Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Star Inn

Very attractive village pub, both inside and out, which doesn't disappoint in any respect. Although partly opened-out and (slightly) modernised at some stage, the 'L'-shaped bar / dining area (part of which now lies behind a wood-burning stove in a substantial old fireplace) retains a lot of character. There is also a front patio that catches any afternoon / evening sun, and one of the regular live music sessions was just starting when I visited. Five real ales on handpump: Banks's Amber, Wainwright, Lancaster Bomber, Bath Ales Gem and a decent Daleside Monkey Wrench (£3.80).

Bucking Fastard left this review about The Star Inn

Attractive looking pub from the outside and a friendly welcome within.Range of Marstons real ales with very well kept Cocker Hoop.Didnt try the food but most other customers were eating and it looked good,and the mixed grill was seriously large.After 9pm The Star becomes a real community pub,darts can be played and there is a good atmosphere.Possibly the best pub in Penkridge.Original review 9/2/10.

UPDATE May 2011.
Still a good range of ales from the Marston's portfolio and the gut busting mixed grill among a limited food menu still there ,but the lunchtime airing of 4Music both on the flat screen and via the PA was offputting ,overloud and compromised the atmosphere even if it gave me the chance to be educated about Will I Am.Minus one points.However the authentic interior is worth browsing around,and the exposed timbers show the buildings age.

Thuck Phat left this review about The Star Inn

A welcoming exterior is reflected inside with a comfortable atmosphere and a number of original features retained.
We didn't eat but the menu offers standard pub fare and, it being lunchtime, people were taking advantage and the food looked decent.
Beer is from the Marstons stable with EPA, Banks Bitter and Mild, Jennings Cocker Hoop and Ringwood Fortyniner on. The Cocker Hoop was fine without being the best I've had by a good way.
As Mr Fastard mentions, the music is overloud and grated in this traditional boozer.
