This village local consists of a single room that is split into different areas. There is a central bar and to the right a raised area and an area with a pool table. On the left is what looks like a dining room and an area with comfy chairs. The dart board by the window in the central area was obstructed. I got here soon after midday on a Thursday and it was largely quiet until approaching late afternoon.
The bar has twelve hand pumps which had five Penzance beers and Milltown Black Jack Stout (£3.30). I tried the lot and found the Penzance brews to be very pleasant old school beers despite including two Boring Brown Beers!
They were Crowlas Bitter (£3.00), Potion No 9 (£3.10), Brisons Bitter (£3.20), Crow An Wra (£3.30) and Lamorna Gold (£3.80).
I thought this was an excellent place and would gladly return.

Everything that aleand hearty said. Cannot fault this place at all. It is a mecca for beer lovers, and the ale quality is superb. 4 Penzance beers available and we had IPA, Brison's Bitter and Potion No 9. Also enjoyed the guest which was Sheffield Brewery Mild Steel. Locals rubbed it in as to how good it is living so close to such a good pub, but it is friendly banter with strangers you feel comfortable with. Will be back, again and again.....

Above June 2011 and we were back there on this year's holiday enjoying the well kept ales. Chose Hop Kettle brewery beer and Potbelly as well as their own beer. No problem.

Situated on the A30, a couple of miles out of Penzance, The Star is a large, stone-built, roadside pub, with a semi open-plan interior. Featuring a centrally located bar, it has a large collection of beer mats and pump clips and is surrounded by slate flooring. To the right there’s an area that houses a pool table and dartboard and a small raised carpeted section that is enclosed by a slightly imposing arrangement of wooden beams and pillars, as Roger rightly comments. To the left of the bar, there are two rooms. One looks to be for the use of diners only and the other appears to be a function room (cordoned off during our visit.)

Décor is largely based on contrasting green and white artex, lit by Tiffany / stained- glass lamps and softened by wall-mounted agricultural implements, plus the odd bit of horse tack.

Six pumps were on the go during our visit, a mix of the pub’s own Penzance beers and guests from further afield. We tried Penzance Potion No.9 and Pardoe’s Dark Swan and both were very good. Unfortunately, the Liverpool Organic Brewery’s IPA seemed to be on the turn, possibly not getting a decent turnover due to its high strength?

I found the landlord / barman to be friendly and welcoming and the locals willing to engage in a bit of banter at the bar. Although fairly quiet when we called late afternoon, it still felt relaxed rather than oppressive.

I rather liked The Star; probably because it was the first Cornish pub I’d been into that felt like a proper, beer-led, community local and not merely a tourist honey pot. Would definitely call in again, if staying in the area. Recommended.
