We took a family member out to celebrate a milestone birthday in this country pub. It was billed as 5 stars but to be honest the food was more homely that 5star.
The food took a long while to come and I’m assuming it was all freshly cooked, but potato wedges were a bit dark and soggy and a little burnt in places.
The steak was cooked well and onion jam really nice but would have liked it to be warmer. Other food fare at lunchtime fairly generalised, scampi and chips, sausage fries and gravy, chicken goujons and .. chips, bbq ribs and....chips
Not very inspired.

Hi Susan

Sorry we could not live up to our '5 bubbles' or even our '7 stars'.

All chips are triple cooked - apologies if not up to scratch.

Yes all food is cooked from fresh, so during busy periods there can be a slight wait on food (our kitchen is exceedingly small).

Being a pub, we do sell a large quantity of chips. I do think it unfair of you to generalise that all our food comes with chips. At lunch you would have had the option of 2 full menus (lunch and main), but you seemed to have chosen chip accompanied items. Our Dartmoor Lamb, Salmon Fillet, Elston Farm Chicken and Nasi Goreng are all non-rectangular spud associated (as are all of our other 7 lighter bites).

The sausages and chicken goujons are on the kids menu. Kids like chips.

We don't serve gravy - northern boys love gravy.

Again, if you had brought any to the above to our attention, I'm sure we could have tried to rectify the situation, We are happy for you to come and try our 'non-chip Adult menu' :)

All the best
Adam (Landlord)

Having recently moved into the area and having met Adam and Jack of The Seven Stars, we decided to give the place a go on their birthday weekend.
Adam and his team are lovely...we booked a table through messenger (to make sure we could get in)...replies were really quick and really friendly.
We received a warm welcome on the night, the service was excellent and we went on to have a fantastic meal.
We had the steak which was so tasty and filling...couldn't fault a single aspect of the night.
We will definitely back and would highly recommend the place.
Thanks to you all x

What excellent service we have had. Whilst most places haveground to a halt or shut.
The Seven Stars Kennford has thrown it's doors open to the cold and hungry. Normaly the kitchen would be closed from 3 till 6 pn a Sunday, but chef says he'll stay open for those that need it.
Top little pub
