There is a good atmosphere.An excellent range of beers and wines. The food is good and the service obliging and cheerful. Well worth calling in.

I am so sorry to hear that your second visit to us was so "disappointing" for you, especially when it seems you enjoyed your first visit enough to want to come back again. Firstly may I apologise for the disappointment with one of the meals, the Surf... More

We did a morning walk with friends and went here for lunch. There was traditional pub grub available but I was surprised to find Chinese food as well. Portions were definitely generous and the particular stars were the Peking Duck and the Penang Curry. This was washed down with Ringwood Best for the men and Aspall's Cider for the women.... More

I visited this pub with a group of friends (there were 6 of us altogether). I'd been there before with another friend, but we'd just had drinks that day. However, I'd been very impressed and had suggested The Star to my friends for our trip. This time I had something to eat and the food was excellent. The Star specialises... More

Popped in for a quick lunch with family. Warm and cozy atmosphere and we were made very welcome. Good range and quality of beer avaialble and well kept. Food was excellent value and freshly cooked. Excellent Thai food with a genuine Thai taste rather than any semi-english interpretation. Careful as when it the menu says the food is spicy, then... More

Friendly staff and excellent food! Nikki and Ian are excellent landlords making everyone (and their dogs) very welcome. The choice and quality of the wines are amazing and the food a delight. We will be back... Probably next weekend!

Had a Thai meal at the small pub last Friday Ordered the banquet for two and whilst the food was fine the portions were too big for us. In hindsight we probably should have just had starters and a main meal Despite the comments above we will probably return

3 visits in the last 3 months to this warming, congenial and atmospheric pub says it all! Landlord Ian and wife Nikki run an excellent establishment with smiling staff.

Oriental based menu. Speedy service and tasty food. Mixed Hors D'oeuvres to share and the stir fried beef were excellent. Busy though so need to book.
