Bury St Edmunds Star Inn

Bury St Edmunds Star Inn

also traded as One Star

closed 1923

9 or 10 Mustow St

grid reference TL 857 643

The Star Inn was demolished in the 1920s for road-widening.

It's also been listed at 12 Mustow Street in 1844 and at 9 Mustow Street in 1891.

Researching my maternal grandmother’s family I discovered they once lived in Mustow St. only a couple of doors away from the Star Inn. This wonderful street scene (see main picture) shows what I believe is the Star (with huge chimneys). regards, Anthony Worman

Nearby to the Fox was the Star Inn, which, while only a small distance from the Fox, was within Mustow Street. Mustow Street turns into Eastgate Street when the road reaches the Broadway at the bend in the road. The Star had been here for at least 200 years, and was an old timber framed building. It had been a Carriers Inn, but the obvious narrowness of the road at this point was its undoing…
