Great food, coffee and atmosphere. The recent renovation has worked wonders. Ian and Naomi were great hosts, will definitely be returning!

As a table of 7 we were a complex order but the food came speedily and to a great standard. Our waitress Naomi greeted us with a smile and was extremely helpful and welcoming. Credit must be given to the chef (I believe his name was Ian). It's also reasonably priced. Would definitely come again and recommend to anyone!!

Came here for breakfast this morning and were warmly welcomed by Naomi! Great service and amazing food. Breakfast menu has a wide variety of options and Ian the chef was happy to cater for our specific needs. Would definitely come back!

Went for the first time today with my nephew for lunch. He ordered the meatballs The meat was far from cooked properly and the whole thing frankly looked like a plate of dog food. He sent it back and ordered the fish and chips. The chips came almost burnt and the batter was seriously undercooked. The fish didn't taste great either. Sent that back as well. I had the fish pie which was marginally better but there was no sauce to speak of only a watery mush where the pie had obviously been reheated/cooked from frozen. Also very bland. The waitress however, was lovely and extremely apologetic and we were only charged for the drinks. But first impressions count and we won't be going there again.

We have been to The Star in the past and were very much looking forward to our return visit today, but sadly we were dissapointed. This used to be such a happy, welcoming place. Despite it being cold & rainy outside, the fireplace was not lit. This could have been overlooked, however the cakes on offer were bordering on stale. Thankfully after complaining, we left having only paid for the coffee's. Restaurant has gone through a refurb and sadly this appears to have ripped out the heart that The Star used to have. Won't be back again.
