the plus side with this... More

Stopped in after a walk down the strawberry line for a bite to eat. The Star is nicely sized with an expansive garden towards the rear. HGV's and coaches are welcome as are dogs in a seperate area near the bar. We were warmly welcomed and served pleasantly and efficiently. Our meals were faultless and prepared in a timely manner....
