Didn't realize what a gem we had in Petworth - on a busy Christmas week day we had perfect cottage pie and fish chips - best friendly service - delicious food - out American friends were over the moon with the whole pub experience which is so natural and low key - delicious!!!!

I simply love this pub. The staff are always very friendly; Chris the manager is always very welcoming and helpful. Good choice of drinks and great food. Probably the best pub in the local area of Petworth House.

Can't recommend The Star enough - have had many visit for lunch and dinner with family and friends, never been disappointed. Best pub around with outstanding food and a lovely atmosphere. Chris, Ryan and the team are all wonderful and you'll be well looked after. Can't wait for our next visit New Years Day!!!
