A very pleasant village pub, with excellent draught beers. We had the rib eye steak. It was superb. From their own cattle. Hung which resulted in a steak, which was tender and with a wonderful flavour. The chips were also terrific as were the mushrooms...More

Popped in to The Old Star for lunch. Small but perfect country pub, right opposite the church. Well furnished with lots of quirky decorations (old pith helmets hanging from the ceiling) and several rooms, all served from the central bar. Selection of four real ales,...More

The Old Star in Kilham is a traditional country pub in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds and the local community. Real Ales and freshly prepared local meals are a mainstay. With 2 log burners and 2 open fires throughout the pub a warm welcome is guaranteed even on the chilliest winter (or summer) evening. A south-facing beer garden means children, dogs and sun-seekers are well catered for. Alternating Wednesdays we hold a quiz night. We are flexable to do take-way too, please just submit your order and we will prepare it for you! For tables of 6+ booking is appreciated as this will allow for better service for you and other diners. The pub is dog friendly, however during eating and peak hours owners are requested to ensure their dogs are under control and out of the dining areas. Looking forward to see you soon!
