Soup Dragon left this review about The Star

A pub that takes its name from a celestial body, which should have looked to the coal industry for inspiration instead - The Pits, or The Hell Hole would be more accurate. Its an Ember Inn, and yes, when i left i had the horrible thought that i wished embers were all that was left of it. I resented the waste of shoe leather walking to it.

A large detached brick build, with a beer patio.

The interior is open plan around the central bar. It's modern, with vases, stacks of wood and arty pictures (including one of, yes, vases)positioned on bland white, cream, beige and salmon walls for maximum effect; and it worked, i felt like i wanted to leave pretty quickly. The eclectic mix of high stools, comfy chairs, sofas was present, along with silent TVs, background music set a little too loud so you got all the young clientele shouting to each other in order to be heard - especially to their mate, the barman, when asking for a choccy sundae and four spoons. Service i received was fine.

Beer; tap stuff, with Brew XI, Spekky Hen, Brew Dog and Brains Merlin Oak on handpull, the Oak was ok to start, but went flat.

Devoid of character, this place seemed to be aimed at the young and those that want to recapture it.
