Had a lovely meal - again. The restaurant was busy but the staff treated each person as the most important diner! I had lamb shanks and it was beautifully cooked! The orange roughy that Rob had was much enjoyed too. Thank you

Visited for lunch. Had originally thought a coffee would suffice, but after seeing the menu (mushrooms !) decided to stay to eat properly.
Naturally, had the mushrooms and salmon skewers which was scrumptious, then opted for apple crumble as dessert, all washed down with light beer.
As you can deduct, all was wonderful ! Quality of service was fabulous too, with a clear knowledge of the products, as well as being nicely bubbly and welcoming.
Yes, definitely worthy of a repeat visit.

Arrived at a full restaurant but we were seated immediately. Although it was busy we were served promptly, politely and in a very friendly manner. We both ordered the blue cod as we had received a couple of recommendations recently and we were not disappointed. The batter was light and crisp and the fish fresh and flakey. The dessert menu was enticing but we were both left completely full after the generously portioned fish meal. Will go back and will not hesitate to recommend

This cafe was highly rated yet didn't have any cakes or similar for morning tea. I can't remember ever finding a cafe like that before so we didn't try it.

Star & Garter has been serving great food for longer than I can remember and the recent visit back to my home town did not disappoint.
My friend and I went out to dinner and had fantastic meals, once we finally decided on what to get-it all sounded good and we didn't want to have food envy once we committed to a dish. One of pork and one of steak. These meals were extremely generous and tasted delish!
The lady working that night was a fabulous host and was attentive throughout our meal.
