As you step through the door, a warm welcome awaits from both the lovely wood burner and the owners. A great choice of drinks and a good quality menu, freshly prepared while you wait! The rooms are tastefully decorated to a...

I have never reviewed on trip advisor before but after today the cherry has to be popped. After a drive around with the family taking in the breathtaking scenery there is to see, we happened to see a sign for the pub. (I had seen the pub on my work travels and thought it would be nice to call for...

We stayed at The Star Inn for one night during January 17. The bar and restaurant area has been newly refurbished and is tastefully decorated to a high standard. It was lovely to sit by the open log fire while enjoying an excellent glass of Malbec. We were particularly impressed with the wine list !We ordered steak which was perfectly...

I stayed at The Star the night before a mountain biking event and was very impressed by the hosts, the bar /restaurant and my room. Nothing was too much trouble for them (one of them stayed up late for a tardy guest) and they very kindly let me keep my bike indoors. Food was very good, especially given how busy...

We had a lovely one night stay here. A warm welcome for the new owner Gareth and a blazing fire. The last time were were here a few years ago it was a bit dour to say the least. Now it is nicely decorated, clean and welcoming. The rooms are spacious and recently refurbished to a very professional standard. Gareth...

Was very surprised by how good this small inn was, primarily due to the extraordinary efforts of the owners to turn this place round. The bar was super cosy, and served decent meals. The Accomodation was excellent for the price. But it was the attitude of the management team that separates this place, such as making an excellent breakfast for...

We arrived on a very wet day, great welcome, good drying room, lovely room, very good heating system. We enjoyed a pre dinner drink in front of the open fire, which went down very nicely. We had a delicious dinner in the bar full of friendly locals, and very pleasant evening. Breakfast ticked all our boxes, nothing too much trouble!...

A group of us had lunch here on Friday - even though the new owners had only had the place for five days, they couldn't have been more welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble and they put on a lovely lunch for us. The pool table was going in, the beer will be on tap soon and The Star will...
