The Star Inn is the quintessential 16th Century English pub with its large log fires, oak beams, real ales & its warm, welcoming atmosphere. The pub has been run by two CAMRA members since Dec 2023.

The pub offers three real ales with plans to put a fourth on. The lines are all new, with the new cellar project managed by members of CAMRA. Focusing on local breweries and have "meet the brewer" events and beer festivals every other month. Pub also has 70 craft beers available.

For January 2024, charcuterie and cheese boards will be available during lunch-time every day of the week, along with an evening pizza menu from mid-January 2024. There are also food trucks, theme evenings and guest chefs. A wider food selection will be available from February 2024 onwards and the pub hopes to offer Sunday roasts from March 2024.

Ales are served through ancient Lady Pumps; the Star is one of only two pubs in the country with these.

Accommodation and an on-site brewery are also planned.

It was originally run as a Beer House in the 19th Century, when it acquired its name. Today it is a Grade II listed building in a conservation area, and boasts beautiful bressemer beams, carved oak beams in an old English style.
