Good beer guide 2020 entry.

We arrived 30 minutes before opening and caught them in preparation. I dont think the landlord and landlady were in the best of moods. Asked if we could sit in their garden to wait for opening and after a long pause - was met with "if you want to".

In this post covid lock down world, the pub itself was not open for entry and they had setup in a marquee in the garden. We watched them having a polite argument with each other as they setup shop. It finished with a whispered "I have turned the f*****g pumps off".

We wondered whether we should stay or go!

A family came in and got served at 11:50 - so we chanced our arm - despite everything going against it - gravity fed Trawlerboys served in my first plastic glass of reopening - the beer was pretty good.

Unfair really to rate - as its not functioning as you would expect, so I haven't seen it at its best.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Star Inn

We really liked this pub, it has great food, well kept ales and friendly staff. The pub also has a good relaxed atmosphere about it. Four ales on handpump, two from Adnams, I went for the Strummer Brewery, Strummer and Cliff Quay, Clipper.

We had not been to Southwold and the surrounding area for five years, and it was good to visit The Star Inn as it has always been a favourite of mine. It is still unspoilt with three separated areas simply decorated and furnished. The menu had a selection of sensibly priced dishes, with some interesting variations. Curly kale does not figure on many pub menus. The landlord was friendly, and had Adnams Bitter, New Zealand Pale Ale and Ghost Ship on draught. I do not recall seeing Broadside, which is unusual, and I may have missed it. Well worth a visit.
