  • Had one of the biggest (and most enjoyable) roast dinners here. Spent the gorgeous sunny afternoon here with friends. Very relaxing place and friendly staff. Reasonably priced too.

  • I've visited The Star a few times now and it never disappoints. Lovely atmosphere, pleasant bar staff and always good music and booze.

    If you haven't tried it already, they do an absolutely wicked bloody mary - 10/10 would recommend to a friend.
