A Marstons pub by the canal, with two levels and two bars. The lower Canal Bar seems to be the original pub, judging by the shape of the two rooms and the ancient door leading out to the lock gate. I bought my drink from the upper bar, where there are four hand pumps (see photo). I had not had Banks's Amber Bitter before, so was pleasantly surprised to discover it was a very good and well-balanced bitter, with a lingering dry finish. I'm not a great fan of Marstons, but have to say this was a truly excellent beer. (I would have stopped for more but I was trying to catch up with a group that I'd arranged to meet, my train having arrived an hour late.) Stone has a number of very good pubs, and I would not hesitate to return to this one if in town again.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Star

A decent well kept pub with a traditional interior as you would expect for its idyllic location. We called on a Friday afternoon around five with the sun blazing, so the beer garden was full to capacity with numerous bottles of chilled white wine served in stainless steel wine coolers. Four handpumps on the bar with three in operation, Bank's Bitter, Pedigree and Sunbeam. We went for the Sunbeam which was decent enough.

As noted it is right by a lock so if you're lucky you might get to see the canal boats passing through. As for the pub it is nice and worth an hour or two of your time.
