Had the pleasure of dining with family on the 16th, met outside by the owner a real character, very helpful & a lot of fun so hard to forget. The food was of a very high standard, well cooked and we all enjoyed the meal and evening as a whole, was a shame to leave but look forward to going... More

Visited primarily due to it being a pub frequented by my ancestors in early 1800's and found it to be authentically historic even in the 21st century. A real trip back to the past! Staff really helpful and efficient and were able to supply interesting historic detail. Food was lovely and would love to go back.

This was the first visit for us and our two friends and on arrival everyone was welcoming. It was a lovely olde pub with a rouring fire and lots of choice of food on chalk boards hanging around the bar. We were informed we were upstairs in the restaurant but we had to decide on the food downstairs as there... More

On a cold winter's night, this is a lovely, lovely pub. Warm, rich interior, both in furnishings and from the staff. A menu that is to die for, with home cooked options abounding across the 5 blackboards. Food is top notch and reasonably priced. Harvey's (the best beer in the world) is fresh and on tap. Plenty of parking, yet... More

Lunch today was pretty poor. Starters, goats cheese mushroom which was quite tasty. Chicken liver pate, OK a bit bland no seasoning, no butter served with bread. Very average. Main courses: Moules and chips. Moules ok, chips cooked in stale oil / fat. Mushroom stroganoff. Appalling! Have you ever had a stroganoff packed with tomato sauce and chilli? Totally inedible...

Had dinner with our friends and Kiwi (our labradoodle -very dog friendly) in our new local. Mike and his partner were most welcoming, and treated us really well. The food was delicious and there was a fab veggie option and the choice of wine well ......it's gonna take a year to try them all. Thankyou all see you again soon.

I visited yesterday with my friends and we enjoyed a fabulous three course lunch, excellent service & the owner was most welcoming as were his staff. This is a traditional pub with a great atmosphere and warmth about it. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit again, well done to The Star & a Happy New Year to you all. Mrs Hogan

Visited for Sunday lunch. Fantastic little place with daily specials. Good choice of tap beers and if you like wine ask for the wine list, there are some top quality wines that are priced extremely well. Sunday lunch was fantastic, good portion size. Will be back.

Bunch of lovely ladies from Finland being hosted, we made a mistake and ate somewhere else in Heathfield instead of eating here which would have been better value for money for sure. Still, we came back and two out of six ate. The food was superb, freshly cooked and served hot and promptly. Better on the fish is just divine!... More

A last minute decision to go out for a light bite lunch with my husband, we came to the Star. On a beautiful sunny wintery morning, the outside looked shabby and tired and the carpark litter strewn and messy. I commented to my husband that I hated sticker/notice covered windows and extractor fans at the front... It just all looked... More
