A return after too many years away did not disappoint. Good selection of Real Ales available. As a Family party of 10, we enjoyed a delicious Sunday roast in the garden. Nestled between the River and the canal couldn't have asked for more. Matt the owner is doing a fine job in looking after this little jewel and trying to...

This was our first visit to the star with its new owners,having visited many times over the years it is one of our favourite pubs. We went for Sunday lunch and the food was lovely and plenty of it. Great atmosphere and staff hope it works out for them will definitely go back.

The Star is situated in a very nice village with a canal running behind it, and seems a popular pub with a decent range of ales. A selection of 6 - Malt Starry Nights, Dark Star American Pale Ale, Roosters Eighty Eight, Orkney Red Macgregor, Thwaites Lancaster Bomber & Oakham Inferno. The number of pumpclips on the walls show how...

Visited twice as this pub was a spit away from our holiday rental mollys cottage. Bar has a good selection of beers, food also good. It filled up very fast on the Wednesday evening on which we ate, no vacant tables after 30 minutes.

It was a beautiful day in wales,the bird's we're singing the sun was out,but the star was certainly not up to much. If you mean you consider ''much'' as a disgusting, shambolic rats nest. In my experience I have witnessed so many unpleasant visits to plenty of unappealing ''dives'' and your outlook on good staff and high cleaning standards are...
