Quinno _ left this review about Golden Star

A pretty pub in all respects, the interior felt particularly characterful with a wood tile floor, nicotine shades on the walls and ceiling (along with embossed wallpaper), pot plants and lots of old windows. No piped music, which was a nice novelty. Another Norwich pub still insistent on table service, the (Norwegian?) barmaid was a sight for sore eyes at least, friendly and efficient. Ales on; 2x GK, one each from Wolf and Lacons, the latter’s Legacy was ok (NBSS 2.5), plus two ciders in addition. A pleasant stop – better beer would have really boosted it. Worth a look-in.
Visited early August.

Greene King pub to which I paid my first visit yesterday, on a tour of the city's pubs. It's a corner pub with a couple of rooms. We sat in the front bar, where the toilets have been made unisex.

Greene King IPA & Abbot are the regular ales. Guests were Green Duck Orange Wheat Beer & Oakham Citra, whilst there were also a couple of ciders - Weston's Rosie's Pig & Lilley's Mango Cider. Customers and staff were friendly and generally interested in hearing about what pubs we had on our itinerary!

A couple of mins walk from the Rumsey wells. Opens at 12 noon and gets very busy for lunch. Five handpumps on the bar and four in use on our visit. Ales on the day were GK IPA, Abbott, Hooky Bitter and Bath Ales Gem. The pub hosts bar billards, board games and a ships cat named Winston. An interesting pub and well worth a visit.

This is a decent looking Greene King tied house.
I had a drink Of GK IPA i could'nt get to see what the pub was like as it was very full with people watching a folk type group this was on a saturday afternoon.
I might have enjoyed my visit if the pub was a bit quieter.
